[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

My 1st fungi-photo of this year. I hope I'm not far from the truth when guessing this specie is Sarcoscypha coccinea, an early little red treasure growing on dead branches.

Edibility: rather worthless.

I photographed this group in the Bükk mountains, in a valley named "Sebes-víz-völgy" (="Fastwater Valley"), not too far from a ranch named Garadna.

Hello Laszlo,

A beautiful composition. Sharp like a razorblade. Natural colors. POV, DOF and BG are good.
I have no idea about the ID of this group fungis, but when I see the fungus on the link Mushroom Observer, I think you have the correct ID. Have a nice weekend and TFS BOB

Hello Laszlo,

You play excellent with light, what a nice composition.
Great macro picture, colours and presentation are superb.
Very well done.

Have a nice weekend,

Hello László. This is a wonderful composition with the diagonal tree trunk in good perspective. The fungi is in good detail and very pleasant in presentation. Well done and best regards. Jusni

In this stage, it looks almost as a peziza, except for the colour :)
It is a very cluster, and a very pleasant photo.
Thanks very much, MF.
Regards, Felipe.

Hi dear Laszlo ,
Very nice shot with vivid colours and nice sharpness.


Hi Laszlo

Thanks for your recent comments. Its true that I like birds, but I'm fascinated with fungi too.
This is an interesting shot of these little mis-shapen cups. Well composed and good DOF. Good sharpness.

Hello Laszlo,
Wooow ! You are lucky to meet such interesting species, I am jalous ;-)
The "+++" : composition, great subject, POV, sharpness, DOF, useful complementary note...
The "-" : perhaps a little bright background on top-left...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing,

Hi Laszlo,
I missed this one when you put it on.
Its an impressive looking fungi,and a hard one to photograph I bet.
Those reds never really get the autofocus going properly.
Nice shot though.
