    The theme of the contest is: - Mushrooms

    "Mushroom" describes a variety of gilled fungi, with or without stems, and the term is used even more generally, to describe both the fleshy fruiting bodies of some Ascomycota and the woody or leathery fruiting bodies of some Basidiomycota.

    1st Prize: - 24x36 print on canvas Visual Magnetics Material (value $170.00)

    2nd Prize: 18x24 Print same material. (value $140.00)

    New: Sponsors Choice Award!

    It will be printed and shipped anywhere in the world for free.

    To understand the material you'll have to look at the web site videos: Visual Magnetics Graphic System

    Thanks. Here is one I took in the backyard with my E-P1 and a legacy lens (probably the 50 mm, f/1.4 screw-mount Pentax lens). Thanks.
