    Guys,

    This is a really rough draft, but I wanted to hear some opinions before I went ahead and finished him up. That, and i'm giddy that this shit actually worked!!

    But needless to say, these insect shots are nowhere near straight out of camera. This one is a new twist on my other new technique...

    Tutorials to come later, gimme some feeback real quick.

    Nice detail, but not digging the crop

    Loves that nobody realizes this is a stitched shot.

    I had a feeling it was stitched. Just wanted to give you a little hell.

    I honestly thought the sensor was the exact outline of that very moth.

    You could probably make some decent money selling these to
    1) Moth people
    2) College/High school biology depts.
    3) Weirdos

    Would love to see one printed. I have done a few things like this before and loved the resolution.

    Looks very neat.
    With the right B&W conversion or PP you could print a 24" tall x 40 or whatever and sell some cool ones.

    my photo buddy is doing some hires stitching with buildings and perspectives. some streets, too. it's really cool.

    Threw him on a background so you guys would stop crying about it... My masking still isn't right, so I'll throw a really big one up when I get some time to make it presentable in any form but a 2000x700 jpeg...
