    Here’s a stack I took using Arsenal to control the capture. Four images, stacked in PS.Tweaked with Luminar. 39mm, F9, 1/60, ISO 100, LED Ring flash.

    Nice Jay, my only feed back would have been to hang a dark sheet a bit behind it to hide the rooms contents.

    Thanks Robert. On my laptop, I can’t see any background, time for a calibration I guess.

      Yeah I think so , I can clearly make out your cupboards, counters, stove, a towel hanging from the stove door handle, stuff sitting on the counters.

    Lovely image Jay 🙂

    Agree with Robert about the background which is quite distracting.

    I found the calibration settings for my monitor. YIKES, I see what you mean. Thanks for the heads up.

    Does this look better?

    I was going to suggest for you to just paint the background black but you fixed it yourself.  Beautiful orchid.

    Much better.  The update make the edges of the petals on the far flower appear much sharper (I was going to mention they looked ‘soft’ and maybe you could have taken one more shot).

    Only comment now is the very bottom flower… it’s a little bit darker on the inside than the top version.  Possibly introduce some light into there.

    Beautiful orchid, I was going to mention the background, but you’ve sorted it now.
