Stacked image ?

By starliz
2nd attempt at this stacking technique Sad so don`t be to hard please.....

13 images taken at different focus points then used Helicon to merge them together.

Now I know this can be improved lol so any ideas are more than welcome.

Nothing done as you can see except resize for here.

I know it needs BG done and crop/clone to get rid of leaf but anything else to improve on anything else Smile especially the the sharpness/clarity would help,ta muchly.

As you know I am a beginner too so I cant advise on anything other than t looks a little too sharp.

Great first try though!

It all sounds so complicated I wouldn't even know where to begin so I think you are very brave. It is a really beautiful image with superbly delicate colour. I do agree with Luis it is a tiny bit sharp and the only other thing is I would love to see the whole flower. My first thought when I saw it was oh this is lovely, my fingers itched to pull it down a bit to see the top of the petals.

Great start Liz. After a while I got to realise that things were best kept simple. I know that my flower is complex in shape but it's just one flower and it fills the entire image.

I don't know this 'stacking' technique.
I wouldn't change very much, possibly only add a border, looks great to me.

Thank you Andrew.

Do you think maybe the flash was a bad idea picks out the tiny hairs to much ?

lol Di I know what you mean.

Simon thanks my first attempt was a dead moth lol only it turned out not to be as dead as I thought...... Sad I think your right tomorrow will try something different.

Many thanks Robert Smile

I agree with Di, I want to pull it down to see more of the stamens and petals, lovely image though but no idea how it's done it sounds complicated.

Have to say what you have done is beyond me it sound rather complicated for a simple mind like mine,But what you have achieved looks very good.The greens look stong and sharp but the flower could be a bit noisy, But I am not an expert, look forward to seeing more,
