I like that first one. The black is a nice contrast to the crystal and also the crystal is more defined.

<---- Needs macro lens!

Their all good but the first one is GREAT!! Very nice shot! The amount of contrast in it and the depth of field is perfect to make that snowflake just leap out at you. :thumbsup: That one would be perfect for blowing it up a bit and putting it in a nice, custom sized frame!

I ran it through Genuine Fractals and can now get a 30" wide print from it. :)

Ammot - I didn't use a dedicated macro lens, just my 40-150 mounted on an extension tube.

A 10x30(or something close to that aspect ratio) would look STUNNING matted, framed and hung on your wall! :thumbsup:

I need to "locate" Genuine Fractals for Mac...its something ive done without for a while but if your a heavy cropper like i can sometimes be, it can be tough to make larger prints.

I was going to get more after the last storm, but it was so cold that the flakes were crazy small...
