This is a blend of three different images at various focal points. There were more than three images taken for a focus stack that would have rendered a totally sharp flower. I selected only three for the effect I wanted. At an aperture of F8 and this magnification DOF is very shallow. A 100mm manual focus macro lens was used on a OMD-M1. Fill light was added from a silver refector. Photoshop CC was used to blend the images.
