Harry from Apex, NC, United States

nice use of every bit of frame space. I see your depth of field falls off a bit on the left. tough to avoid, but a more technically correct photo if sharp front to back. I have friends who spend inordinate amounts of time taking multiple shots of slightly different focus points the focus stacking them. Even with with nothing else to do, this sounds too tedious for me.
