This shot was taken in the Bishops Palace Gardens adjoining Chichester Cathedral. The Gardens are quite extensive but the area I was in is called the walled garden and a part of it called the wild garden having wild flowers. Although Photoshop can align images to be used for for focus stacking it helps if the flower does not blow about too much. The walls in this part of the Gardens help a lot in cutting out the wind.
For visitors not in the know the Gardens are tucked away behind buildings. Access can be gained along a passage from the Cathedral Cloisters or along Canon Lane which has an entrance though an archway off South Street. The Gardens are free entrance.The image is formed from a Stack of 16 images all at slightly different focus and stacked in Photoshop. The principal edits were Topaz Clarity, Topaz Denoise and levels /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;}
