    This is my first steps in the macro world. I borrowed a 100 Tokina macro lens form my friend @lionking and I played with it this morning.
    This image is stacked from 5 images, unfortunately manually (D850 needs AF lens to allow Focus shifting).

    Wow!, this is great Levy! What great macro work. It looks like you may need to be investing in a Macro lens that has AF. With the cool ability to Focus Shift that the D850 has, using AF lenses is a real help.

    Great work here on composition and stacking, i would be tempted to clean those pollen dots as well as some whites one, and maybe darken the blues in the FG a bit...

    Very nice. Too bad the tip is a tad out of focus. I sure wish my Sony would do auto focus stacking!
