Very interesting post Kirsten. It nearly looks like a beehive. Great note supporting the photo as well.

Kirsten, Also would state that this is an interesting looking fungi with a great supporting note. You might try manually jumping up that F-stop for more depth on your next one. Thanx for posting!

Nice work Kirsten, I agree with Howard about the Fstop, you need a bigger DOF for these close ups. Also I think the focus could be a bit sharper, it is very diffcult to get these fungi to focus - was the exposure really 30 seconds? If so that is why it's not so sharp.
Good work and good note.

That's fascinating... what a great eye to capture and compose a photo around something many would miss. Love the detail and textures.

You did an excellent job here. You have learnt your post processing from a pro - I am still trying to finf half the things you mentioned in your technique!
The image is sharp and the colors great. I like this shot a lot and thanks for posting - looking forward to the next one!
Very nice specimen for the fungi theme. I am impressed with those textures, I would not ming if you posted some other view of this same one, specially the underside seems to be fantastic. Good note.
PD: what do you men by "i selected the bottomtexture and placed it on top of the image and made it transparent"
Do you mean that some of the textures of this shot are not real?

My goodness, all that detailed information. You must be studying to become a a biologist or something. I find the shot lacks a little in sharpness and maybe the very long "panorama" format hadn't been necessary.

Nice capture and interesting composition Kirsten. On my monitor the dof looks perfect with a lot of details and the colours looks very natural. Great informative note - thanks.

Beau specimen de champignon qui complète bien la collection. La note est très détaillée.
Your photos show typical basidiocarps of Daedalea quercina (Linneo 1753) Persoon 1801, I'm sure at 99%.
It is a very common specie all over the world and its determining macroscopical features are:
1) The hymenium whith gills arranged like a labyrinth (inde nomen of the genus, Dedalo=Greek labyrinth).
2) The wide thickness at the join with wood.
Others important features are microscopical.
