Incredible detail, wonderful texture, very clean. Central composition works less well for me. I would either soften or more likely eliminate the bud on the right. This has a making of a great photo.

Thank you so much. And you're absolutely right about eliminating the bud on the right. I've been thinking of that more than once, but never got to do it. Now I might finally do something about it. Thanks again, constructive critique is always welcome :)

EXCELLENT! Several years ago, I tried to use Helicon Focus with my wildflower macros, but it drove me insane. I am glad to see that you got good results with it.

Thanks very much. Helicon Focus has probably improved since you last tried it, so perhaps update the program and have another go :)

You are having so much fun with the stacking S/W, aren't you?
The image is so sharp and clean! :thumbsup:
Are these different colors of Columbines all in your garden?

Sure, I still find it very interesting to play with.

Yes, they're all in my garden. Popping up in certain places every year :)
