I am not much time around lately, but my friend Laszlo posted a wonderful dedication for me recently and I felt I had to post something he liked too.
Hope you like this one!!!

This summer we had plenty of rain, people who chose July for the holidays were not lucky... unless fungi hunters...It is not usual to find this beauties developing in august, but a nice group of Macrolepiota procera are growing under this centenary oak trees, were the shadow mantains soil moisture.

Manual exposure
No postprocess except crop, frame, USM, resize.

hello Felipe
super picture with good details and good light
nice composition with beautiful colour
greeting lou

Hello Felipe and Cristina,
Excellent capture with a low POV and sharp details. The colours, the atmosphere is really beautiful. Here, with the square format, the trees on the background, the centered fungus is beautiful. Best regards,

Hongo y entorno, además desde un efectivo ángulo que magnifica la toma. Precioso enfoque al protagonista y colores muy reales. Has conseguido una toma muy natural que te pone en escena.
Saludos Felipe&Cris: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Felipe!

I can't believe this - you still prefere tour old Sony over dSLR :-) Fantastic catch, very well taken with beautifull details and Felipe's DOF [TM] :-) BG is very rich, full of fresh grasses and I also like silhouettes of trees deeper in BG. Very good post as always, I hope you'll find more time to post something more often. Weather is strange this summer - we've got mix of heat and rain and almost everyday we can see beautifull rainbows.

great original pov, with nice large angle lens.
well done

Hola amigos,
cuanto tiempoˇˇˇ
con la misma la calidad de siempre,
precioso punto de vista y sutil fondo.
hermoso trabajo,

Hola Felipe,
Really sorry for noticing Your dedication only now, I was away. Fantastic exposure, sharpness and DOF, as always from You (as Grzeg also said...), although I feel the fungus should have been a ligttle more off-centered. Otherwise a brilliant image.
How lucky You are, having lots of rain in summer... Like we had last year. Now it's drought here - on Sunday I was on a trip in the mountains, the ground's bone dry. I found 21 species, but at least 15 (if not more) were tinders (bracket fungi), growing on wood. However, I love Polypores, but they're so hard to eat... :)
Tfs, friendly greetings, László
