Garden Jewels

During past weekend I planned to try out a combination of tele lens and macro extension tubes. With this combination the depth of field is still very shallow but it is not one or two centimeters away from the front lens but comfortable ten to twenty centimeters (approximately) away. And while we were going to our cottage I had great chance to try it out.
Even though the garden seemed to be without flowers all I had to do was to take a closer look and suddenly tha garden was full of colourful flowers. Daisies, speedwells, blue and pink forget-me-not, heather are all tiny flowers that are like jewels hidden in grass.

Here I tried focus stacking technique – focusing on different parts of the main subject and then in post processing combining them together to create image where the main subject is fully focused and the rest is not.

One more attempt at focus stacking:
