Macro with a Coolpix 995

Post by fotopol »

I have recently installed Helicon Pro on my computer, my first attempt was to test old images intially treated with Combinez. For my last test, i've used 6 images originally made with a Coolpix 995 at the focal of 32 mm. To increase magnification of the subject, a 50mm objective was retro-mounted on the Nikon 995 zoom.

The basis of the enclosed image is about 15 mm.

Original image 3 mp

Upper image : Helicon without corrections
Lower image : little corrections with Adobe Photoshop elements 3.0 contrast , gamma and accentuation gives more impact.


unfortunately french speaking :oops:

Great shot! What is it?

How many images have you combined?

This image vas made first for aesthetical choice. Ican't exactly determine the name of this subject.

I will submit this image to a friend botanist to determine precisely if possible. Now, I can only say it's a the detail of a wild flower's inflorescence.

Excuse me for the inaccuracy of this answer.

To generate the end image with Helicon, i've used 6 shots.
