Thanks for the comments everyone - appreciated :)

Amazon - these are fairly high mag shots (2X to 4X) taken of raindrops hanging on things outside.All have some focus stacking for greater DOF (the last one is an 11 shot stack).
#1 is just some filter matting I have on top of a water barrel to keep the area damp to encourage springtails. The last 2 shots are of a largish pond filter brush (looks like a giant bottle brush) I leave out purposely to catch raindrops. #2 is the natural colour but you can change the hue to just about anything in PP as in #3. All shots are with diffused flash.

Nice colors. I wonder what your neighbors think? When you look around, do you ever see curtains just dropping back into place? :mrgreen:

When you do focus stacks, are these set up with a tripod (how do you stay in the same place... just shoot continuous and move back/forth a little?)?

Thanks for the comments :)

Taekwondo. No tripod, But I'm normally stabilising the camera somehow- for these shots I was resting the camera lens on my left hand which was on a fairly stable surface. I use single shot mode and just move the camera towards the subject as I take a series of shots. Taking about 1 shot a second.

Very "Other Worldy" Brian. Amazing stuff as usual. An 11 image stack that you took hand held, What?
That's just off the hook crazy good!
