    Pink crab apple

    Here is an indoor shot of crab apple blossoms with a Canon 180 mm L Macro lens. Lighting was a single, small softbox, white mat board reflector and black foam core background. Too windy outside for macro shooting today. Hope you like it.

    That is a surprising DoF for a macro, Paul. Did you use Focus Stacking to accomplish that or was F/16 sufficient? Really well done!

    Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, this was a stack focusing using two shots. Stack focusing is my preferred technique whenever conditions will permit it. I almost always shoot from a tripod so that I can get critical focus. I use Helicon Focus software to combine the stack.

    Well done, Paul. Using an appropriate technique, as you have done here, can really help raise the bar for outstanding images.
