Your shots are awesome, and the reversed lens technique, as well as focus stacking is something I have never tried, but I am curious. Were these shot in Digitalis's beard?
LoL! Thanks! Yeah, it certainly looks the part doesn't it? Usually I shoot flakes "in-situ", looking for narrow ledges where the snow accumulates and there might be a flake "sticking out" from the rest of the snow, but this time I chose to "collect" flakes using a couple of fluffy tuques and then brought them under the porch to shoot... It's also interesting to see that fabric at such a small scale.

Haha, yeah. Almost makes you wonder how that fabric stays together.

SMC Pentax M Macro 1:4/100 on handheld K-S2

These are from my first attempt at photography of frozen soap bubbles. I used a combination of clear liquid dish detergent, Karo light corn syrup and water.
Good advice I received was:
• be patient, as many bubbles break immediately upon touching a surface (such as the snowy railing of our house's deck)
• choose a time when there's no wind
• select a very cold day, as it speeds the bubble's freezing
• dress appropriately
• protect the camera and lens against bursting bubbles (such as by having it behind your back or at least at your side).
For two of the images, conversion to b/w was in Silver Efex Pro from the Nik Collection.
The other image received a little work in Viveza 2 from the Nik Collection.

Young Roadrunner up in a Mesquite. M75-150 and is heavily PPed and cropped but i still like it considering how much light was available at the time.

I have shot with the M50/1.4 extensively, and I can say that is completely atypical - I'd suggest there is a fault with your lens I'm afraid!
I'm actually quite happy that can't be the average performance of it!
I'll give it a very good inspection then, although I didn't see anything amiss last time.

Quite amusing that I get lucky with all the russian lenses that are known to be a bit of a gamble and then buy a M50/1.4 that seems off hah!
To "celebrate" the announcement of the K1 I got myself a second copy of the 50/1.4 on ebay.. Thought I might better just get it now instead of waiting longer, just in case the prices increase now..

Very excited to see how this one is!

Also pondering about the 35/2..

Nice shot, and I agree - the lens is a gem!
