    I made this image at my Home in UT. Cactus which gifted to my wife has some flowers which I chose to photograph using my Macro lens.


    Nikon D850, Sigma 150 Macro, 12mm +20mm Extension tubes
    1/25 sec; f/5.6; ISO 1250
    Manual; Matrix metering
    11 images stacked in photoshop.

    Background is from First Image.

    Hope you like it.

    Let me know your thoughts and comments.

    Thanks

    Very nice colourful image. I like the background but can't understand why, if this is a stacked image , so many parts of the flower are out of focus. Where you using a tripod and stacking head or where you hand holding?

    Camera was on Tripod. I did not use any Stacking head. I manually changed the focus and hence the issue I guess. Stacking was done based on Focusing on the edge of the flower.

    very nice. I like the background also. Agree with a few petals being out of focus. with manual focusing, it is hard to get everything in focus. Nice colors and the important parts of the flower are in good focus.

    Krishna I like the selective focus it makes for an interesting image - good thinking! If you still have the master stacked file maybe consider unmasking the centre of the flower.
    I don't know if you did anything different when posting but the text after the first line i.e. after "Macro lens" is black on grey and very difficult to read.
