When things go well

Post by cactuspic »

This large stack of images went together about as perfectly could be hoped for. There are a few halos that I will remove, one ore two edges that I will hand layer in from the individual slice, and one or two small surfaces that I want to check and a few stray digital artifacts that I will have to remove. Nevertheless it preserves the delicate textures and form of this orchid. Often when I get greedy and strive for so much depth I get major problems. Hope you enjoy.

It's very pretty! And I agree, nicely free of the most common artifacts. But I wonder...

Just to the left of center, below the yellow and red marks, there is a large patch of featureless pink. It appears to be well within the total focus depth. Is this area really featureless, or do we have another case of low contrast detail getting lost in the haze?

This looks like it would be a tough subject to stack right from the beginning because of the low contrast in the different colors. Ilike the bowl shape :wink:

Thanks Doug, I was shocked actually. The only thing I can think is that my slices were particularly thin.

Rik, Thanks for your kind comments. I agree. That is one of about three small areas that I will have to look at the mush factor. But for an 81 slice stack, I thought it was remarkably clean.
