Hi Trekkers,

We, Fungi Association of Miskolc, although used to organize several smaller expositions through the year, had our "big expo" in the last 2 days in a local museum. Having an extremely wet year here, we were able to show at least 200 species to the visitors. So, for this occasion, I thought about sharing something "structural", to show for example the gills to You, visitors of my virtual expo.

I chose this species, Laccaria laccata (English name: The Deceiver, Hungarian: húsbarna pénzecskegomba) for now. Common on the whole Northern hemisphere, already shared on TrekNature - so I'm sure most of you are familiar with this species. If not, please read the Wikipedia article linked above (also see cap photo there), and have a look on its gill structure.

On the workshop you can see a bunch of visitors from the expo (taken yesterday).

Photo: very few PP - soft cyan filter, noise reduction, selective sharpening.

I hope you'll like the pic, thanx for your comments.

Hello László,
A fine image showing the gill arrangement of this species of Laccaria that I am sure I have seen growing near where we live but have never been certain about the ID.
I like the lighting, POV and composition with the stem coming diagonallt from the corner and the colours are natural with the OOF tree BG making the mushroom stand out.
Thanks and have a good week,

Ciao LAzlo. What great POV for an exciting taken in perspective. Good details and light.

Hello Wladyslaw,
In your country you have very huge disaster. I hope it will end successfully. You took shot from underside and very hard to know which it species. From your note I know now that is very common in my forest mushroom especially in late autumn.
Regards, Pawel

Hi Laszlo.
Great idea of the image and nice execution. You have found a very attractive and unusual POV. Lights and details of the mushroom's cap are great. Grass, trees and even blue sky are blurred superbly and look excellently. TFS and best wishes.

Hello László,

The time of mushrooms is again coming, I am also two week busy with take of macro's, the nature is very nice now.
You took these mushroom on a very nice way, low against the ground, lovely structure.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Szia Bareatom,

I think you've took this shot sunset light? Great POV to show the main characteristic of a mushroom! yellow/white/cream are such difficult colors to expose properly, and you've nailed it. DOF is perfect to get the whole mushroom sharp and have nice bokeh in the background. Good placement of the main subject too.
TFS and have a nice night!


Hi László. This is not an easy shot unless you can flip the LCD for the view without having to get down low. Details are well defined and looking really impressive. Perfect control of DoF in silencing the background. Nice artwork and thanks a lot for sharing. Best regards - Jusni

Hello MF Laszlo,
this is a very dramatic capture of the fungus. excellent shot showing the gills and its trunk.
Indeed a very special upward shot, and I could feel as if im an ant.
Well done and my hat off to you for the expo done to highlight the fungi world.
well done and congratulations for the effort.


Hola Laszlo

Esta si que es una interesante imagen, y por cierto, te has tenido que tirar al suelo para poder hacerla, o el tamańo de la seta es gigantesco. A parte de bromas, es una imagen muy buena, con perfecta nitidez, profundidad de campo y POV excelente.

Un saludo de Antonio

Beautiful picture...
Excellent POV..!!!
