A seasonal stack.
6 sets of 16 images to make this image plus a Corel Painter artwork text image plus Corel PaintShopPro borders.
The camera was set to Focus Bracket 16 images at 6 different shutter speeds.
The first exposure from each set was HDR in LightRoom to create a new image.
The second exposure from each set was HDR in LightRoom to create a new image.
The third exposure from each set was HDR in LightRoom to create a new image.
Etc
These new HDR images were combined in Helicon Focus.
The "A" combination was selected as the best method
The text and borders were then added.

May your Christmas be joyous and may the gift you receive be Peace for all.

This is very well done, thank you for sharing the Christmas spirit! I like your choice on the amount of sharpness versus bokeh, perfect.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you.
Yes it was a planned experiment. I was very pleased with the outcome and will be using the technique again with real plants.
I used an f/1.2 lens fully open to achieve the bokeh and selective focus bracketing of the camera.
