Hello Laszlo!
It has been a long time, hope you are well.
This photo seems to be tanken out of my gallery, same fungi, same environment :)
It looks very much like Hypoloma fasciculare, maybe I was mistaken with my ident on Fasciculare... hypolomas are very tricky.

as a moderator for TN I am sorry but your horse classes as domesticated as I think you will see from this excerpt for the book of Wiki.
The Konik is a Polish horse breed descending from very hardy horses from the Biłgoraj region. These horses had a predominantly dun colour, but also black and chestnut horses were present in the population.[4] Some researchers claim these foundation animals were hybrids with wild horse breeding that had been sold to farmers by the zoo in Zamość in 1806, which were bred to local domesticated draft horses.[4] However, genetic studies now contradict the view that the Konik is a surviving form of Eastern European wild horse, commonly called the tarpan, nor is it closely related to them. The Konik shares mitochondrial DNA with many other domesticated horse breeds and their Y-DNA is nearly identical.[5][6]

During World War I, these horses were important transport animals for Russian and German troops and were called Panje horses.[4] In 1923, Tadeusz Vetulani, an agriculturalist from Kraków, started to get interested in the Panje horses, a landrace of Biłgoraj and coined the name “Konik” (Polish for “small horse”), which is now established as the common name for the breed. During the 1920s, several public and private studs were created to conserve this animal.[4] In 1936, Vetulani opened a Konik reserve in the Białowieża Forest. He was convinced that if horses were exposed to natural conditions, they would redevelop their original phenotype.[4] While Vetulani's experiments are well-known and widely publicized,[7][8] his stock actually had only a minor influence on the modern Konik population.[4] However, World War II marked the end of Vetulani’s "breeding back" project. His stock was moved to Popielno, where they continued to live in semiferal conditions. Popielno became the breed’s main stud during the 1950s, but the herd was also preserved by buying animals from Germany.[4]

Between the two world wars, the German brothers Heinz and Lutz Heck crossed stallions of Przewalski's horse with mares of the Konik horse, as well as mares of other breeds such as the Dülmen pony, Gotland pony, and the Icelandic horse, to create a breed resembling their understanding of the tarpan phenotype. The result is called the Heck Horse.[9] Other breeders crossed Koniks with Anglo Arabians or the Thoroughbred to increase their quality as a riding horse.[4]

I think it is Acadia...not Arcadia.

This is a nice "wild vista" I've never seen much besides people, tour boats, and more people at Acadia!

Hi Pierre,
A nice moody shot. I like it how you can still see the lake but are blocked by the fog to see any further. Exposure due the fog is well controlled. Any photos from closer or at the lake?

Hi Emin,
What a moment you've captured. I love how this little finch posed for you on this beautiful rock. It even looks like he's smiling at you.

Rock surface has a few OE spots and could be toned down. The soft gray BG with its green sports is wonderful

Hi Peter,
A nice photo with such great clarity and detail. The central composition is slightly bothering but the subject and its pose make up for it. I like it that you didn't add much contrast and kept it overall soft.

I see you have posted over 400 photos but never wrote a critique. Part of the experience of TN is to write critique so that you can learn from others and others can learn from you. Just 'dumping' photos on this site is not appreciated.

Hi Abhinav,
So luck to have a yard that attracts such beautiful birds. I whish I could say the same of my urban garden.

The photo is really beautiful with an acceptable central composition, a nice depth with a wonderful soft BG. One could say that the oof leaves in the FG are a little intrusive, but they can also be seen and creating some depth. They do claim some attention away from the bird though and by cropping most away the photo does become more pleasant to look at.

Hi Laurens,
Een bijzonder mooie foto met erg mooi detail in de kop en de plant. De achtergrond laat nog net mooi genoeg detail zien zodat je een idee krijgt van de omgeving. Ik denk wel dat de achterkant van het Lantaarntje net buiten de focus viel. Maar misschien ook wel logisch als je zo dicht bij bent.

Hi Ram,
You know, I will always focus on landscapes, so glad to find one on your first page. The view of this magnificent mountains is stunning. I am sure hiking near to them is even more impressive then seeing them on a photo. The exposure is well controlled with good detail in both highlights and shadows.

Hi Anne,
I learned something today. I did not know that such a tulip would be a endemic version. But hey, being from Holland, we only see the cultivated version.

A lovely presentation of which the softness I enjoy most. True colors and good clarity.

Hi Foozi,
A nice clean presentation taken at a great moment. Looks to me the eye isn't as sharp as it could be. I like the addition of the spider webbing and the lovely soft tones of the BG.
