[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today was beautiful sunny morning so I went to the park to photograph some fungi. I took over 100 photos and suddenly mist aproached. Once again I was very lucky. I took few magical photos with mist and sunbeams. I could say that I'm slowly specializing in this subject :-) Anyway - I'm in rush now, so I'm very sorry but I'll try to write notes to your pictures later, my friends! Sunbeams will be tommorow, now look at this two frozen bros :-)

Me agrada el brillo y la agudeza obtenida sobre la parte superior de los hongos... es maravilloso.
Tambien es bonita la composicion por su entorno y desenfoco apropiado.

I please me the brightness and sharpness obtained on the superior part of the fungi... is wonderful.
Also its pretty the composition by his appropriate surroundings and DOF.

I think you got the perfect distance this time, it is just what Gert & I were talking about in my last post of Lycoperdon. Very nice exposure and lighting too.
But if you just had your POV a bit lower you would have two aditional benefits: you would get the stem into focus as it would be perpendicular to your POV, and also you would have the shape of the "tit" of the hat better defined against the blurred background.
I will be as critic as posible, hope you do the same with my shots, I think that is thats way to learn from other people opinions. Thanks.

Is that really ice on the cap? how novel :) extramundi said it all in his post the only other thing I have to add is I would probably have cloned out he two bright yellow spot on the dark leaf in the background.

Grzegorz, It's a great shot! The glistening effect of the ice on the umbrellas is magical!! Well done!!!

I am looking forward to the fog scenes! this is a great shot. I would have cloned out the reflections or highlight on the cone.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Really magical pics,iceing on cap !!!Excellent twins.

I love it. It looks like a two umbrellas of great madam :-) I love this frozem water on them too.

Hi Grzeg again,
I still have a few smileys left for today, so let's go on Your fungi again. :) This one on Your pic is a very common specie at winter time, and very photogenic with the very small ice crystals. Scientific name: Tubaria hiemalis. Please also see this specie here.
Excellent POV, sharpness, details and compo. Bravo.
Best regards, László
