I knew I wanted to use snow as a background, because a surprise storm came on the first day of the contest. So I wandered around the farm looking for something to use as a subject. I just noticed a piece of hay seed sitting on a bale, so I thought, "what the heck." I hope ya'll enjoy the finished product.

Nice detail, composition works, border is a 'bit much' in my opinion.

The border is a bit heavy for such a delicate subject, but it's beautifully exposed and focused. Lovely details on the snow crystals and the seed.

Very nice one... but that big black frame is too harsh for my taste.

I think this is my favorite of the bunch. I like the choice of a natural background. I like the fact that I can see the texture in the snow clearly. I like the black line at the top. I like the little seed head as a subject, its placement, and its perfect definition.
