Frozen hearts

Frozen hearts, snowflake macro photo

(1024 * 768)


Maybe this is "8 March snowflake" or even "Valentine's day snowflake", but actually it was captured in january 2015. :) I processed this crystal for my girlfriend Lucy (Facebook profile).

This is small crystal (hexagonal plate), around 1 mm in diameter. I used only 3 identical shots (5 other shots from serie was discarded because of poor lighting). I've tried my best to remove noise as possible and preserve all significant details of this crystal.
