Very nice image against a clean BG in nice light.  My only recommendation would be to include the part of the stalk just below the frame where the bud is attached to maintain unity. Overall, you’re doing great with the stacking.

Hi

A nice image that places the image elements nicely in the frame. I like it

Regarding suggestions - personally I often feel stacked image have a little bit of a flat look if you get my drift. Perhaps introducing a little side lighting would help add some defining shadows. How this works with stacking though - no idea lol


All the best
Matthew

Matthew,  Thanks for the input.  I was also concerned about the lighting and I'm still trying to work that out.  I got an additional light source coming and I hope that will solve the problem.  My other concern about this image is that it is too "clinical" in that there's nothing else in the frame, which is probably not realistic.  I have some ideas on that, and hopefully it will work.
