[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken on Saturday in the forest in Zegartowice (40km from Krakow). I've been there for about 3 hours and found over 30 fungi like this one.
Fortunatelly there were no other people in the forest, so atmosphere was quiet and peaceful just like nature should be.
Unfortunatelly (by a chance), I changed ISO speed into 1600!!
Thanks for visiting.

Bonjour Maciej,
Excellent angle de prise de vue pour le spectateur, et sans doute très pénible pour l'opérateur !!!
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet dans une très belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Maciej, wonderful macro of this fungus. Great sharpness and lots of good detail. Excellent photo. Have a great day, Bill

Hi Maciej,

The mushroom is well placed in the frame. the macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Boletus luridiformis. The late morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
