This is a Dahlia taken indoors using window light and is a 25 shot focus stack.

Love the color, the light, the fade. Beautiful shot. I am curious as to why 25 and not a few less with different aperture choice? Either way, you sure have it down.

Hi Gary. Thanks very much for the kind words! I often shoot at wide apertures when I focus stack in order to get a softer background more abruptly at the end of the stack. The increased separation gives a bit more depth to the picture. 25 shots is on the high end for me, I average around 12 shots when I focus stack.

stellar and beautiful.
