Rain. Sunday. Plans down the drain.
So, my first attempt at focus stacking with photoshop and macro. I don't think this is too bad for a first try - four shots, each focused on different planes, merged to form one image. It's a wee bit slow - I can only work out how to do it one pair of images at a time - but it passes the hours while I wait for the rain to stop.
In case you are wondering - this ring rabbit is where S hangs here rings at night.
You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday2 and I Heart Macro.
Wow cool image. It does not look like it could even be four shots merged.. Well done..ReplyDelete
Okay ... Focus Stacking? Where are the stacks? And, how and why do you stack? This is the first time I have heard of it and you have tweaked my curiosity. All of that said, the Rabbit is awesome and how nice that S has such a cute place to put her rings. I never take my rings off so, no ring rabbit at my house. Very fun, Stewart and I hope you have time to explain ... I am really interested.ReplyDelete

Beautiful shot, merged images.
Well done, my compliments.
Best regards, Irma
I love what you have done however it is way over my head but very clever of you.ReplyDelete
Wow - nice job! Looks like one image instead of four.ReplyDelete
What a great capture for the day, Stewart! I love it! Hope you have a great new week as well!!ReplyDelete
I've never tried that.ReplyDelete
Good for you Stewart. I tried focus stacking on some mushrooms. I couldn't figure out the process. I haven't tried since. Maybe my photo program isn't correct for that task.ReplyDelete
wonderful depth gained from this Stewart! My newbie (the Fudge), has got a function for stacking on one of its (ridiculously) many dial options - am a long way off experimenting with it yet though! YAM xx
Great shot, try the CombineZP software, its free and very easy to use.ReplyDelete
I have never heard of focus stacking. One of these days, I'm going to have to break down and buy (or rent) PS for a while to see how I like it.ReplyDelete
The rabbit is so cool, quintessential silver. The rings look uncomfortable to sleep in, so it's nice S can trust her rings to the rabbit's care. I can't detect the stacking either.ReplyDelete
Cute little rabbit. I don't do much editing so this is way over my head.ReplyDelete
A very appealing shot Stewart and I applaud your patience and perseverance!ReplyDelete
Nice work! Maybe you stopped the rain, too?ReplyDelete
Wow what a wonderful effect Stewart! Thanks as always for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)ReplyDelete
A sharp, lovely shot! Don't understand about the photoshop image stacking...doesn't matter. Like the photo very much! :-)ReplyDelete
Your efforts resulted in a lovely, sharp macro.ReplyDelete
Now he's a cute little fellow!ReplyDelete
