Frank these are incredible photos. Do you take multiple images? Focus stack?

They are beautiful.
Hi, thank you for the nice comment! Yes, they are stacked, the first one is a stack from 50 images, the second one was stacked from 42 images. Evidently for longer stacks a tripod is used, and a remote control to avoid shakes. And the weather needs to be good, meaning completely wind-free. They are stacked in Helicon Focus, using either method A or C for those who are familiar with the program, afterwards they get a denoise bath from Topaz ; some further adjustments, mainly shadows/highlights and other minor corrections , are made in Capture One,

Many thanks Frank for your very detailed response.
I had one go at this when I got my EM5 2 and completely messed it up and gave it away. I really had no idea what settings to put the camera on re focus and I think results might have been good for a landscape from nothing to infinity, but my little subject was not in focus for many of the shots. That was tripod, not handhold.

I've seen enough to know it works and yours are the icing on the cake . Demonstrates the results possible so admirably.
I'll give it a crack again.
Again, thanks.

What I forgot to mention in my previous post: I always use manual focus for the stacks, try and focus on the point closest to the camera and then I give the focusing ring a light turn, so the bracketing starts just in front of the insect/ flower/...That makes sure everything is really in focus. By default I leave the number of images on 50, but sometimes it's brought up to 180 or even more, it depends on the subject, the distance to the subject, and also if some raynox magnifyer is used. I don't remember it exactly, but I'm pretty sure a raynox 250 was used on the first image, the second image looks to have been take with the 60 mm only. By the way, both images are a bit cropped...Good luck!
