I do use the Zerene software for focus stacking and #1 & #3 pics are a composite of around 40 images at least

Wow. You sure fooled me. And yes, I agree, the limited parts in focus is better. But you did 40 exposures with focus stacking????? You have more patience than I can imagine. The increments must have been incredibly small - a real feat!!!

Most of the time I like to choose where to get a bokeh in a focus stacked pic as the bokeh seems to me more real and give a greater sense of depth.

This one is totally in focus using Zerene, but I really like the ones with some bokeh though:

Another orchid with bokeh carefully chosen in Zerene:
