The Macro category is far and away the most technically demanding category that we judge in this competition, but invariably the images that are most striking are those that achieve technical excellence and a clear creative vision. Sam's spider impressed the judges with a razor-sharp focus on the eyes, combined with a clean and striking composition that uses negative space to give us a sense of scale.
