With a softness like snow
And a sparkle in the mist

-----
Nikon D80 + Tamron 90mm F2.8 + tripod + IR remote. IR remote used to set off shutter due to hand potentially moving the camera. Exp +1.0. Manual focus. Mini orchids. Water added with straw. Glitter sprinkled on with tweezers. GIMP for post editing. Minor contrast and color tweaking with curves.

See my Facebook for more photos from the same shoot.

Back home for winter break! Hopefully I'll have more time for photos ;P

:snowing:

Nice exposure! That is a hard line to walk... white on white!

The glitter....????

Not something I would have thought of... I normally ABHOR glitter.... but this worked out superbly!

I'm assuming you didn't use a polarizing filter on this.... might have been interesting if you had.... But an EXCELLENT piece by any standards!!!

Haha thanks :highfive:

A polarizing filter was not used though I'm not sure how it would've helped in this shot :confused:

i love how at first you don't really know what you're looking at.

at first i thought i was some sort of rock that was smoking. then i read the description. then i had to look at it a bit more before i finally got the whole thing.

Oh ^^; That never occurred to me I guess since I took the photo :lol: I probably should add "Orchids" to the title then. Hehe ;P
