Some Newfoundland Wildflowers
I am just back from a vacation in Newfoundland.
Here are some wildflower images from Gros Morne National Park, taken by trails at Western Brook Pond and Baker's Brook Falls:
Images 2-5 are stacked from shots 3 mm apart, using a tripod and macro rails. Shots were taken every time the wind died down and the main subject was in the same position in the frame. Several attempts at using this technique failed because of relative motion between different parts of the image. I achieved greatest success when the in-focus parts of the image moved as a unit. The stacked images were taken with my homemade 600 mm closeup lens but stacking also works well with telemacro. The images were stacked with Zerene Stacker.
Single-shot images 6-8 were shot at f/8 to maximize depth-of-field, using either the 600 mm closeup lens or telemacro:
