And a very high resolution [6-frame] macromosaic can be seen here:

All the best,

Hi Greg, pardon my ignorance, but what's a macro mosaic? :?:

I think, with 658x1024 max resolution we cannot really appreciate the work that you've done, cybermystic :?

A macromosaic is a mosaic formed from macro images.

If it gets past validation you will be able to see a much higher resolution image on Fotolia.

Greg

I realise that, but what are the advantages - does it allow you to have more areas in focus across a larger picture? Is it at all comparable to HDR in that you're taking the best bits of a number of different shots and combining them to make something bigger and better?

By zooming in so the object more than fills the field of view (so you have to form a mosaic to get the whole object imaged) you create a very high resolution image that can be printed out at a large size.
