Snowflake 8 - 100% crop

    Newer Older

    This photo was taken about a month after the others and was my last snowflake tried this winter. This was taken outside my window, i.e. I didn’t have to stand outside searching for it :-). But since the angle is very awkward therefore using tripod is impossible, so I have to shot handheld with iso800, f/8, 1/50s.

    This is a 100% crop version with Neat Image applied to remove the noise, and sharpen (with NI as well, applying usm in photoshop after NI looks horrible). I will certainly try again this winter (still a long time to go) and hopefully by then I can handle the Tamron (and my breathing so that I can shot at iso100) better.

    By the way, I am off to Singapore/Malaysia tomorrow, inspired by the photos from Ya ya and ScurvyMouse, I think I’m going to visiting Botanic Garden and Sentosa. Not that I haven’t been there before, but I never brought my eye with me, hopefully this time with my eye wide open (may be at f/1.0) I could see something that I haven’t seen before.
