Alpine Flowers - Experiments in Focus Stacking etc

I spent all of Wednesday on a hillside on Hahnenkamm photographing the various species using different techniques to try to get an image sharp throughout but standing away from the background. These included Focus stacking (first Common Spotted Orchid, Moss seed heads), artificial backdrop (second orchid etc), aperture control to get as wide depth of field as possible with light conditions (third orchid etc) and long lens (fourth etc; 200mm equivalent). All methods had their successes and failures (more of the latter than the former). The Hare Bells and Butterwort are both stacked images. Also shown White Orchid and Bearded Bell flower.
