Coffee-table shots, every one. Professionally done.

Hello,... Those are some great pictures. I'm still learning how to use my 450D, so I need you to explain much more about how you do 11 images and "Focus Stack".

One of my biggest disappointment in the XSi is that Canon removed the "Focus Bracketing" function. Can't wait to hear what a "Focus Stack" is all about.

Did you know that the last two shots are of a delicious mushroom called the "Shaggy Mane?" Makes me hungry!!!

I'm kind of late getting to view your post Karl but, wanted to also welcome you to the forum and add my comment of well done!

Simon, since know one else has answered... stacking is used to gain extended DOF in macro photos. in some cases DOF can be as little as 1 or 2 mm especially with a small aperture. So, to get a shot with everything in focus, you use a tripod and take a number of shots at differing focal adjustments where different parts of the subject are in focus. then using a software program on the computer, you combine the shots to use the sharpest section of each shot to make one photo where everything is focused that you want to be focused. Similar to HDR only for focal range instead of dynamic range. I hope that explains it, if not, I'll go into more detail for you, or let Karl do it, he seems to be pretty darn good at it!

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...
