I’m pleased to announce that Betterphoto.com has selected one of my images as second place winner in their Details and Macro contest. The photo titled “Hashi Oki”, which is Japanese for “chopstick rest”, can be seen on their website here . The chopsticks and chopstick rest were purchased at the local annual Japanese festival. This was a 13 image focus stack using Helicon Focus software to merge the images. It was shot using a Canon speedlight in a softbox against white foam core.
