    love the composition of the third.

    I love macro, but never tried focus stacking. How do you find patience (also, staedy subjects) for 23 focus stacked images?

    Well if that was a test then I'm looking forward to seeing your real shots, because these ones are very nice. :2thumbs:

    The E-M1 takes 10 images/sek so the subject doesnt have to stay still for long :)

    I have Serenestacker, but i used PS for these.

    So you're slowly turning the focus ring while shooting bursts?

    I as well would be very interested in the technical process's you used for the focus stacking. Care to share ?

    Awesome photos by the way.
