We've been having tulips in the house lately, my favorite flower.  So I've spent some time doing stack focus pictures with varying degrees of success and failure and frustration.  Images with a greater range of color seems easier to do than ones with little color variation.  Thus the one you are about to see worked while stacking images of a yellow rose has not been successful so far. I started with a series of images taken with the camera on a tripod to insure easier stacking.  Here is an example of that series:

As you can see, the stem is in focus but not much else.  The remaining images all had different focus points.  By stacking, aligning, and blending the images, and then cropping, I was able to arrive at this:

Hope you enjoy it!
