I used some manual Focus Stacking on this one, since I was shooting at around 25mm with f/9.5 and this didn't give me a sharp frame from front to back. And for a really sharp photo I have to stick to appertures between f/8 and f/11. Focus stacking is the solution: three different focused shots where used here, layered in photoshop and manually masked together, which wasn't that easy with the bushes in the fg.
Many techniques I show in my start2finish tutorial were used in this shot. There's a long section about focus stacking in the tutorial for those interested
