Another experiment. With CameraPixels, I did a 30-shot focus stack, this time waiting until the flowers were moving slightly in the breeze. Then I combined them in Affinity Photo, using New Stack instead of New Focus Merge and turning alignment off, hoping to get a sort of impressionist result. With a little fiddling in the layer stack options, I got this:

Some more tweaks using other adjustments in Affinity Photo (including Median Blur), produced this:

And finally I gave it a watercolor texture (in either iColorama or BeCasso -- don't remember which) and lightened it a bit more in Photos to get this (which I probably could have done solely in iColorama, but it was a learning experience):

I actually think the first image is best.

Nice colours, I prefer this version I think.
Me also. I think the red is a real plus, and (to me, at least) the texture on the covering of the ball doesn't look as good in b/w.
