When mouse is over photo you can see camera specs,
remove mouse from photo to see only photo.

     This photo is actually 5 different photos of 5 different snowflakes. All the photos had the lens at the same magnification, the flash at the same power, lens at same aperture, same shutter speed and then combined into one image. I did this so you can see the detailed difference between a flake or two or five 🙂
