I already posted this "Dali picture" looking mushroom with "Fast recycling" title HERE, where you can find some info about it.

A lot of people seemed to be as surprised with this picture, I am also each time I see this scene, so I though it good be good to have this two other views of these. They are quite difficult to shoot, specially to find a good POV for a suitable BG.

This are taken the 2nd. day of this month, and I could shoot them the first time in mid-october, at least this ones are fruiting for two months. Found scattered in mixed forest leaves of chessnut tree and eucaliptus, shady place near river.

Hope you like!

Yes, I like!
Your title fit perfecly.
An excellent work, Felipe.

2 Good shots felipe in both they are well seen, for me the right hand one I much prefer the sharpness and colours and the whole Dali feel is more inherent in this one and would stand in its own right.
These slow speeds realy do seem to work for fungi if you can keep the noise under control.
Nice one.

Wow! Interesting mushrooms. I like your composition.

Great Felipe! I like quality but subject makes the picture. Very interesting fungi, fragile looking and very well captured. I like brownish colours also.

Very delicate specimens that you have captured well. Thanks for the second view, it was worth it. The POV is exceptional and the framing/composition is very good. Lighting is excellent, well done.

Nice composition, good details as always.

Fantastic Felipe. Excellent DOF and POV. Amazing subject. Very good post

Tack sharp and a pleasing earthy tonal range. Well done Felipe I think you did Dali justice on this one. Nice set, tack sharp.

Galicia's humid and warm climate seems to be ideal to grow these little jewels. Very well observed and photographied, with a large DOF and a very good light. I like how you use the twin image to show more elements in the same frame. Very well done Felipe.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Hi Felipe
A very nice follow-up on on the firstpost. Hee I can see a bit better, the first one really had my head spinning. Unbelievable the way they grow through the leaves too.
Lovely mmod, textures and colours here, TFS

Great work with a difficult subject. I can see what you mean about POV and BG, but you've nailed them both perfectly here.
