Thanks for a great program, that I have just started using. This is one of my first images made with HeliconFocus. Some cleaning up in Photoshop. Ca. 35 exposures in this crop.
Canon 350D, MP-E 65 mm.

I constantly see threads arguing against post-processing or 'manipulating' images on various photo forums.
But, without something like HeliconFocus one would NEVER be able to communicate the true beauty and complexity of an insects' eyes. I love this product!

IMHO, postprocessing is not only OK, it's a necessity.
It is the modern equivalent of old days darkroom work. Much more pleasant, though.

HOW DID YOU GET IT TO STAY STILL!!??
Was it alive?
For many pictures, post processing only helps, but still, I admire it when someone gets a stunning image in-camera. It indicates a better photographer than just a good computer guy.

What a stunning image. How did you light the subject?

Thank you for the nice words, and sorry for the (very) late reply.
Ariel: the fly was mounted on a mono-rail/focus-rail.
Fred: I used a light tent (White paper), and a MT-24EX.

Really? I am using pretty much the same equipment and so far I am getting too much flash refelection in the eyes. Your crane fly has such a 3-D look like it was illuminated from all around. I am going to try to post an image for critique. Perhaps you would take a look at it and comment.
Thanks very much.
