This is a lovely set of flower images, even the toothwort has a certain appeal. Interesting that the toothwort has no chlorophyl. Nice set of images, well done. :D

I love your composite images. The background is so even shaded that the image looks like a single image, not like an image made of several different images put together. Well done on the technique. :D

I have no experience with stacking images so I'm always intrigued with the results. I don't think the lighting is too harsh. There are no totally blown-out highlights and I think the pattern of the bright areas helps pull the eye into the important areas of the image. I sometimes think that we go to...

This is quite a nice series of images. I especially like the in-your-face composition in the first image. The whole series is quite nice. Well done. :)

This is a beautiful image of a delicately patterned butterfly! I love the lace-like, green patterns of the hind wing. I can't find anything I would change about this image. Well done, carlos! :D

This is a very nice series of images. Number 1 and #3 are my favorites. I can see Rik wanting to do a full series of image stacks of this beetle! :D Well done, Mark.

It does look like it's fondling a crystal ball. Great capture. :D The image could be made a bit stronger if the white area at the bottom of the image was cropped off.

Now this is an "in-your-face" image. :) Has image stacking been used here or is this a single exposure? Well done however you managed this image.

What a beautiful bug and photo series. I am very fond of the first image. Maybe a bit of burning-in in the head and thorax area might reveal some more details in these areas. Well done. :)

This is a nice set of images for your first posts. I especially like images #2 and #3. You kept the whole butterfly wings in good focus by keeping the camera parallel to the wings. That is good technique. Well done. :)
