Dandelion Short Stack

I was looking for some photo subjects in the yard after a light rain and found this weathered dandelion with a few tiny raindrops on it. It was open on top so I could see more into the center. I shot a short series of focused images for what I wanted in focus, wide open at f/2.8 with a 150mm macro lens. Four images, aligned, stacked and combined in Photoshop. I used f/2.8 instead of stopping down more to get a clean looking background and used image stacking to get what I wanted in a limited focus range, while keeping the smooth looking background I wanted.
