    Great effort on the berry & crystals. I would have cropped out everything above the stem, distracting. A longer lens might have blurred more of the background to isolate the berry & crystals. Below is a video that I thought was interesting, learned a few more things myself

    Good eye - nice find. I'd suggest a vignette and a darkening of the background to concentrate the image on the single berry. If you use your hands to crop out the single berry (and blot out the bright background) you can see how it pops out the colour and definition. Beautiful ice crystals, you did well to keep them white and clean.

    Sure is colorful! Like the detail of the ice crystals. Would prefer a tighter crop that concentrates just on the main berry and those around it.

    Nicely taken crystals, pity you could not isolate the front berry with a nice smooth OOF background.
