    I didn't use a DSLR for this.
    Pentax Optio W60, it has a great macro feature that allows you to get within 1cm of your subject.

    This is an acorn top embedded in the ice on my driveway...taken during an ice storm.
    [nice feature about the Pentax is that it is waterproof]:mrgreen:

    Neat shot! I like the almost abstract feeling the ice background gives to the acorn top. One suggestion might be to take a tiny amount off of the left side and the top and get the acorn top centered perfectly, in a bulls-eye sort of fashion; I might be wrong, but I think a dead-center effect would increase the abstract, simple nature of this photo.
