one of the Cyanus is not single color but has blue and white petals .. I did a tad of an experimental edit with layers ...

Frank, I like the simple esthetics  of your cup image. That Fuji is back home


yes, the little Fuji is special. It inspires me to shoot differently... Thank you

This and your combination with PS stacking seems to work.
Did you ever try Zerene for this, or has PS slowly caught up with the dedicated stack s/w?

I finally managed to "retrieve" the D500 a friend had loaned ... after a weekend spent on a remote island, I am full of appreciation for this camera (again). Before leaving, I captured this mixture of Saxifraga granulata and Armeria maritima using the 18-140 Nikkor.

Thanks Colin,
I tried zerene a few years ago,  conditions were different, I used 36mp raw files, and a 150mm macro therefore a shallower dof, also focus was adjusted manually using the d800 live view. The processing was slow and had many odd artifacts, I did not continue my efforts

This time, with the x-t3, the experience was much smoother, and ps did a good job with little effort. I noticed that even with jpgs , and only 20 images the file grew to 1.5gb while doing the stack, my machine has only 8gb , I doubt I can tackle much deeper stacks in ps.

The printed newspaper is a dying species, some say.

The price is skyrocketing. We started with 500€/year 10 years ago, now it is 900€/year for same. I feel they used all the money to build expensive internet sites where they give away the content the subscribers pay for. That is why they have to raise the price for my paper. People online feel they can have it all for free.

I subscribed to the Guardian online additionally for only 75€/year, roughly the price of my paper online per quarter ...

I do not understand all of this.
