    Of the ones posted since anyone last commented

    LOVE kentwaller's autumn vineyard pattern. I can see that as fabric in a dress with swaths of fabric diagonal across the bodice. The tower photo is really nice too but I'm probably too dense to see which category it belongs in.

    My favorite of Alan's is the tree rings one, although all of his are very textury (to coin a word) but I love how saturated the tree rings are.

    The smoke rings and the jelly ones are nice abstract art.

    Took me a minute to figure out 'friends' from the title. That's a really cool photo.

    I think of the lilac as more of a pattern than a texture. I love lilacs, and would have had them as flowers at my wedding except it was the wrong time of year. I also like the glacier. The blue ice is so interesting - you might think it wasn't really that color, but it absolutely is!!!

    thanks grandmaR! i went back and put categories by my pics, I forgot to do that.

    Thank you Eric and Superduckz for your entries.

    Eric - love the texture of the lilacs - very nice. Great job with post-processing as well.

    Superduckz - The little lone flower struggling to thrive (and succeeding) among the rocks is a fascinating subtext for the texture of the rocks. Good eye!
    Happy Shooting, Scott

    There are already some amazing photos. Hard to compete.
    Interesting theme. Made me look back at all my pictures with different eyes. And realised I did not have many that could fit...

    1. Texture - the red centre

    2. Texture - and maybe smell :D

    I love them all Claire! Thank you for entering. The middle one with the seaweed makes me homesick for Downeast Maine - I'll be there in two weeks, and it can't come soon enough.

    Also, the "Arches Within Arches" image is a splendid take on the pattern theme.

    Wow, you are quick to comment!
    This seaweed in from Tasmania but probably hard to tell the difference :D
    I understand your feeling, I love expatriation (before Australia, now Germany and maybe Singapore in a few months if I get the job) but coming back to what you call your hometown is such a great feeling. Only 2 weeks left, it will come quickly!

    Mini-Challenge #165 Now Closed
    The contest is now closed - we will no longer be accepting entries.

    I would like to personally thank you all for your well composed, creative, and beautiful entries. It will take me most of the weekend to decide on a winner - there were 50+ images submitted!

    Look for a post sometime during the day on Monday (6/3) with the winner and runners-up announced.

    Thanks again for such a high level of participation. Although the final decision will be very difficult, it has a been a joy perusing through all of your images. Not a bad one in the mix!
