Hello Felipe and Cristina!
First of all -Iwould like to wish you only happy and nice momens in 2008! Many interesting trips, many beautiful pictures, and of course great living in your new home! (many thanks for long email!:>)

Mushrooms from this photo looks fantastic, I like that they are so delicate but so perfectly presented (I can only dream about F/32 in my coolpix :>).
Lovely presentation of something new and interesting, and for that: thank you very much!
Friendly yours,

Hi Felipe,
This is an amazingly clear capture of these tiny fungi.
You've lit them just right to see all the details without overexposing anything at all.
This is absolutely perfect.
Well done!
ps ... Hope you and Christina are both well.
I don't visit so much lately but I see you've posted some nice shots lately.
Must catch up :)

Hola Felipe,
Happy New Year to You, too, MF. Absolutely excellent and challenging macro shot, perfect exposure and textures. F32... this is something never existed and never will. :) Seems like a Hemimycena specie.
Tfs, best wishes, amigo. Yours, László
