Still holding on to my 75-300mm specifically for this purpose. Reversed the 50mm f/1.8 to the end of it the other day, went outside and captured some of the newly fallen snowflakes on the railing of my front porch. This is about 6:1 magnification.

Nice. Any chance of a focus stack attempt?

No, my flash is on high power for these (at f/25, 1/80, ISO 3200) so I can't take several in row, and usually I lose a snowflake after 1-3 attempts at it, this day in particular as we had 10 mph wind with gusts of about 30 mph. Some snowflakes would be there, I would click the shutter, and when I looked at the picture I had taken there would be no snowflake as it would get blown away by the wind.

I've got a 75-300 and a 50 1.8, I'd love to see your setup. Maybe PM me?
Nice shot.

very impressive! I assume you're hand holding the 50mm in reverse?

No, using a 58mm to 52mm male-male macro ring.
