    probably this one its a bit lighter and the colours seem more vivid

  • It’s amazing what applying a texture can do to an image and I would agree with you Philip.

    Perfect shot with or without the texture.. What is combine ZP?

  • Thanks Ang.
    CombineZP is a program for combining multiple images taken with different focal points and creating an image with a greater depth of field. It is totally free software unlike Helicon Focus which you have to pay for. They both do focus stacking. CombineZP seems to give you far more control and does a better job in the few images I have tried it on.

    Focus stacking is really useful when taking macro shots where dof is always a problem but it can also be used like here where the light level is low and there is motion in some parts so you can use a wide aperture and faster shutter speed and take multiple images which merge to effectively create a greater dof.

    Hope that explains it.

    No hablo espanol mi amigo LOL ..

    kidding it sounds like a pseudo HDr effect.. same idea any way.. off to google it :) :) Thank you!

  • Sorry if I confused you Ang :-) No it is NOT hdr as that combines images with different exposures, focus stacking combines images with different focus points.

    Same general idea in some respects as you compensate for camera limitations in software.
