Excellent Pic ... what I really enjoy about such photographs is the capture of a sky / sunset which will never , exactly , exist again ... you happened to be in the right place at the right time .
What a difference 24 hours makes … after a “bilateral Blepharoplasty” … and apparently it gets worse over the next few days …
Gabba Gabba, we accept you, one of us!Nah, too smart for that ... and it doesn't ... thankfully!
I re-read your post as I was looking at an article on Focus Stacking and understand what you were talking about now. I am looking at a Nikon D850 which has this feature, just have to talk nice to the wife now.A shallow depth of field is normal in macro photography. Something to do with physics (I'm a Geordie so obviously can't explain why).
A way around it is to use a tripod and take multiple exposures with your focus in different points and the magic of photoshop will combine the images to give you one with a greater depth of field.
You've done a decent job though.
My eyesight can'tAll DSLRs can focus stack. Even the cheapest. Just position your camera on a tripod, adjust your focus so that you're focusing on the near part of your image, and 'click'.
Then move the focus point a little further into your image 'click'.
Rinse and repeat 3, 4 or maybe even 5 times.
Stack them in photoshop.
My £60 Canon 450D could do it.
