I've been playing with this software today for the first time and I'm very impressed. (Unfortunately, it can't deal with motion caused by wind!)
This pic is composed of four separate shots from about 18 inches to near infinity, and while you won't see it in this little Jpeg, the foreground and the outhouse are both sharp - and all points in between. Any blur in this composite is from the wind. I'll do this again with no wind tomorrow. Each exposure was 1/1000 sec at f8, iso 320.
