Excuse for those that hate boring comparisons/tests, but I would like to share this one showing a simple comparison of one shot at f/16 vs. 3 shots focus stacked at f/8.
If you need the whole flower in focus, but no distracting background, focus stacking can be a solution.


Single shot vs. 3 focus stacked shots by labecoaves, on Flickr


D7000 + PN-11 tube + Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-S EDIF + tripod. ISO 160, 1 single shot at f/15 1/50s; 3 shots at f/8 1/250s. Of course this will need still subjects. The flower had just 1cm diameter.

Today I went out for another fireworks, this time done by professionals:

D3s, 28/3.5PC at f/11, 10 seconds at ISO200

vanity, pure vanity ;-) a quick grab with a 50/2Ai on a D700, ISO 12800, 1/20sec


WOW
The fireworks shot is beautiful.



I'll say that again! Spectacular! Reminds me of old Life Magazine photos.

Jose, thank you for the comparison. It's an excellent procedure when shooting subjects like this flower. This one turned out beautifully!

A few more from the D600 + 24mm f/2.8 AI combo. Pretty much all shot at f/11 using the tripod. Took these a mile or two north of Sonoita AZ. There was 4" of snow over the whole area about 8 hours before this.






John, I like this very much.

Winnipeg and the Red River is host to the longest skating trail in the world.

I walked along the river for a while yesterday on my way back from the store and caught a couple people (and a pooch) enjoying the mild (-20c with wind) weather.

Monty these 2 are very clever - I think I prefer the one with you out of focus - but I don't know.
