Hola José Ramón,
A beautiful portrait of these fungi in a fine composition to show the upper and under surfaces of the hat. Good composition and sharpness. We have ten species of Lepista in Sweden and L. nuda is good to eat.
Thanks for sharing,
Buen trabajo!
Un saludo cordial,

Hello Jose Ramon!
What a beautiful pair of mushrooms!
I have never seen purple fungi before!
Perfect lighting, exposure and use of flash.
Razor-sharp with crisp edges, and great detail which is conserved by the brilliant clarity.
Nice colours that are natural and well balanced.
The low-down POV is very effective!
Well done,

Hello Jose,

Perfect picture of these fungi. Beautiful composition, beautiful light, beautiful colours... beautiful!

Well done,

I like the composition especially the sense of complementarity inhernt in the shapes of two fungi.

Bonjour Jose Ramon,
Ces champignons sont très photogéniques avec leur couleur mauve si fine. L'image est aussi très informative nous montrant les deux aspects du chapeau, le dessus et le dessous. Jolie perspective choisie aussi. Une bonne image comme tu sais si bien les faire. Merci
Bonne soirée

Hallo Jose
Purple fungi for my theme. Jipee I found something else than purple flowers. This is indescribable beautiful. Really spectacular. The colour is vibrant and stunning. I have never seen a "mushroom" with a colour like this. Fantastic focus, with clear details, with excellent framing. Lovely presentation. I enjoyed looking at this one. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.
