Today was the first decent weather day in quite some time. I managed to get a few macro shots out of the back yard.
Above is a Hellebore cultivar called Spotted Lady, a 2005 perennial of the year.
This next shot is a focus stack of a tulip bloom that I produced manually in Photoshop CS6, using smart objects and layer masks. This is the first time that I recall using Photoshop's Large Document Format to save the original work.
This is a heavily processed shot, coming from three stacked camera raw shots. For added measure, I ran it through HDR Efex 2.
Both shots should be expanded to full-screen in order to be appreciated.
