Common Dandelion - anthers, Heesch, Netherlands 2.5:1 and 3.5:1 macro shots of the anthers of a Common Dandelion, idea by Christine. I also tried a 5:1 macro but it failed quite hard. The difficulty in this case is the lack of dynamic range. Everything is a highlight, even more so with light added. With only highlights, stacking software struggles to discover sharp areas.<br />
