Challenge: Macro III (Classic Editing*)
Camera: Olympus C-4000Z
Location: Toronto
Date: Dec 21, 2003
Aperture: f-2.8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/200 sec.
Galleries: Nature, Macro
Date Uploaded: Dec 21, 2003

Taken with my Olympus camera in the super macro mode. Camera was on a tiny tripod (4 inches tall). Lens was about half an inch from the ground.

I was holding my breath as I was taking this photo. The flakes were melting really fast.

In photoshop, converted to grey scale and then to duotone to get the bluish tones. Cloned out dust and sharpened.

Pretty, with nice repetitive patterns that create visual interest. Though this isn't a "high impact" shot for me, it is appealing.

This is really nice. I'm curious how you got so close? Microscope? I really like the blue background. Helps it give a feel of cold. Good luck with the challenge!
