More focus stacking. There's nothing like starting out with an easy subject....not. This time aperture open, more images (60) as per advice and using a borrowed rail. Again all manner of blurry bits round the edges courtesy of photoshop's stacking programme, impossible to remove with such complicated, fine edges. So instead I have darkened the background right out. The fluffy bits in the middle are, well, fluffy bits.Then there's the issue of retaining detail in a white object......phew. Maybe next time I should try a nice easy egg or something. Perhaps photoshop and I would cope better Smile
More detail visible if viewed large.

Indeed a tricky subject with movement in the feather even inside.
I've done stacking with feathers myself - even got an area award in a competition, then
another judge at our club said it was soft!!!
Lovely work though.

Another good effort. I think the subject matter is a little to much for stacking. Flatish subjects are better to start with as they need less shots.
