Wonderful!

How do you get such a clean black background?

How do you decide how many exposures to stack?

(I've not tried focus stacking myself, but I might have to give it ago sometime.)

I love the rich red tonalities…The composition is great too.
Bravo.

so in general one needs to take into consideration the depth of field at the scale size that is being considered to determine a step size. this shot was only at 0.5x or so and I have to admit that the step size here was somewhat arbitrary based on my intuition and I think it could have been smaller. clearly it didn't hurt using Zerene stacker.
