[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Thanks for your comments on my previous post. My weekly upload is a very personal photo, which symbolizes my life. In the background you can see a row of fruitbodies, which is like a tie, my roots - which are in my home country, Hungary - while in the foreground there's a choice where to go on this "highway": left or right (Hungary or Ireland, where I currently live). This is the personal input. About the species: Stereum hirsutum (Willd.) Pers., the Hairy Curtain Crust. Very common all over the world.

Photo: taken in a park of Cork City, on living tree, probably Norway maple (Acer platanoides). Shutter priority exposure mode, flash, manual white balance. PP: cropping to squared format, selective sharpening slightly.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Laszlo,
I feel like I am lying down on the forest floor next to a rotting fallen tree which is now home to an array of lichens, mosses and this beautiful string of fungi. Nicely composed shot while showing these living organisms in fine detail and natural colors. Well done!!

Hello Laszlo,
A top quality image! The details, focus and sharpness are splendid. Lovely contrast against the dark-green background. Fantastic details and clarity. Very nice composition.
Thanks for sharing this interesting capture.

Hello László,
What a gorgeous light and contrasting colours in this photo. Together with the original composition this is a beauty! Excellent sharpness and DOF.

Great photo Laszlo! An Interesting and beautiful combination of fungi, mosses, lichens and an isopod. Excellent composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness.

Hello László

The light and contrast are lovely on this photo as the color tones of the mushrooms,
you choose a fine POV with the framing giving perspective effect to the photo,
with great focus, sharpness, and details, TFS


Just an interesting perpective. Amaizng light very good contrast.
