This is an amazing image. If you don't mind my asking, what lens did you use and did you use an extension tube?

Very nice image. I was wondering if you could share the technical data. What lens and f/stop, I never seem to get that DOF. Congrats - Duane

Nobi and Duane,

thanks for your encouraging comments. Duane, I used a Canon 5d, 100mm lens, settings were 200 iso, 2 sec at F29. the camera was on a tripod and I may have used an extension thingie but I don't remember and the settings didn't record that. I processed it in PS CS2 and tweeked the color, etc. Hope that helps.
