    First try at focus/DOF stacking (Rose part deux)

    And all i can say is Wow!
    This was never possible with 35mm, it is such a cool technique!

    My first attempt, and yes plenty of visual faults...
    I did the stack outside and obviously there was plenty of movement.
    (just notice the halos)

    But even so omg the possibilities

    Interesting. I'd seen this discussed in a book I read on the OpenGL API, but I've never actually seen real images stitched together with the technique. Looks good!

    Joe, its very cool.... it allows you to use a wide aperture for IQ (image quality?) and still end up with an awesome depth of field.
    But each layer needs to stack just so or you get the faults. (I dont know all the proper nomenclature yet LOL)

    This one was a stack of 10 separate pics and there was an obvious breeze blowing.... I tried to limit any movement of the flower/camera... but I could visually see some motion despite my efforts

    Thanks Liz, I agree :-)

    Still worked out well. Seen this?

    Plenoptic cameras - they capture multiple DOFs in a single exposure. Very clever stuff, and an interesting read.

    That is an awesome shot. Next you need to hook it up to a telescope and get some nebula pics !
