A very beautifull mushroom! It's called Amanita muscaria and is poisonous! A good photo but the POV it isn't very great! Next time try to find another position that dont put anything bethween you and the subject! TFS!

Hi Agnes,

I'm sorry to say but this isn't a good photo at all. Let's see why:
- there's a very disturbing grass-blade between the mushroom and the lens
- focus was not set well, the closest parts of the fruitbody became heavily unsharp
- the composition's failed, too, you cropped the bottom of the mushroom while there's big empty space above it. A vertical composition would have been a better choice.

Only good lights / colors can't save an image if the composition's a total failure. And now it is. A pity.

Best regards, László
