|"Frosted Leaf Galaxy" by Masahiro Miyasaka|
The incredible depth-of-focus in this photo was accomplished by focusing on the stars (at infinity) with an exposure of f/2.8 for 48 seconds (ISO 4000), THEN stopping down the aperture to f/22 and shifting the focus to the leaf--with the shutter is still open! While in this macro focus position, he lighted the leaf with an LED for a predetermined amount of time, and then closed the shutter. Masahiro used a Sigma 15mm F2.8 EX DG Fisheye lens (Nikon mount, with a conversion to Canon) on his Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera body. A more complete description is found on this Flickr page. A similar technique was used in this photo:
