Snowflakes
Lens: Kiron 105mm f/2.8 Camera: Pentax K-7 Photo Location: Michigan 

Here are a couple of shots of snowflakes, taken in fading evening light. I know the focus isn't perfectly sharp, especially on the the second image. If you have critiques or suggestions, please share. I am especially interested in suggestions on post-processing.



ISO 100, 4 sec, aperture unknown



ISO 400, 1/30 sec, aperture unknown

Very cool : )
Showed it to my 9 year old nephew and he thought it was so interesting and fascinating.

Wow that's remarkable, I've never seen snowflakes captured artistically before.

Now I feel like grabbing the camera and trying this for myself. What a pity it doesn't snow here. And it's summer. And temperature in the 30s...

I think that it's awesome that you can see individual snowflakes.

You know, you can send some of that weather this way. I'm tired of being cold.

Because we all know it's always summer and doesn't snow in B.C....

These are neat. I like the first one better because in the 2nd the big white out-of-focus area is less interesting than the textured corner in the first one. You could maybe crop on #2. I like the hint of a pile of snowflakes in #1, & composition-wise, the one really sharp flake is in a good spot, on a third-line.
