This photo was taken with focus stacking feature inside Nikon Z7 with 24-70mm f2.8 at 50mm, iso100, f8, Aperture priority. Total shots were 40 and only selected 10 for stacking. LR and PS were used, but not much editing

Nice photo but what I'm most impressed about is that you took 40 shots and selected 10 for stacking! Quite a feat!!!!   Posted: 06/14/2022 20:02:17

All the shots were taken automatically. It moves the focus from the front to the back. Out of 40, 10 looks with focus somewhere inside the flowers. 30 of them were completely out of focus. Thanks for feedback.   Posted: 06/15/2022 16:59:27

It is a lovely image! The colors are harmonious; everything is sharp; there is enough variation in the size of the cactus barrels to keep it interesting; the background is not the least distracting, and the lighting is gorgeous (although I am by no means a lighting expert). I can easily see this hanging on a wall.   Posted: 06/15/2022 16:30:28

I am happy with this overall focus. I had some focus stacks, but the merged shot had areas out of focus. Thanks for the feedback.   Posted: 06/15/2022 17:01:00

Good lighting. The flowers and cactus barrels complement each other colourwise. The fallen flower makes the shot for me. Good stuff!   Posted: 06/22/2022 05:19:12
