Description

Frosted porch glass on a frigid morning. The 1st image I attempted focus stacking / focal blending technique to provide sharpness throughout the image. Lenses have limitations on how close they can focus and the amount of the resulting image that will be sharp. By focusing on different parts of the image making several exposures, the resulting exposure "slices" can be stacked on top of one another, keeping the sharpest parts of each in the final image. The practice is pretty common now among landscape photographers and doesn't get involved in the reality vs. fantasy frey of post processing / "photoshopping." This is especially useful for macro shots like this or long zooms out on the sand dunes. While selective sharpness is effective in some instances, infinite sharpness is great for large prints.
