Well, according to the rules my photo should qualify....it IS a photograph of something that is a part(avery SMALL part)of something else(our solar system/galaxy/universe)
I hate to be a stickler, but if this definition is allowed to slide the only photo that could be disqualified would be one that was of the entire universe. In Mtngal's rules she said, "a dragonfly is not a detail (macro yes, detail no), but a dragonfly's eye is". A dragonfly is a part of an ecosystem and certainly part of the universe, so the implication here should be that the detail should be a part of a single object, not a complete object unto itself as the entire moon certainly is.

I agree with Corpsy- that's really stretching things a bit too far. It'sa wonderful picture of the moon, but it really isn't a detail as I defined it in the rules.

After a light rain this morning, I came upon this thread of a spider web stretched across a path

Well, I would argue the point, but since it's your challenge this month I'll bow to your opinion.

The more I look at this picture, Roger, the more I like it - a simple picture that says a lot.

Here is my entry, I like the way the single light reflects off of the paint on one of our six panel doors that we put in the house several years ago (about 9 of them). My wife painted them with a Wagner sprayer and they came out with this orange peel coating.

I like the white-on-white look of your door.

Remember, this weekend is the last weekend for this month's challenge - last chance to post something.
