a stump on Guye (1 of 1)
a stump on Guye (1 of 1)

Base of a bleached snag up  on the approach to the  summit  of  Guye. I "focus stacked" about 8 images (the  first focused on the nearest bit of plant, and then each successive one focused a bit  further  into  the  scene; used Helicon SW to  blend them) and one more  image shot one stop  darker for  the  sky. I did it  mostly for learning  and  practice, and  to  be frank there are a few halo problems that  I don't think  are worth trying to eliminate. And it's a but busy. But I still sorta like how  it looks on the  screen. And I learned a few things which  may help  next time...

I would never go to all that trouble, but hey I don't consider myself a pro photog. That said, I think this is a perfectly beautiful image Jim ... and thank you for telling us the process.

I enjoy the process, and these techniques (both focus stacking  and exposure blending) can really open up  opportunities for some dramatic photos, so for me they're worth learning and practicing.

Even  with the lens fully  stopped  down, this photo would  not have worked as a single shot due both to the  extreme depth of field required and the very high dynamic range (beyond even the best sensor available as of today). I wouldn't rate this photo as really showing off why it's  worth it - as noted it was a bit more of a "practice shot" to exercise some  technique I've been  learning lately. But with exposure blending in particular, it can  yield nice results with very dramatic lighting that in  the past I've typically enjoyed in person but have seen as not worth trying  to capture with a  camera. This shot took a few extra minutes in the field (versus a single exposure shot) and then perhaps a half hour of processing  time at home - somewhat slow since I'm still doing  a fair bit  of trial-and-error-and-repeat as I learn how to exposure  blend tough cases such as trees against sky.

Nice shots, guys and gals!

Here's a persistent tank that retained water long after its many neighbors had long since dried out, in Snow Canyon State Park near St George, UT
