[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Boletus badius (formerly known as Xerocomus badius).
This photo was taken on Saturday in the forest in Zegartowice near Krakow (about 40 kilometers). I've been there for about 4 hours. There were no many fungi. But some of them were beautiful.
Thanks for visiting.

Great shot of this fungus. Outstanding wotk. Have a great day, Bill

Hello Maciej
this fungus is familiar to me too. you nicely captured and presented it with great sharp focus, POV and composition. beautiful colors. thanks for sharing. best wishes

It doesn't look like something I would unless I knew it hd properties. Nice blending with your natural backdrop. Of course you got it that way...otherwise you would have had to pull it up:-)

Hi Maciej,

Wonderful fungi composition with a superb low point of view that shows a little of the under-carriage, excellent detailed sharpness with lovely texture, personally i would have moved that disturbing branch or shot from a different angle?, however a terrific job Maciej and well done,
Best regards,


Another beautiful photo of a fungus with impressive sharpness and DOF Maciej! Excellent composition and fantastic lighting.

Hi Maciej,

The tight frame is putting the mushroom in evidence. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Boletus badius. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Maciej,beautiful boletus and magnificent pic,i like the wet head taken so well,very impressive sharpness and natural colors,and isn't easy in the light of the ground forest.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Ciao Maciej. Great POV here and very good light/colours managment. Excellent DOF.


Bonjour Maciej,
Trčs belle macro, finement détaillée, valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Maciek,
Beautiful shot with very interesting settings (15 sec. and f/29). Sharpness and colors are good each, I feel composition-wise the bolete's a bit closed to the frame at the bottom and concerning to this, a bit too far from the top edge. Just a personal thought, obviously. Otherwise I like your photo and send my congratulations.
Have a great new year, best regards, László
