Slit is from my Naturally Abstract collection and was composed at the Swan Lake Iris Gardens in Sumter, SC. It reminded me of an eye and pupil. Almost like Mother Nature created a flower that could look back at its admirers. I worked the camera around until the diameter of the eye nearly filled the frame while also keeping the pupil so that the left-most one third line split it. Doing so allowed the disc florets to create a fuzzy ring around the entire structure. I don't often use focus stacking because it can create more work (through artifacts that have to be cleaned up) than it is worth. But, this was one instance where it paid off.
