Indeed a focus stack of 10 photos (limit for advanced editing). Couldn't quite get the last few spikes in focus within these 10 (and didn't want to stop down further)

It's very fun to use, but stains EVERYTHING that it touches. Extreme care required (though fortunately non-toxic).

The lens is a little bit of a specialty item. It's a reverse-mounted El-Nikkor 50mm f2.8, an enlarging lens, mounted on a bellows.

Seriously brilliant stuff. It has an aura of mystique to it....an "other-worldliness", almost. Both the image, and the concept really attract one's eye. No wonder it's got an average above 8!

Well this is some excellent photography. My only nitpick is the right side background is just ever so slightly brighter but that is a very small nitpick. I expect this will take the blue. Nice work 10.

Looks like a winner to me.

Perfect. If I was a betting man I would say the background matches the color of the ribbon this should get.
