Second mushroom photographed in the "Marais du Nord" near Quebec City in Canada. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of that mushroom... Perhaps can you help me.

Thanks to extramundi for telling me the name of this mushroom. This is a Clavulina cristata.
I made some researsh and found that this is a Clavicorona pyxidata


I found the mushroom a little bit overexposed. See
my workshop on the mushroom.

Clavulina cristata. This one is easy from the coral mushrooms family.
I like the shot, the whites are well controled and the composition is very nice.
I did a modest workshop to try to define better the shape of the mushroom, hope you like. Thanks for posting.

Interesting capture and mushroom Jerome. Very nice details and I like the sculptural look of the plant. I think Felipe did a great WS to enhance the shape of the plant too.

Well done on this capture. Abit of a hot spot. Nicely composed and detailed.


Très belle champignon. J'ai aimé plus la photo originale. Bon travail.

Très belle prise de vue Jérôme. Pour ma part, je préfère le workshop: les détails du champignon sont mieux définis.

Je pense que je préfère ceci à vos W que la couleur est bien mieux
et dans l'ensemble elle ne regarde pas trop l'excédent a exposé, ce
que je de fait cependant doit prendre les couples du peu cassé se
trouvant autour de la base. avec l'identification de Felipe vous
devriez pouvoir mettre à jour le titre et les notes que vous pouvez
faire ceci contrôlent cependant dans votre peu de photos.

I think I prefer this to your WS the colour is much better and as a whole it does not look too over exposed, what I would of done though is to pick up the couple of broken bits lying around the base.
with Felipe's ident you should be able to update the title and notes. you can do this though manage in your photos bit.

The whites here are great. I like the composition and the sharpness is great.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

Nature is amazing. To think that this is a mushroom when it could also be coral. Well photographed.

I agree whit extramundi, this isn't Clavicorona pyxidata. It's impossible!!!
Like extramundi, at first sight I thought at Clavulna cristata but perhaps the points are too squat. Another similar specie is Ramariopsis kunzei (Fries 1821) Corner 1950.
It's hard to identify. However it is a very good photo.

What a lovely fungi. It looks like coral on land. You manged the stark contrast very well, as there is wonderful detail in both mushroom and leaf. Well done.

Seems to look like a "Ramariopsis kunzei" of the "Ramaria" species. It is known to be edible. Nice Composition, DOF and lighting on this capture Jerome!
