Snowflake, take two

Same snowflake as the one before, except this has a flash to give some highlights to the shape. Click below for a photo merged from four parts to get the full snowflake visible:

The exif data is wrong because I forgot to change the lens parameters on the camera. Focal lenght was 55mm (not 200mm) and aperture was maybe around f/11-f/16.

 

Nikon D2H + Micro-Nikkor 55mm/2.8 + bellows unit + extension rings

 

Lighting: LED flashlight below the snowflake for backlighting and an SB-600 on a TTL cord from the side for white highlights.
