The contrast of the fuzzy back sprout makes the sharpness of the front one look ever more impressive! Love your technique!

Thanks very much, Cecily. I'm quite satisfied with this shot too :)

Lovely! I see you're using extension tubes, no wonder you stack so many!
KeldBach's avatar
Thanks. Yes, the closer you get, the more layers you need. You'll soon find out :D

I don't have extention tubes, just a macro lens and maybe a closeup lens so it won't be as detailed as what you do, but I suspect I'll like the results just fine.

Any lens will do, Barbara. I'm planning to try both wide-angle and telephoto lenses in a near future. You'll be surprised by the results and it's not hard to do :)
barcon53's avatar
That should be an interesting experiment. I'll be interested to see the results. :)

The wide-angle lens is quite good for stacking. You only need about three shots to get everything in focus from front to back. The telephoto lens, however, was a little disappointing for this purpose. I get much better details using a macro lens. You can see one of my experiments (using a 150mm) here [link]

I have a 90mm macro lens, do you think that is OK?
KeldBach's avatar
That one would be perfect, Barbara :)
