Focus stacking (day 12)

Today I played around with taking macro shots and getting CombineZP to stack them to increase the depth of field (each shot is focused at a different part of the scene, a more detailed explanation of focus stacking can be found on wikipedia).
I combined 6 shots with different focus into 1. Looking at the result it looks like it would probably have worked better if I used more shots, maybe 10 or more. For this technique I also tried to work with macro bellow and my new tripod, something I have not had much experiences with. There is definitely room for improvement but the technique looks promising and a tripod does make macro a lot easier than shooting handheld.

This is a picture of my setup
