This week, you lot were given the task of taking pictures of small things, which resulted in some pretty snazzy shots. Once again, sorry that this week's challenge went up a little bit later than planned, but next week should (hopefully) be more streamlined. With that out of the way, let's take a look at our entries!

McSeanerson gave us two photos that are pretty far apart in terms of subject:

"T2i, 35mm f/2.0 @2.0 1/30 second iso 800

I didn't approach this wanting to do a black and white shot but after I started adjusting things in Lightroom I think it just works that way."

"Canon T2i, 50mm f/1.8 @ 1.8 1/60 second iso 400

Nothing to see here, just Starlord rocking out a '55 Nomad."

Up next are some photos from KnowsAboutCars, which are stellar for a phone camera (and for a normal camera, too):

"Nokia Lumia 1020, f/2.2, 1/4 sec, ISO 1600

This isn't a very recent photo but one month old is kinda recent, right? I shot this picture of one of my scale models for a post on LaLD and it's one of the best photos I've taken with my phone camera so far."

"Lumia 1020, f2,2, 1/19 sec, ISO 400

This one is for you H4v0c :) Not much to see here, just a lazy shot of a tin of Sisu salmiakki chewing gum."

BATC42 gave us a photo which mixes two things that should never be together, unless they're both really small:

"Guiness bottle in Minichamps 2005 GL-Class.

Taken with a Fujifilm X-A1 and a Fujifilm XF35 at f/2, 1/160th and ISO500. Changed the color profil from Adobe Standard to Fujifilm Astia/Soft while developping the RAW in Lightroom. The difference in color between the two profiles is astounding, with Fuji's being a bit darker and more contrasted than Adobe's profile."

Happy Panda gave us this rad photo:

"Some details after finishing the first section on the LEGO MINI Cooper model (10242)

Fujifilm X-Pro1, XF35 f/1.4, 1/30s ISO1600@f4.0. Processed in Lightroom with the built-in Fujifilm Astia profile, lowering saturation and adding some clarity"

With an incredibly late entry, we have Lumpy44 and a bit of his kit:

"A pretty small lens is the best I could do at this time of day. Taken with my 20d and 28-90mm Canon kit lens."

Lastly, we have a photo from I'll take 911 RS for $5000:

"TI MSP-430 Launchpad. Shot indoors with not enough light on Sony a7, Minolta 58/1.2 on 36mm extension tubes. The extension tubes really cut down on available light and sharpness; I had to take this at ISO 12800, 1/60 sec, and either f/4 or f/8. This lens is usually crazy sharp at that point, but hey. I'll figure them out. I'm quite excited for this spring when the flowers come out."

Thanks to everyone who participated! And remember to keep an eye open Monday for next week's challenge!
