Hallo Peter,
Very good macro ..
Excellent composition, fantastic lighting and very good sharpness. .
Best wishes,

Lieber Peter,

ahhh, jetzt verstehe ich Deinen Enthusiasmus für die Fokus- Stack- Technik. Das Resultat verblüfft offensichtlich nicht nur mich, sondern auch höhere Instanzen ! Das ist ein sehr nützlicher Beitrag zu TN.

Herzlich grüsst Dich und Ina, Dieter
