Wonderful result. I bet there are only a handful of people who even know you can do that sort of focus stacking in advance.

Fascinating. You don't really know what is going on so you stare at it for a bit nand then the leaves on the bottom left jump out. Very cool.

Hey, what have you done? The multi layer of different densities does a wonderful job on the inquisitive mind.

Water spiders used to intrigue me as a child. I like this shot. I like the composition and the reflection of the leaves, but I think the white highlighted reflections really distract.
