Pear Blossoms

If all the trees on my property can be believed, spring has sprung and summer is on the way.  This macro is of some of the blossoms on our pear tree.  I don’t dislike winter, I actually love having 4 different seasons as it always gives you something to look forward to, and one of the things about spring is the explosion of life after laying dormant through the winter season.

This shot is actually my 2nd ever attempt at focus stacking and while I actually like this image, I have a lot to learn still.  If you look you will see a number of areas of the image that should be sharp, but are out of focus.  I am planning on doing a focus stacking tutorial as my skills develop but the first tip I can offer is take more pictures at different focal points.  If you think you have the entire range covered you probably don’t.  There is no penalty for having to much data to work with.
