It's been snowing all weekend and I have always wanted to try to get a macro of some snowflakes. These snowflakes are only about 1/8 inch across, up to maybe 1/4 inch for the largest one. It will probably get killed in voting as I maxed it at 100% crop so it isn't as sharp as it could be but oh well, I like it.

PP with PSPX includes clone out sensor spots, curves, brightness and contrast, resize and usm.

If possible I think I would have cropped closer around the cluster in the lower right.

Seems a bit dark for such a subject. It still has had to be some work to get this image.

I like this -- I would like to see the snowflakes stand out a bit more.
