Abstract Macro

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

Some macro shots can’t help but be abstract, such is the strangeness with which the macro lens can render the most familiar of subjects. Others are made so with intent, and can have the viewer scratching their head asking what they’re looking at. Getting one’s first macro lens, macro filter or extension tubes is an exciting time, and opens up a world of new possibilities. Here we’re wanting to see how you’ve uncovered or created abstract compositions from the world when you’ve shot it up-close.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
