third one is very clear; one of the few subjects where a trinocular microscope would come in handy.

Thank you everyone :)

I used my Canon Powershot A95 with tube adapter (A80) and a cheapo .38x macro lens off of eBay. Very basic setup which I am upgrading. Just waiting for the delivery truck :D

First, those are some AMAZING pictures.
Second, I feel like the depth of field is too small, just by a tiny bit. It feels like a wall on either side of the snowflake, coming in to crush it, especially in #s 1 and 2. #3 isn't anywhere near as bad, must be the wood grain.
Don't get me wrong, I still like them!

The first two the flakes blend in too much with the background for my taste, but the 3rd is awesome! I love the wood background and the snowflake is perfect!!

The third one is a stunning shot.


If Daylight is an all-powerful goddess, Flash is a Wanton
bitch who likes it rough. Dress her up in garishly coloured gels,
force her into all the darkest, dingiest places, bounce her off walls,
and she'll love you for it. - Bob Carlos Clarke
