Kim picked this strawberry from the yard today and I wanted to take a few closeups of it. I took a series of shots at different focal depths with the intent of stacking them in Photoshop CS4. Unfortunately, Photoshop completely failed on me with this image. I had no choice but to checkout Helicon Focus. It is with this software that I created the image above.

This is one of the images in the stack. I'm very pleased with the job that Helicon did.

I also took one with the MP-E for an extreme closeup. Once again, I'm amazed by how interesting things on the extreme small scale can look.

Technical Specs: Canon 5D2, 180 macro & 65 MP-E.
