I've had this one sitting on my computer for about 3 weeks, because I wanted to go back and redo it with a tripod and a larger F-stop and no flash. Only, a similar morning never came along, and now the leaves are gone from the berberis bushes. So, for this year at least, this is what I have in the way of berberis bushes covered in frost.
Treatment: Crop, Contrast +10, Saturation +10, USM and resize.

Why did you leave it for so long? the result is fantastic! The colors are beautiful, the ice is incredibly detailed and sharp and I love the soft vague background. well done!

Great shot Bente - couldn’t be done better. Excellent colours and DOF. The reflections from the flash only “turn on" the ice-crystals.

Very nice colors and shapes, the black blurred background is perfect, I'd crop the right side to make the shot simetric.

It is wonderful! the colors are nice and the frosted leaves remind me of candies... I would crop a little to the right, but it is very good as is as well!

I love the texture of the crystals overlaying those beautiful autumn colours.
Ps you can get the same effect with egg white a paint brush and sugar crystals, :0))))#

Beautiful. Looks like a sugar flower on a cake. Using the flash has given the leaves that lovely sparkly, frosty look. I like it.
