Finally got a shot of a snowflake worth sharing. It doesn't hold a candle to Don Komarechka's work, Snowflakes | Don Komarechka Photography (http://www.donkom.ca/category/snowflakes/), but it's the best one I've gotten so far.

The shape of it is really elaborate and interesting.

You don't realize that snowflakes have such an intricate pattern until you see them up close. Well done Iggy.

Cool Iggy!
Reversed nifty 50?

Thanks, Marko. Yep. As usual :) Got my reversing ring which makes it much easier than hand-holding the lens as I have in the past. :)

I think I'm going to have to take some time to look into better macro tools. As much as the reversed 50mm is easy and useful I find it hard to get any DOF. This was shot at f8 and still, without focus stacking (and that just seems painful), parts of the image are out of focus.


Cool Iggy!

Nicely shot Iguanasan. The detail is pretty cool. Now the next challenge is to find one exactly the same :)
