Thanks.

How big are the subjects? Are they 1 inch across or 1/8th inch or ??

The nuance is breathtaking. Does this print as well as it looks on screen?

They are about an inch in size. They should print very well. They were shot with a Canon 1dsmk3, 65mm macro and 180 macro. Multiple shots were taken and the final is focus blended.

Beautiful!  Are these found formations?  Or did you "encourage" them?

They formed on my shed windows. I used ambient light and placed a piece of mat board behind the glass.

Lol, I've been hoping for cold weather here just so I can get some more shots. I should have a chance tomorrow morning, after that I don't know. It seems that temps below 10* Fahrenheit are best.

Here is a different lighting arrangement. Do you prefer the black background or this more high key image?

Tough call.  Do we have to choose?  : )  

The black background has tremendous first-view impact.  The high key reveals more translucency.  Maybe you can rig a graduated setup?

"Ambient light", you say.  Sheez. Mother nature is the best Art Director.

Stunning & spectacular vision of using your imagination to create something that 99% of  people pass by & miss !

GOOD SHOW, I can only wonder what these would like 'posterized' using different colors in gradient forms of blending !!

25 mega pixels ? what camera are you using ?  medium format ?

That has to be the most original composition & subject I have seen yet on the entire internet for 'creativity" !

Bravo !! standing, clapping & cheering !!
Wow, thanks for the encouragement Majik. I'm using a 1dsmk3. The 25 mp image was framed with the subject filling the image to the corners. The final image was rotated and placed on a larger canvas, hence the slightly larger image size.
Here is another that I just finished, it took me four hours to focus blend. When I saw it first it reminded me of Woody Woodpecker. That wouldn't make a good title so I went with Demon Grin.

I second (third? fourth?) the WOW factor! Beautiful.

Regarding the "which do we prefer?" question, I myself prefer the ambient white-lit background because to me it makes the subject look more like "ice" and so gives the entire project more of a winter feel. Yet I still enjoy the patterns of the black-ground pieces, just for their patterns and display, thus I find the whole project to be sensational.

Your creative ideas just go to show the nearly limitless possibilities for macro work, even when snowed-in in winter

Yes, IŽd choose the second, lighter version of background too. I think this from the feeling that when it comes to print, too much black paper tends to kill things a bit.
