[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Note: There is a TOP VIEW of the same one.

I am not sure what kind of Russula is this, they are really variable and are a pain to classify.

I guess this can be R. vinosa, fragilis, turci, vesca... I dont know, as much photos I see, more confused I am, I give up...PLEASE HELP!

This was tanken at 18:00 in a pine forest, it was a cold but sunny day, about 7ºC. As you can see water from the moisture condensed by night does not evaporate, mantaining everything wet.

The sun the sun rays of the laying sun where perpendicular and I liked it.

Hope you like too!

F8 - 1/50 - On the ground.

This is a great one, Felipe, where I admire the DOF range, the textures quality and the colors. The ground surface adds also to the feeling of a typical fungus environment and confirms very well the climatic environment you describe. Superb POV. I'll look for ID later.

Hoy visitando la reserva, encontré un par de especies de hongos... pero creo que las imágenes que capturé de ellos son todas descartables.
Puedo asegurarte que en el momento de hallarlo pensé inmediatamente en ti.
Otra hermosa presentacion, estéticamente perfecta por su composicion, por el colorido del hongo y su entorno y por la nitidez habitual en tus imágenes.

Wow...this is perfect as usual Felpe.I just love the colours,the composition,the DOF,POV,everything.
I don't know the exact ID, like you say, there are so many similar ones. Very pretty though.

Very good Felipe.
I love the low angel and the little shadows on the stem.
Very good sharpness,DOF, composition and perspective.
Great work.

All I can say is that you are a master at taking these fungi shots! I am learning a lot from these posts of yours. - Thank you very much.

Incredibly well done.

I love the warm autumn sun from the left. More, I like the angle very much and there are no disturbing things on the ground around the fungus. The blue sky in the background gives a good "depth of view" effect.

Very nice autums image, good composition!

Very nice sunset shot of the mushroom. The lighting is excellent and the detail amazing. Good capture

Felipe, Sharp & detailed, this is another excellent macro from your world of fungi. Like the light with this late-afternoon shot. Well done!

Hi Felipe, beautiful picture, the POV is good and the sunlight is very nice. Thanks for posting.

Great shot. Sorry I am running behind a bit, after the weekend away. Will try to write a proper critique later.

That's a great one I'm not a mushroom fan, but this one is stunning.
Well done.

Afligido, no puedo ayudar para ID.
Puedo sólo decir que es una foto excelente con detalles acentuados. Buen ángulo de grabación bajo la luna luz que favorece el sujeto.
Muchas gracias de compartir con nosotros este género de cosas.

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour cette superbe Russule. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien adaptée.
J'hésite entre Russula Lepida et Russula Emetica...
Very Well Done !
