Succulent Green
Lens: SMC Pentax-M 50mm F1.7 Camera: Pentax K-30 Photo Location: Planet Omicron Persei 8 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F22

I really like these type Macro shots, but what always bugs me is that you can't get the whole plant in frame if you wanna get that close up. Does anyone know if there's a way to take multiple macro shots and stitch them together, sort of like a panorama, to create one large file of the whole plant in frame that still has amazing magnification? Anyway, here's the shot...

Thank you! Do you think it's too dark? Sometimes I look at it and think it's fine, other times I look and it seems kinda dark, but when I lighten it up any in post it just loses some of it's appeal... I wonder why?

Because when you lighten the shot up it loses sharpness and detail.

As long as there are contrasting lines that allow location information and you can stay a specific distance away for multiple shots, Even Microsoft ICE (free!) would probably work creating a panoramic macro image.

Adding brightness can and will cause some degree of color loss. That is a big concern to have since color rendition is a major component in Digital Photography. Very nice photo.

Okay that makes sense. It seems people like the shot, and I do too, so I might just be second guessing myself. Thanks for lookin'
