 I recently had a go at focus stacking using a free program called CombineZP
http://combinezp.software.informer.com/download/
Attached are some images; 2 are from the set of 12 that were taken showing the near focus image and the farthest focus image. The were 10 more in between.
The 3rd image is the final result.
Larger versions of 2 stacked images can be seen here:

The raw files were, of course, processed and converted in QU.

I cannot see on their website that it says anything about focus stacking.
Combine CZ is free but one I also tried is http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-focus/

What time was there between the shots, the sea scape appears to have lost a lot of birds.

I wish it was the sea - it's a reservoir near home.
There was a total of 16 seconds between first and last shot (12 altogether). There were no more than 8 birds in the scene but the stacked image shows multiple birds because they were moving as the exposures were made.

Thanks,
 
I have not tried focus stacking, in fact never thought it would be useful for landscapes.

I live and learn but often forget.
