Hi Jitti,
Splendid looking fungi with very unusual cup like formations. Lovely soft colours and perfectly lighted to bring out the beauty in them. Very sharp image and neat focus. The darkish BG higlights them well and your low POV is superb. Wonderfully composed and presented. Kudos.

Hi Jitti,

These are beautiful! They look more like flowers than fungi. I love the curved stems. Beautiful colors and excellent details in a beautiful natural setting.

Beautiful textures and fine details in the fungi, the colours crerate almost a 3D feeling!

Hello Jitti !
I love the shape and the color of these mushrooms, they are so beautiful ! I also like the fact that each one is "looking" in another direction. Outstanding composition and colors, excellent details, beautiful POV, nd a wonderful dark BG on which the fungi stand out so nicely. Very well done !

These could be under the sea, you have really opened my eyes to the variety of fungi. Great light and shadow. Just noticed how the stick resembles a crocodile!

Hi Jitti,
Excellent comosition on this collective shot of mushrooms, the exposure is spot on with the subject standing out with super results. Very nice. :)
