[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

There is a [WORKSHOP] to show you what is this.

I already posted this same one in a [Large Post] and a [Four stage development] with INFO about them.

In normal circunstances this ones should be burried, but a hard rain washed out some soil for the side of a path, and gave me the opportunity of completing the series.

Hope you like!

Hola Felipe,
Gran envío para completar la serie. La he revisado y es extraña, bonita e interesante.
Magnífico control de la luz, bellos colores y textura y terrible impacto visual. Composición equilibrada, con un "centro de masa" bien centrado. Delicado marco que -imperceptiblemente- mejora la foto.
Un saludo,
José M.

Hi Felipe. They don't look quite so interesting like this,but the photo is flawless.Perfect lighting and detail.
I liked the one you posted a while ago called 'Old Earthstar'
I have it still saved in my favourites.

I hadn't seen the other photos of these so looking at this post along with the other posts/workshop has been really interesting. This is a good shot too - lots of detail, good composition and lovely earthy colours. Very interesting.



Hello Felipe and Cristina
Amazing that these large seed pods grow into such an interesting plant. Mother Earth can be full of surprises. TFS Janice

Hi Felipe!
This is like Kindersurprise :-) Or ugly duckings from Andersen. Brown and ugly and later one of most fantastic fungi. I like - composition, brown mood, frame, hairs/veins on fungi. Looks like start of good horror movie. Perfect WS.

Hi Felipe, I remember your Earthstar from last season. Such unusual and interesting fungi. And their life-cycly is quite amazing. They look quite ugly now, but once they start growing things certainly change!
TFS again!
