Needed a flower for a floral tribute - walked down the street, macro on camera and tripod in hand, and found this beautiful Gerbera daisy in a neighbor's yard. This is a focus stack image - first time I ever tried that. Pretty slick :)

Just mentioned in another post that I've just started thinking about doing this sort of setup again. Been a long time. You did it well.

I looked at this and my first thought was how incredibly sharp it is, Nikki, in addition to the spectacular colors. Now I see why - I have never tried this technique...yet...but I have heard so much about it. Eager to try it out. A gorgeous floral Finalist - Congrats again!
