The Up Close photography project may have closed last Sunday but the opportunity to explore and admire the 5326 amazing macro images contributed to the project is far from over.
I took that opportunity last Monday and needless to say I only got as far as south-west Victoria (the centre of the universe in my books). Was I impressed and amazed by the subject matter and calibre of the photography? Absolutely!
The Up Close competition attracted a swag of photographers new to ABC Open, new to publishing online and new to me; I had no idea that there is so much talent hiding in the woodwork. So, I set about tracking down some of these gifted photographers, dragging them further out of the woodwork and into the ABC Open spotlight. Over the next few weeks, I hope you will enjoy exploring their photographs and reading their profiles on ABC Open.
For now however I want you take a look at the above photo slideshow which showcases some of the magnificent photographs captured by photographers in this region.
Photographers showcased in this slideshow include: Jo Merriman, Marty Shoo, Leonie Guldies, Vicky Hughson, Anne Demanser, Stacey Chilcott, Chloe Paul, Berit Hampel, Chris Cope, Natalie McArlein, Sally Patterson, Tessa Benge, Don Fraser and Fi Tunnicliff.
