The Hibiscus flowers in my sunroom are now starting to bloom profusely, so I thought I'd take a shot.
This is a stacked image of 5 seperate shots with a slightly different approach here. I attempted to mimmick what a T/S lens might do by focusing the central plane from front to back (ie: along the stamen) of the subject, but also leaving some areas around the periphery kinda soft as well. I think it's turned out relatively well, with an enhanced DOF, especially at this 1:2 macro distance.

Thanks Wolfie, it's been a while since I've heard from you. How's things with at your end back in the old country? I'm glad you liked this shot. Gimmee a shout sometime.

Kdlaz, Cheers, yeah I like clear too...I'm not much a fan of fuzzy/blurry, tiny DOF macro shots. I like to actually see the flower.
