    Hi Karl, nice shot! Smaller-sensor cameras like the S3 are great at taking photos like this. You can also try "focus-stacking" a few different images to get all of the tips of the snowflake in focus, a technique that I use on all my snowflake images. I love the background too, looks like ice!

    Lovely focus control, and the purity of the crystalline ice is fantastic against the darker blues and more vivid tones.

    The little things in life really do matter. So cool that your eyes scan a snowflake one day and a silicon wafer another. Which is more amazing, a snow crystal or a silicon crystal? I'll go for snow every time even though I couldn't be typing or seeing this picture without the help of silicon.

    Superb capture of this microscopic one of a kind snow crystal ~ the secret inner beauty of this tanslucent tiny ice star shines gloriously on its soft blanket of blue.
