Moth HDR Macro

Nikon D90 / 50mm 1.8D Lens reverse-mounted on extension tubes


- F/11 for added DOF, and no flash fired

- HDR from a single RAW (Lightroom to Photomatix)

- High-pass sharpen in Gimp

- Denoise and color correction in DxO


This photo is uncropped. It is of a dead moth found in a lamp, resting on broccoli. The magnification factor is about 1:1, from what I can figure. No focus-stacking used... This is a single shot.
