I love this challenge idea, and my first submissions will be a couple of little bits of iconic corporate culture up close and personal






Both shots were taken with the Pentax K20d in full manual mode using a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 Di LD Macro lens with stacked 20 and 12mm macro extension tubes. In both cases the front of the lens was nearly in contact with the subject. Exposure data for both shots....ISO 250, 1/13th of a sec, f/32.0. Natural light (semi-sunshine) was used for both. Shots were hand-held using Shake Reduction because a tripod couldn't be manipulated into the right position for the shots.

Shot #1 represents a crop of about 1/4 of the original image. Shot #2 is nearly full-frame. Post-processing was limited to levels and sharpness.

The first shot looks like the Chevy logo on a headlight or tail light. The second looks like a Ford logo a floor mat.

Very nice photos. Is the second photo a close up of a tire?

Rim of a tire. Right you are flutelady. I wondered what that thing sticking up was. Its the wear indicators. Is that a Goodyear tire?

It is the "O" and the "D" of the word Goodyear on the tires of my wife's Chevy Malibu... on which the Chevy logo is emblazoned on the reflector inside the high-beam headlight.
