Rather like #2. but looks like you are using a ring light ? which is giving slightly ugly highlights

I like the second one as well. And I agree with Brian, the ring light is a bit hot. What a cool looking creature.

No, not a ring light, the surface is just extremely reflective. Technique I use is demonstrated here: https://www.youtube.co​m …continue=22&v=H​NkII80ihJM (external link)

The ring you are seeing is the reflection of my diffuser.

Noted! .... and thank you both for your feedback. I agree 100%, I wish I had spent more time on this subject.

What focus stacking software are you using? If it is your own, what technique does it use? How does it compare with others?

Perhaps slightly heretical but with very reflective subjects I often feel a large diffuser can be counter productive. Perhaps better to have a smaller diffuser that produces a small naturalistic specular reflection rather than a large reflection. Be interesting to see a trade-off on the two methods with a super reflective subject.
