[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I don't have much time lately for fungi identification, so forguive me for the lack of information this time.

This one reminds me of some species from the Collybia genus, but I am sure I am wrong so if anyone can help, I would be very grateful.

Hope you like!

Hola Felipe,
We forgive You the lack of ID specification. :) All of us have a lot of images about unidentified fungi. This one's a very nice pic, with great natural colors and wonderful bg. The way it should be done. The only thing I'd have changed (if I were You) is placing the mushroom a bit more off-centered to left. Don't know why left and not right, this is just my personal feeling. Otherwise a top notch image, congratulations, MF.
Best wishes, László

Well done Felipe,
The waterfall really makes the shot a great one :)
Beautiful work,

Hi Felipe and Cristina,
POV,colors,details,BG and composition are excellent.
Thanks for posting.

Hello Felipe, the mist from that waterfall (or did it rain) has really made this shot stand out. The colour saturation is very excellent, and I like the wet looking textures seen throughout, on the fungus, and the plants and leaves around it. Depth of field in this shot is very good, with the focus on the fungi, and foreground, with a nicely muted background made up of that waterfall. Very nicely done.

Thanks, John

Foto de traca !! Supongo que el fondo estaba ahí :-), y si es así, es una toma de premio. Vemos todo el entorno perfectamente y el hongo, dominando, muy bien captado. Das vida y dinamismo a la foto de un simple hongo. Preciosa.

Hello FeCr!

Water and long exposure is always great idea! Waterfall looks good in BG, I like also main subject and its neighbourhood :-) - green plants, brown leaves, pieces of old wood. This time we haven't got one leader but all subjects on your photo are equally important. Very nice scene from floor of forest :-)

Hola Felipe

Great image with the waterfall in the background. I have to agree with Lazslo though that the fungi is too central.
Great sharpness and DOF as usual.
