Artist's Description

This is another experiment that I made with 3 different images of the same thing.

There was a nice play of light on the spiderweb which was awfully difficult to catch with my Nikon D60 and Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 macro lens. There was a soft wind, and the web was moving constantly, making it almost impossible to catch at the exact moment when the light would hit the fine thread.

I decided to try another approach and make three shots with various focusing distances. One very sharp, another with a small bokeh and the last one very out of focus, with a larger bokeh.

Not exactly HDR because I’m playing with focus instead of light, and the process is a bit different too, without any tone mapping.

I just layered them in Photoshop CS4, using different blending modes like lighten, normal and hard light, plus some adjustment layers (levels and curves, as well as a warm filter).

Here are the three original shots:

I had used the same technique last December on 2 photos that I used to make a Christmas card:
