    I took this one the other day, last week after it snowed. Tell me what you think.

    It' s just the overall impression. That leaf is sharp but the snow makes my eyes go round and round...

    frost and snow are most often among the most difficult textures to capture as they are both extrememly multi faceted and thus reflect light in an extremely complex manner.

    might i suggest a tighter crop?

    It certainly looks interesting. Would perhaps have come out better if you'd placed the leaf off centre. Also, it looks like you've taken the picture looking straight down, which makes it look flat. Taking it at an angle would give you some perspective, especially if you chose an aperture to narrow the depth of field so the snow furthest from the camera was out of focus with the leaf and the foreground snow sharp.

    I almost wish you had taken the shot at a much deeper angle. I mean, if it was possible to give the snowflakes some depth, something like this:
