On a Snowflake's Level
by Ashley Zywusko (mygreenbird007) FIRST POTD!
Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
Practiced my super-macro technique which basically entails attaching a 50mm to my zoom lens (in this case, 28-105mm) with a reversing ring. Taken during a Pennsylvania flurry.

WOW! I Didnt realize you could actually capture snow flakes. GREAT job with this macro! Congrats

Thanks! Due to the questions I've received on this, I wanted to add that this is a snowflake that had fallen on our old convertible's soft top. The texture in the background is cloth. The macro technique generates an extremely shallow depth of field (mm to a fraction of a mm), so not all of the snowflake is in focus. I tried to hold the camera as flush to it as possible to get as much in focus as I could.

Terrific piece of work and clever experiment to capture the snowflake! You did a superb job with an excellent backdrop to enrich it even more! Congratulations on your POTD!

It is simply amazing to me that you were able to capture so well a single snowflake. It looks like a jewel with its glow and lovely intricate patterns. Congratulations, Ashley, on your 1st POTD on this site and welcome!
