Without any more delay, here are the results....

Honorable Mention #1
rio-indio-trip-4-XL.jpg
travelways - Leaf cutter ants in Valle de Anton, Panama
These industrious little guys are something many wouldn't bother taking a picture of and some might not even like being around (ewwww, bugs). Despite this though, I'm sure they can do some very interesting things we might enjoy watching.

Honorable Mention #2

pegelli - Turn right
I enjoy cars and many of the small details. I've taken galleries of photos at cruise nights that are only close up images. Sometimes, the more subtle, the better. This one is certainly not the image most would take of a car. The added detail of the inner texture for better light visibility is nice too.

Third Place

kdotaylor - Part of a Guitar
I like the texture, detail, and depth of field of this one. A simple image of one detail, but done very well

Second Place

DonRicklin - Faerie Chair
A great little creation. If just left there, something that would certainly be missed by many. I suspect it was placed there with the intentions of photographing it, but that doesn't take away from the little chair at all. I'd be interested in seeing how the builder made it as well.

First Place

sarasphotos - Window-pull in the city hall, Hamburg, Germany
Just the kind of thing I had in mind. Judging by this item, the rest of the room/building was probably impressive and very picture worthy, but you found a seemingly simple item and focused on detail of it.

Congratulations to all who entered and I look forward to seeing what the next category is.

    Wow, Adam thanks! In light of the many wonderful entries I never imagined I would would be chosen. I'm indeed honored.

    Congratulations to the other winners and HMs - they were all really wonderful shots!

    FYI, yes indeed the room was magnificent - but rather dark and hard to capture with the 40mm lens I had on at the time, so as you guessed I concentrated on the many wonderful details.

    I'll give some thought to the next challenge and post in the next 24 hours.

    Thank you for the second place finish. This was by one of the lakes at Acadia NP, Deer Island, Maine. My wife and I were hiking there and came across this. It was quite small. Maybe 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall. Quite lovely.

    Good eye for catching that then. I figured for sure it was something made then brought into the setting. It would seem that it might have been made there and then left in place.
