Hello Felipe and Cristina,
You've really been low on the ground here to capture this fungus from such a low vantage point. It looks really good; fantastic details and lovely colours. Great composition!
Many thanks, Ulla

Lindo o que você conseguiu.

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Bellísima seta que muestra sus mejores partes tirado al suelo:-)
Colores y detalles muy muy bonitos.
Saludos, José M.

Hola Felipe.
Una magnifica imagen.saludos.

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Buena toma en su hábitat y a ras de suelo como a mí me gustan, la luz y definición son excelentes. Conozco un caso de intoxicación atribuída a una variedad de esta especie la var. bohemica (Wichansky 1961) asimísmo fácilmente confundible con la Macrolepiota venenata (Jacob ex) Bon in Bon, Vallée et Jacob. Un cordial saludo

Uno de tus puntos de vista extremos y aquí no me digas que te ayudó la pendiente...
La posibilidad de ver desde abajo tan bello ejemplar con semejante nitidez y perfecto foco, realzados por el exacto uso del flash creando una cálida paleta de colores.
Qué difusor utilizaste en este caso para lograr tan buen resultado?.
Un gran saludo amigos.. Ricardo

Hi Felipe and Cristina

Very well handled exposure. You have captured excellent details and show nice textures and colours from a perfect POV. :-)

Another beautiful mushroom shot rom you, my friends!
The details here are simply terrific and the DOF is amazing - keeping all the fungus in complete focus.
Also the textures are lovely and the colors are great.
Very nice, already classical, low POV andvery good flash management as well.

Cheers and TFS

Awesome detail in this wonderful macro, I love the perspective on this. Excellent control of flash. :)

Otra captura fascinante de setas.
Me gusta este punto de vista por las laminas tan visibles y simetría - también me gustaría ver el sombrero por enzima.
Extraño a las lapiotas....
Saludos - Shir

Hi Felipe,
Nice exposure from an unusual yet great low POV. Nice details, informative note, although I don't like the colours too much, they became a bit oversaturated. But I know You had difficult light conditions. Tfs, regards, László
