Results contest: Water and Oil

The 'Oil and water' contest was not an easy one.  If you master the technique, it can provide amazing macro abstracts.  Lesser participants than usual, but  each submission was gorgeous.  We hope that they inspired everyone to try it out in the future. 

The winners with the most votes are: 

1st place:  Carmelo Caserta
2nd place: Louis-Philippe Provost
3rd place: Ute Scherhag

Congratulations and thanks to all the participants of the contest 'Oil and water'.

'Sleeping beauties'
  is the currently running theme.
Just as water and food are immensely critical, sleep is crucial to human health and well-being. Humans and animals require sleep in order for their bodies to repose and become invigorated for the next day. Enter your best "sleeping beauty" shots.

The contest 'Sleeping beauties' will end at midnight on Sunday the 26th of May 2019.  The sooner you upload your image, the more chance you have to gather the most votes.
