I knew I'd find someone else with a fascination with snowflakes if I searched DA. ^_^ Can I ask where you took the pic? I bought myself a new camera for my birthday and thought I could finally take a picture from my car window (I've seen snowflakes there pretty much every winter) - but when I finally tried, I realized I couldn't get the camera to stop focusing on everything outside the window. >_> The only one I could get was some on my little apartment balcony, and I couldn't get very close.
Hey! Try to have the lowest ISO speed... It might be this... Let's say ISO 800 makes really grainy pictures to me, so I usually use ISO 200 or 100.. It's not good to use digital zoom either... It doesn't make nice photos... And too much of crop can make a bad quality too. About grain that's about it... thank u for the fav and i hope i helped^^
