A Few Colourful Fungi
Your photo was next to mine this morning so I couldn't help but notice the gorgeous colors of the fungi you posted. I didn't realize they came in colors other than brown and white. Thanks for sharing and broadening my horizon.
I workshopped your photo to add some light and color to the scene. Hope you like it.

Ciao Steve, amazing colors for those fungi, fascinating composition with splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
I love the different forms and colors of these fungi and applaude you for spreading the spores in a likely natural habitat. I would be very interested in seeing them growing in their natural habitat so please do post... :)
I also took the liberty of doing a workshop of your photo... hope you like the changes. see above under link "workshop".

Enter Steve from stage left. Let us practice the BLOCKING. It is a well staged shot Steve. An amazing array of rainbow. You and your fungi. You have a passion for these things. It appears as though you spend much of your time on the ground. I spend most of my time in a chair. HA.

Lovely colourful group, exotic mushrooms;) Here in Poland is middle of spring, unfortunatelly very dry so I have found only few species since now. But still hoping for wet and warm summer and autumn- really great time for mushroom picking and shooting.

You guys really do have the most amazing mycology over there! I never tire of seeing those Blue Pink-gills. Very nicely presented on the furry moss and well laid too.
Great all round post mate, well done.

Wonderful bunch. It's so good to see Your shots, because, as I mentioned in another critique, there's drought here - drought is the strongest enemy of fungi, because 90% (sometimes more) of the friutbody is water! Even tinders (bracket fungi, which seems quite dry) contain 60%.
I prefer Your original shot with natural colors, even the light conditions weren't the most perfect - one of the workshops seems oversaturated a bit, while the other became too bright, killing the colors of the fungi. So, again a congratulations from my side, MF.
Tfs, cheers, László

Hello Steve !
So it is fungi time in your part of the world ? :-) You have harvested a very interesting collection of mushrooms, I like their colors, specially the blue ones, because they are so beautiful and they don't exist here in France. Blue, white, red, yellow, and the green of the most - a true pleasure for the eye. Very well done !
