Fujifilm S5pro, Sigma 150mm f2.8, Raynox DCR-150

Each image is stacked from 8-16 one second exposures in natural light at f11-f16.

Please let me know which one works best for you!

Hard to choose, but I think I'd rank them in the order you have presented them, top best.

These are beautiful natural light field stacks. Thanks for getting up early enough to catch these critters so quiet!

Oh WOW, Morfa, these are just beautiful !!!!!! What are the little bubble things on the top of his head (not his eyes, but a bit back from there), or is it dew, and Rik mentioned you got up early. How did he know that?

Cheers

Absolutely beautiful.

Stacked from images taken in the natural environment, superb reflections, dewdrops on the body, vivid natural colours: all elements that your images have, and I've been aspiring to for a looong time. Maybe one day...

I was guessing, from the dewdrops and earlier discussion about the fly.

Thank you for your comments!

These are early morning shots too so yes, that is dew! But perhaps it's worth mentioning that these guys have one pair of eyes quite far back on their heads and I see now that these eyes are quite easily mistaken for dew drops!

Save File As, open in IrfanView, Image > Information... > EXIF info*, and it shows up as DateTimeOriginal - 2009:08:25 06:56:39. In Photoshop CS, it's File > File Info > Advanced > EXIF Properties, showing as DateTimeOriginal: 2009-08-25T06:56:39-08:00.

It would be a mistake, however, to read anything into that "-08:00". Normally that would indicate a time zone offset from GMT, but the EXIF DateTimeOriginal tag doesn't actually contain a time zone offset. So what Photoshop is showing is morfa's local time, merged with my time zone. If I change my computer's time zone to be -06:00 instead of -08:00 and relaunch Photoshop, then it reports 2009-08-25T06:56:39-06:00! (Muttering is heard in the distance: "Programmers...")
