I like this vegetable (un chou Romanesco): Mother Nature gave it this nice "fractal structur"
I took this picture last winter...7 images "focus stacked"...and edited the result B/W for its graphic look.
I would like the image gets more "3D-feeling".
Is there something which could be done now afterwards in post-treatment?

…I think your question is what all good photography is about…being able to create depth from a flat image…I am here to learn how others respond to this question…I hope you don’t mind…?

Hello SkyKing! Welcome to this school...feel free to sit down here on my side.
I wonder what tip will come now.
I already took some effort into the lighting and have no idea how to do it even better.
Wait and see what "magic" bring the masters here.

I hope someone will come up with a real solution. I tried adding a mild vignette. It darkened the light corners. I felt like it added depth in the the corners receded and the center seemed to pop out a bit.

Ah yes? I would like to have a look on this post-treated result. Problem is for me to replicate...PT is for me complicate, demands to much specific skills and how know: I dont like to do it because I'm too bad at it

Cook the broccoli, serve it with garlic butter, and shoot it with the steam rising off the florets with a black background.

What Gene said.

But present it with a good Pouilly-Fuisse, of course.

I would like to see a version with only the front grouping stacked, letting the parts of the image in the background be out of focus. Or perhaps only the ones at the medium distances in focus. Limiting the depth of field can be an important tool for generating the 3D look you are seeking...

Creative idea! The look "Steam Clock" should please a lot of people in Gastown...shouldn't it?

Thank You. Clever alternativ!
Instead of trying to get everything in focus, the solution could be to play finely with more or less slight blur.
Why didn't I have this idea?
I hope such vegetables are still avalaible in summer (not sure: I shot mine last november)
Only after the shoot I will cook it "à la Gene 51" and after have a glas Pouilly-Fuissé (Santé Cany143!)

The photo gained enough volume given by the contrast of the shadows but the
stacking destroyed the natural 3D effect of blurring/lose of detail by distance.
Putting back/enhancing that contrast of sharpness/detail can make it look to have more depth.

Very nice. I thought it was some kind of underwater structure.
