I have to admit that it wasn't my own idea. I was almost 100% inspired by https://youtu.be/axnVZxSQZgo - this video . I wanted to try it, and the result was so good that I had to share it :-)

The next dandelion seed was my own idea, but of course inspired by other black reflection photos. Photographed on a black glass plate with black background.

Maybe not your own idea, but well executed.
I like the one on the black background as well.

Same here, that's probably why I started shooting a lot more handheld macro when I got a digital camera (binning > 90% of the shots is no problem then), in the film days virtually all my macro was done from a tripod, carefully focussed and at a relatively small aperture. Only real problem then is the wind .
But even today I still use my tripod quite frequently for macro (even in good light), it's amazing how quick you move a little closer or further throwing your whole subject out of focus.

On the previous page I https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=133559&PID=1611968&title=macros-or-semi-macros-8#1611968 - posted a focus-stacked macro of a tulip.

Picolay is a program that also does stacking and interestingly can generate stereo images.

It does this by generating a depth map from all the stacked images

https://flic.kr/p/2j24SJZ">

Here, yellow is closer to the camera, blue furthest, and green indicates locations between the extremes.

The Photoshop stack of this image is

https://flic.kr/p/2iYTHfU">

(Sony A7 III / 10+26mm extension tube / Sony Zeiss 24-70 F4; I used Imaging Remote to tether the camera to a laptop and the b8stack add-on to automate the step focus and taking process.)

When Picolay creates the stack and depth map, stereo pairs can be created - this one is a parallel L-R pair

https://flic.kr/p/2j27wfe">

And the picture I posted earlier, reprocessed makes

https://flic.kr/p/2j27wmm">

That's a good focus stack!   For the stereograms, I used to be able to 'get' them but I'm struggling here. I think it takes a bit of practice to get the eyes to drift and focus properly...

Thanks, Mikey. I can't do them without a viewing aid, and I use something called OWL, which is promoted by Brian May's London Stereoscopic Company. Picolay will also output red/cyan anaglyphs as well as other pairings and even wigglegrams.

Impressive Howard.
The lens seems to give a good addition to what you 'macroed' before.
What's your opinion on the lens (so far)?
I particularly like the delicate last one, but the rainy leaves are fine too.

Thanks!

I’ll try to do a proper lens review in due course, but my initial impressions are very positive. Hitherto I have used standard lenses on extension tubes or an adapted Tamron SP 90mm Macro from the Minolta MD era. So to have AF, modern lens quality and build, and integration with the FE body is quite a leap forward for me.

The Sigma lens is very good value - about half the price of the Sony 90mm Macro and about the same price as the Sony 50mm. Reviews suggest the shorter Sony lens has some drawbacks so this seemed the right direction to go in.

The potential to go to 1:1 is appealing and my next test will be to see how it performs tethered and in focus stacking.
