Salut Brigitte,j'ai jamais vu cette espece,en consequence je peu pas t'aider pour le nom,mais je suis ici pour te faire mes compliments pour la magnifique qualite' de cette photo,tu a choisi un point de vue exceptionel pour avoir le meilleur resultat! Bon Vendredi! Luciano

Nice chapeau mon cher ami,

Trčs bien capturé, montrant la profondeur et de contraste, générant beaucoup de profondeur dans l'image. Excellent, bon travail.


Dear Brigitte,

You posted a really difficult specie today, without enough informations. Gills aren't being seen well, we don't know if there was ring on the stem etc. Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) and practically all Acer species, are unable to build ectomycorrhizal connection with fungi. But the habit of Your specimens shows another genus, a saprobic one, Leucoagaricus, if there was ring around the stem. About the deep ID specification: only a tip, I can't be sure at all, but maybe Leucoagaricus wychanskyi is the specie You photographed.

Photographically: the cap of the main fungus is sharp enough, but both composition and cropping aren't the best, main theme's too centered and the smaller specimens are halfly cropped. There's background noise on the pic, and the color of the frame is something I can't congratulate for, it totally kills the contrast of the image, plus beside the bad color choice, it's way too thick. Quite a pity, because the scene looks nice, with different composition and correcting the above mentioned other things a wonderful photo might be shot. And another advice for fungi photographing: use a scissor to remove grass-blades from between the (closest) fruitbody and the lens - it's more easy than doing it with Your hand.

Best regards from Hungary, László

Salut Brigitte
Une bonne composition,j'aime bien l'exposition et les couleurs justes et réelles C'est une trčs belle prise de vue avec ce beau spécimen de champignon.

Félicitations et merci ....Goldy

Salut Brigitte,

I think I am agree with Lazlo.
So this can be an very rare fungi.
Also give Lazlo tips about fungi photograph.
Look my fungi pictures.
Sometimes are it also better to wait till the sun are away, You have now darkness and almosrt overeposure!
But for an new one that just begun not bad at all.


bonjour Brigitte
trčs belle image de ces champignons, on dirait une maman et ses petits qu'elle protčge sous son grand chapaeau
La lumičre et les couleurs sont superbes
Passe un bon WE

Hallo Brigitte
I love this scenery! This is exactly how I imagine it must be in the land of fairies and elf’s. I am sure somewhere behind the large “mushroom” there is some fairies looking back at me. Although I like the whole scenery there are some technical flaws and what I wanted to say László have already pointed out in the best possible way. Keeping all in mind what is wrong in this image, I can add to say that in my personal opinion there is also lovely details captured, and I here refer to the clarity of the markings and texture of the fungi’s “cap”. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
