Buna Liviu,

Fotografia ta cu aceste ciuperci este interesanta. Ai focalizat bine imaginea majoritatea ciupercilor fiind clar redate. De asemenea culorile sunt naturale si realizeaza un placut contrast cu iarba din jur. Nu am rusit sa-mi dau seama daca fotografia este rotita cu 90 garde sau nu.

TFS si toate cele bune,

Calibration Check
