[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Last sunday I had a walk in one of my favourites places for mushrooms.
I found some fresh and lovely beauties that dont care to grow with 1ºC at night and 12 by day. I must say this is a extremely humid place, that must be an advantage. I found more than expected.

Apart from Les Trois Grâces, (thanks Luc for the name :), I also found some of these yellow ones. With the winter sun filtered by the trees, they seemed to be very proud growing healthy.

I think they are Hypholoma fasciculare. Although this one was alone, there were several small colonies of 3-4 mushrooms, scattered all over the place. You can compare with other posts HERE.

Hope you like!

Not only a nice and delicate soft white mushroom, Felipe, but also a veeeery attractive composition. The proper setting puts this one well in evidence, so the eye stops and remain on the mush details. Fine dark filaments on the stipe, beautiful green and brown shades, and your usual state of the art DOF. Sunshine thru the cap and little patch on the stipe are wonderful. Well done!

Another very sharp, crisp & detailed shot Felipe! Perfect light & artistically composed. Like this type of see-through border edge your using also..Great work!!

A great capture on this mushroom shot. The color and detail are great.
The surrounding grass, fern leaf, and other plant material really enhance the composition of this picture. Perfectly framed. Nice Job!

Another fungus goes to favs. Felipe! You could sell your pictures to scientific magazine. One of your best. Excellent shape and textures of the fungus, but most of all I like diagonal composition with grass and fern on BG. Superb work!

You are a master at these shots Felipe. Excellent composition. Great clarity. very well done

Just perfect! I really love the composition of this photo!

Great composition and instructive note, Felipe. And I like the fact that we can see details in the underside of the "hat". You must have used fill flash too (?). Very nice frame too. Great work. TFS.

Great composition, very good sharpness and POV.
Great composition.
Well done.

Your realy good in this kind of photography,
The light in this one is perfect, the colours are great, the pof and dof are fantastic, this is realy great, my compliments.

The composition ROCKS!, Felipe. The diagonal created by the brown leaves adds a nice touch. I like the frame too. Exceptional "shroom" shot even for your high standard. I love this one.

Very nice soft colours here. As usual your composition is very good and illustrates the fungi and its environment well. My only critique is the bright area in the top left, I would have been tempted to clone that out.

Nice specimen of this mushroom with a lovely background of ferm. I see that you are very much interested in mushrooms. I don't know too much about them but still captured one that I am proud of and posted on TE at morel
