Spiderweb Snowflake

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Spiderweb Snowflake
Spiderweb Snowflake
An earlier macro of a frosted spiderweb, this design was achieved using Harry's Filters- "Quad Flip".
I applied Harry's "color Compress", and then adjusted the hue for the purple.
Slight unsharp mask to finish.

Thanks so much Zoran, Joy and Dawn! I appreciate your comments! Zoran, the symmetry comes from using the "Quad-Flip" filter, which "mirrors" an image into four quadrants - flipping them up, down, right and left.
Hope this answers your question.
