My wife, Gail, has for a few years cultivated a very large hibiscus. This image is of one of its blooms.  This image is a 10-image focus stack combined in Canon DPP and then processed in Lightroom and Photoshop with the R5 and adapted EF 100mm F 2.8 macro at F 18, 1/125 ISO 6400 on tripod.

An arresting combination the red and white parts of the flower center.

A bit surreal-it looks like one could walk right into this "huge" flower. I like the shadow. Well done!

Awesome. This looks like something from Star Trek. I have a similar image I never shared because it looked too fake. I’m glad you shared this.
