Bob, these are really great! Do you use focus-stacking on these in post?

.....hi Bob, thanks

No focus stacking.

These files were shot single-entity JPG with simple PP adj when needed for exposure adj, a bit of sharpening and cropping.

I use COREL ASPro v1 which does not have the E-M1 ORF code so until (whenever) I will do jpg and so far it works well enough, but I miss being able to do RAW.

Hey Bob: Did you see that Corel has just announced ASPro Version 2?
They say it has a bunch of new camera RAW profiles. The upgrade cost is $49.99. Here is the link.

OK, what is focus stacking? First time I heard that term.

Taking multiple images of a subject while refocusing for each shot to make sharp sections of the image front to back, then you run the files through a program that combines into one image that's in sharp focus front to back. You can have extended depth of focus at any aperture using the process, but it can be tedious and you need a relatively controllable environment so all the images look exactly the same, except for the point of focus. This is the first article I ever read on the subject..

Thanks Greg, have read that article and I can live without focus stacking.

I played with it one time, with some flowers I purchased for Katherine, but I took them home first to give it a try

I don't have the constitution for it. I have a really nice tripod for when I need one, but I don't go hauling it around all that often and the way the wind blows around here, the chances of getting to try it outdoors might amount to one or two visits to the Dallas Arboretum or Fort Worth Botanical Gardens a year when conditions are perfect, and most of those type days I have to be at work.

Default 35mm on EM1 follow up

These were just a test in the backyard using the 35mm on the EM1. I processed using Aperture 3.5.1, usually adjusting definition, exposure, sharpen, and sometimes vibrancy.
