Frumoase culori si detalii, este o ciuperca medicinala, se foloseste in tratamentul anumitor formelor de cancer!

Buna Alin,
Ce interesante ciuperci. Au culori superbe si par extrem de catifelate.
Foarte bune completarile lui Joska....
Numai bine!

Beautiful fungi. I have an idea that might improve the composition a bit. Worth trying anyway. Cropping in the left hand side, next to the smaller mushrooms. But just an idea, its nice as it is.

TFS, Anders

Hello Alin.
Very good capture of these mushrooms with lovely colors, sharpness & fine details. Very nice POV & composition. Well taken & presented.
Best regards Siggi

Hello Alin.

Thank you for that picture of Trametes versicolor.

Interesting composition and point of view showing us the profusion of the mushroom. The sharpness is quite good (should have be better?). Good depth of field. Natural colors.

Anyway this is a great photo.

Thank you for the sharing. See you soon on treknature for other pictures.

All the best.
