Hello Zoe,
You did a nice job on this tiny mushroom photo. The only thing I would have done differently would be to crop some of the left hand side out just a little, so there isn't quite as much dead space. I really like the natural colors you have captured and nice detail. TFS.

Hi Zoe,

Nice find! I happen like mushrooms a great deal, especially the ones that grown on trees. I am fond of the yellow, orange and cream colors with the touch of green grass about. I agree with tuslaw, in that a bit of trimming on the left might bring less attention on the grass. I think I know that you were trying not to center the subject, which I often like to do as well, but leaving too much space actually takes away from your beautiful mushroom. It seems to draw the eye away, almost making me think that there might be something else that you were trying to get into the photo. I also have found that if there are pieces of grass in front of the subject, you may want to triple check your focus. Even one tiny blade of grass can make your camera focus on it rather than this pretty little thing. I think you did a very nice job. You seem to have a good eye for things as you meander through nature. Take care :-)
