    Beauty...

    Love everything about this image.

    Soft light, no shadows beautiful back ground etc.

    In my Opinion, going for a pano crop taking some canvas at the top making this even better.

    Thanks Krishna, it is indeed cropped (from a 4/3 format) but I tend to agree with you maybe a little more pano.

    Looks great. Nice detail and the colors are nice as well. The stacking looks pretty good it is only patchy under the wing there. Is the stacking done right in camera?

    Yes stacking in camera, you choose how many images up to 15, then choose the increments, set speed and aperture ISO as normal. It takes raw and jpeg. It then stacks the jpegs and also gives you a final composite jpeg. I have looked at that and then stacked the raw files to see if I could improve - so far other than colour/exposure I have usually done less well. I think there is a magical number of images and increments for the size of the subject, I am reading Olympus website/links to find some guidelines.
