snow flake
so i tried several times to get a decent pic of a snow flake and this is the best that i got. For some reason it just dont look right, i tried different settings and one didnt seem any better then the next. Any help would be great as im still trying to learn my macro lens. Thanks

Looks pretty good to me but just wonder if there is some motion blur shooting at 1/40th sec and at fairly high magnification. Would normally use flash for a shot like this using the flash duration to give a high effective shutter speed.

i had the camera on a tripod and i was using a remote shutter cable. i have tossed around the idea of a flash but just not sure how mush i would use it.
