Not bad for a first attempt nataliaflejszar&Photo nataliaflejszar&Photo In a focus stacked image I would expect to see the whole image in focus. I think it would benefit from some exposure and sharpness tweaking as the image is a bit flat. How many shots in the stack?


Thanks @Bill Edwards for your opinion,if I remembe well, it was 6 pictures merget in this one :D. It\s very hard to do focus stracking well done picture :D.

Try, try and try again. try with more steps. to check the DOF depht of field, you can use an App: photographer's companion. it will be a good help to realize the steps in depandance of focal lenght, aperture and focusing distance to your model.
