[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken on Saturday in the forest in Zegartowice (40km from Krakow). I've been there for about 3 hours and found over 30 fungi like this one.
Fortunatelly there were no other people in the forest, so atmosphere was quiet and peaceful just like nature should be.
Unfortunatelly (by a chance), I changed ISO speed into 1600!!
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Maciej,

Well what can i say? here Maciej your picture yesterday is so much better than this one?, my question to you is why submit a similar inferior image today Hmmm, again a splendid picture but what lets this one down is the excessive grain, nevertheless a pleasing entry,

Hello Maciek,
Nice capture of this Boletus, a species that is very popular for eating in Sweden.
Excellent POV, sharpness and natural colours, with very little noise despite the high ISO.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Maciej,
nice capture of this mushroom with good sharpness and natural colours. I am surprised with the good quality despite you have chosen ISO 1600. Well done.
Best wishes,

Bonjour Maciej,
La cueillette a l'air d'avoir été bonne !!!
Encore un excellent angle de prise de vue pour le spectateur, et sans doute très pénible pour l'opérateur !!!
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet dans une très belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Con características de luz y colores similares a las de tu
trabajo anterior, pero en aquel la toma resultaba más
Saludos y buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Another fine close up of fungi,nice colors and very fine POV...

Hi Maciej,

The vegetation is framing well the mushroom. The point of view is showing the dteails and colors of the Boletus edulis. The afternoon light is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
