    Re: My macro shots

    Hello 'post2cd', welcome to the forums! You haven't asked for any specific critique, so I won't offer any, BUT, I did look at both the shots you uploaded, and had a question for you. This one is labeled 'Stack 4', and the one of the watch is labeled 'Stack 2'.

    Have you stacked 4 images to create this macro? Or is it just a gallery title that you use on Flickr?

    I'm just curious, I've been playing with stacking a little tonight myself, and it seems to me that this one is still a little soft in the top right where the threading of the screw meets the edge of the frame. Either way, nice shots. It's a lot of fun focus stacking, if you have the patience that is! I think I'm going to go to the grocery store tomorrow, and see if they have anything exciting to really practice with!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, these are stacked images and the folder they are saved is named as stack. You see, using a dedicated macro lense has its disadvantage,shooting with its maximum aperture at 3.5 every thing is blurred except a small point of focus. Better to use a focusing rail.
