January 2012 Foo Photo Contest - We have a winner!

Since I messed up on who got to choose the theme a couple of months ago, we will have two themes for January.

Theme #1, chosen by October's winner Spock: Street photography with human element

Theme #2, chosen by November's winner BillyD: closeups/macro photos, nature ONLY


Rules:
Themes: see above
- You must be the photographer
- You may submit one photo for each theme
- Try to make the photo(s) recent

Good luck everyone!

I'll throw my hat in the ring with this one, unless I can find a better offering between now and the end of the month:

So let me see if I got this straight. Instead of the normal 1 photo rule, this month can enter 2 photos. However, one has to be og the street photography and the other photo has to be a closeup/macro - not 2 of the same class.

At the end of the month, presume it will still be just 1 vote combining the categories with 1 winner to get everything balanced out?

I like, I was tempted to use a close up of a dungeness crab I took at the San Francisco aquarium. I think I have that one posted over in the "Post your Photography" thread in the last few pages.

Yes, you can submit one photo for each theme. At the end of the month people will vote for which photos they like the best from all that were submitted for both themes combined. So they could vote for "tizeye macro/nature" and "tizeye street photo" as two of their choices. Whichever photo gets the most votes will win, regardless of theme.

Street Photography With Human Influence ... entitled: Bendigo in Autumn




(I'll go with this one for now ... if something better comes along, I'll make a switch. I don't have a lot of street photos, mine tend to be more nature-inclined.)
