This is a two exposure focus stack, with some color adjustments through a mask made with TK Actions, and some burning in. I am finally feeling more confident in Photoshop, after viewing and beginning to study Sean Bagshaw’s Photoshop Essentials video course, and Tony Kuyper’s TK7 actions. I was experimenting, made one image at f22 (Canon APS-C), then two at f6.3, and focus stacked them, then had to clone out ghosts, then used an infinite color mask made with TK7 actions, then some burning in. I wanted to practice my new photoshop skills and compare the difference between focus stacking at larger apertures, and the diffraction at small apertures.
