    Thanks Mr B

    I got lucky and the sequence of shots was from about 20 feet off the deck all the way down to the deck and swimming away.......nothing like a high frame rate and a big buffer LOL

    Neat. Stacked and edited ?
    I'm clueless about that process but I sort of suspected that's how you get an image like that.
    Sort of "magical". Thanks.

    AB this is one frame of a series of frames
    Editing consists of cropping and a bit of sharpening

    When I hear of stacking, I think of focus stacking
    Macro and extreme close up shooters sometime will shoot several frames moving the focus point so that by the time they finish, they can use software to “stack” the individual frames and end up with the entire subject in focus rather than have depth of field fall off that normally occurs

    A friend told me that Jack Dykinga (Pulitzer Prize winning photographer) recently took like a 100 shots of a subject with a super high resolution camera and then used software to put it together

    ( Shameless name dropping……feel free to skip this…..my friend and I met and photographed with Dykinga at Bosque del Apache a couple of years ago……Dykinga is the real deal and I always am amazed at some the stuff he comes up with)

    I was impressed….not only for the number of shots but that he had the computer power to run that number of shots

    Random stuff…….
    back in the old days when I freelanced graphic work there were a couple of Photoshop filters that when I needed a coffee break, you ran them because you knew it would be about 5 minutes for it to run

    Got it.
    Keep it simple I'm a newbie.
    My camera does that maybe I'll try it. It'll shoot fast until the buffer is loaded. Thanks for explaining

    To focus stack….speed is not needed….precision is the key

    good luck

    search engine focus stacking software…..it is kind of a cousin to astrophotography using multiple frames

    I know that I actually loaded a stacking app and ..got lost. I was thinking I'd do astrophotography until I figured out that learning to do it poorly would take me the rest of my life. I'm sorry about not knowing much. Maybe some will rub off.
    Keep sharing and answering questions.
    Thanks
