The hospital owns me every other week and my week off is over, so the last stack of the week Sad
Just a long ant with wings and serious jaws Smile

Two questions if any one has time.
External power source for the Canon Twin Flash-MT-24EX? Or do people resort to rechargeable?
The two different stacking methods in Zerene-can someone give me a nutshell of the differences please.

I have no stats in this regard. Hopefully others have some pertinent info', or at least personal experience.

"PMax is . . . very good at finding and preserving detail even in low contrast or slightly blurred areas."

. . .

"DMap . . . does a better job keeping the original smoothness and colors, but it's not as good at finding and preserving detail."

source: DMap versus PMax

I'm a beginner like you, but so far I have acheived more convincing results with Pmax. Of course, one can judiciously combine the most convincing bits of both into a retouched photo.

great result with the above photo! Very Happy The horizontal approach is challenging, but the face to face eye level can have great visual impact!

Well thank you so very much Carmen.
I'm soon enough to combine the two methods in Zerene.
On my next off week we're off to a swampy dank and hopefully buggy lake far west of us. The venue there will be Osprey and live field macro where I don't think my studio stacking experience (or lack thereof) will have any benefits. Snakes there too Smile
