Default Stacking Iron

Here's a picture of Iron Weed in my backyard.
It's 10 photo's stacked using CombineZP

Another great stacking shot, Clint. Color, details & sharpness are all perfectly.

Not a thistle - it grows here along roadsides. Mine is a bit on the puny side since it doesn't get much sun. They really attract lots of butterflies. Here's another look

I like both versions of the plant, really nice. Are you using a flash in the stack shot?

Clint,

very nice stackings of an interesting plant.

One day I have also to try the stacking technique, which equipment do you use for this?

Cheers,

Stefan

Saly - I used the Metz ringflash for the first one. The second is just a "standard" shot, no stacking.

Stefan - I use the Sony A55, a ring flash if there is not enough light, and a tripod.
I use CombineZP to stack the pictures (because it's freeware). I'm learning to use Lightroom 3 for some of the post processing.

#1 = VIVID!. Also reminds me of an hour I spent lying in a meadow and staring at flowers back in the early '70s after ingesting a dangerous and illegal substance.

I believe it would make a nice "Woodstock" poster. Could have been a good Jimi Hendrix album cover.
