    Made from 2 exposures.

    This was quite obviously a case where it just wasn't possible to capture everything in one frame.

    I think the result is pretty decent, maybe not perfect, but at least decent.

    Here it is:

    Here are the two images that went into it:

    You used a program to merge it or you just do it manually with layers?

    I merged them in GIMP, using layers.

    Its not bad but I would like to see the phosphorescent glow more evident.

    I had a few different shots of the glowing vials (probably about 5 total, this one being the middle one). I found that there was a very fine line between 'too much' and 'just right'...lol.

    You just gave me an idea though... I think I can make the glow more evident by adding a third shot of the glowing vials (same exposure as the first one), but make it slightly defocused... I think that would give it a soft, glowing effect.

    I'll have to try that this weekend...
