    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Bamboo Weave.

    This is the top cover of a bamboo steamer. I tried a different procedure to do the focus stacking. I used Rob Marshall's recommendation to use the script method available in Photoshop CS5. This was made using 6 images stacked. The actual width of the bamboo material is about 1/2 inch. Thank you very much for viewing.

    A successful example of focus-stacking. You make me envious. I haven't ever tried stacking, but the idea intrigues me. Do you think it can be done in Photoshop Elements? And if so, how?

    I have no idea on what are the tools available with Photoshop Elements, Wayne. However, there are some freeware I think available on the net that can help you do focus stacking if it is not available in Elements. Thank you very much for viewing my work.

    A VERY sharp image, Willie. Nice!

    By the way, when are you going to turn the helmet around so that we can see your face?

    Thanks, Frank. I am glad that I am slowly learning some of the stuff can be helpful to me in the future once I get a dedicated macro lens. I wonder when would that be? As for the avatar, I like it that way... unobtrusive, not wanting too much attention but watching... listening... learning.

    WHAT!!! You don't have a macro lens and you are getting close up images that superb! Now I am envious. Are you really doing all that with just an extension ring? Impressive, to say the least.

    Most definitely yes, it's all done using my 50mm lens coupled to a PK-13 extension ring. No tricks, just plain 2 gadgets and a lot of patience trying to see what I'm shooting with the dark viewfinder.

    That is a great shot. Been on this site for a few months and expect nothing less from you. I have no idea what havoc you could reek with a true macro lens!

    Well, to be honest, probably not much more - it would just be easier for Willie

    It is the photographer, not the kit, that makes an image and a good one will usually "find a way" - just needs an understanding of the principles, a bit of ingenuity and a lot of patience!

    If I were wearing one, I'd take my hat off to you Willie, well done
