Supa Fly

Here is the second of my soon to be infamous fly shots. They are definitely disgusting little buggers but contain so much detail just waiting to be exposed by the lens. This ones another stack (though of just two images in this case) to get a bit more depth of field.

Hope you all had wonderful weekends and wish you all a productive week.

Terrific shot! Great composition. Just love the colours - fly is pretty decent too smile
Stan: The colours and sharpness are a tad oversaturated for my taste but its hard adjusting my PP for SC. I tend to under or overshoot
Should I stay or Should I go ? Stunning colours and a likey for me.

Superb!

OK, please tell me how you did this.
Stan: The exposure settings are available. The camera was tripod mounted and shot with bounced hotshoe mounted flash for fill. This means I metered for the scene and only used the flash to freeze motion (there is some even with a tripod!) and bring out subtle details. I had to take two shots at different depths of field without the fly moving and stacked these using CombineZM software. Voila!
is that what they call RedEye?

Nice work, intereseting the softare you mentioned, will take a look at it, just out of curiousity

wicked detail man!

am glad you now refer to your shots as 'soon to be infamous' was wondering when you'd stop with the 'humbility' grin

was it cos you're such a darn perfectionist, or bcos you'd not be shooting with the 300d tongue
Stan: The infamous bit was referring to the subject matter and I'm not a perfectionist smile By the way its D300 not 300d :p
