Re: 1:1 macro with 120 and 45 extension tube - driftwood

You know there is something not quite right about this shot.  It is nice but at full pixel res on my monitor it is not super fine sharp at the 1:1 full level - like the tiny little grains of wood are ever so slightly blurred.

Maybe there was some tripod movement but it seemed rock solid and the 144 shots were of course electronic shutter.

Like an old macro pro told me one time, sometimes macro shots of objects at 1:1 are not rock solid sharp at the finest detail all the way through when you focus stack and you just have to try it again.

I was just thinking of how sharp that 200 year old Roman glass was.

But this wood grain is a softer less edge defined object so I'm not sure.

But GFX 100 files and focus stacking - this think should be razor sharp at full res peeking.
