21/52 Wild Pansy II

By sherlob    
Another experiment with using my new focus bracketing extension tube. The same species of flower as the last image, but this time a slightly cleaner composition and a narrower DOF. I'm behind in my processing as a consequence of decorating the house and running into licence problems with the software used to composite the focus stack. I know excuses, excuses... I have last 2 weeks images still to process - landscapes - its been nice to be able to get out again.

I think I am slowly getting somewhere with my new Helicon FB Extension tube. From a careful review of this image I have noted that the increments for altering the focus are tiny and whilst this may suit particular apertures at particularly close focus distances, for flowers they are likely to be far too small. So my next experiments will be to override the suggested step increment for particular apertures and set a larger step manually. Fingers crossed!

Nicely done Adam, perhaps a wee bit central in the frame but the bg is nicely oof, colour and detail on the Pansy really nice.
Lovely image Adam
