That is one great snow flake macro! Can't wait to read what was your setup. Smells like a macro coupler.. 8.

Great detail on the flake. Could use a hair more DOF to keep the whole flake focused.

Wow, wow, wow! I am always envious of these wonderful macros that have crisp features along with subtle depth of field. If this is a real snowflake I salute you! Either way..one of my favorites this week.

Thats amazing, is that natural?

I love how the snowflake is sharp in the middle but slightly fuzzy on the edges. I'm not sure what it's resting on, though, and that's a bit distracting.

Wow ... how did you isolate the snowflake?
