Blue - Before and After Fun (for those who may be interested)

I thought my latest snowflake shot was a perfect candidate to show a before and after.

First I shot this image using three macro extension tubes and Canon 55-250 mm lens.

All of the editing was in Lightroom 4.   I did an ever so slight crop to center the flake, increased contrast, highlights, sharpening, and clarity on the flake itself.  Decreased sharpening, highlights, noise, clarity on the rest of the photo.  Played with the highlight and shadow split toning colours to get the blue I was happy with.  Added a very slight dark vignette.
