Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I used a CD disc as the surface to capture these snowflakes. I even toned- down the color saturation....

Interesting effect, its a little like staining samples before they go under the microscope gives more structure and 3D effect. Neat idea and great shot

Thanks Rodney, Art and Betsy!

Betsy, as you might know, I am not a fan of 'treatments,' I like a natural image so much better. So... that said, this still fits the parameters of 'natural,' since I did nothing digital to this photo other than crop.

LOL!

I'm not at all sure I like this garish look, though it was not digitally added. It's like an overdose of CANDY!

Thanks Eileen and Woodlander. I'm not sure I like the effect myself. I backed the color saturation way off, but the 'clustered' areas are so... dark.

It's fun to try new things, stretch our imaginations. It's a starting point for learning.
