It's just a year since I last photographed Oliver's catkins.
What is Oliver? See HERE.
This time I took 21 focus stacked photos to process using Zerine Stacker.
Why focus stacked? Close, macro, shots have very little depth of focus so each photo has a slightly different part of the plant which is in focus. Zerene Stacker does a fantastic job of picking out and putting together just those in focus parts to make one resulting photo.
Here are the photos from each end of the stack:
And the finished result using all 21 photos:
I also used Photoshop Elements 10 to darken some of the lighter background patches.
