Good work with the Felipe tip Chris. This is a very informative post. good work
This is a great one, Chris. Superb photo quality. It's limpid, beautifully sharp and colored. Very good framing too. The light is so well displayed, and so naturally, that the cap textures really come out on the screen as if it was in 3D. A favorite!
Very god macro Chris.
Great colors, DOF, details and light.
It you have 20,000 macro fugis, you have some job to do, I'll wait for the rest.;-)
Very good work.

Three is a magic number. Fantastic trio Chris, the textures and pastel lemon colouring are superb. Very well composed and hte lighting is great too.
An excellent post. Just beautiful. I love the shape colour and composition you got here. I am also very happy my high-tech diffuse flash helped you with this beauties. A perfect use of a F:3.2, and POV with the small ones at the base.
And remember, several folds on paper, adjust levels... put some distance between the paper and the flash, the result is very different, better sometimes with middle distance macros.
I will post some more soon with this technique. TFP.

Chris, vivid yellow shades, perfect POV, DOF and composition. The blurred BG is a nice contrast.
Wow, excellent Chris! I love this yellow colour and ulltradetailed textures. Great work.
Excellent macro, Chris.
You managed very well the fill-flash.
I look forward for the 19,999 other fungi ;-)
Thanks a lot.

Beaufiful and it looks poisonous too, great exposre as well. You can use tissue paoer too as a diffuser, or even use it it get some extralight onto the subject - just make sure it is not in the frame.
Thanks for the humour with the secretary, I had a quiet chucle about the cobra.
Will you see other strange mushrooms if you eat these? ;-)
Nice composition and colours. Sharpness and DOF is good as well.

Waouh ! Belle et intéressante macro pour ces superbes champignons jaunes. Très jolies couleurs et bonne netteté grâce à la profondeur de champ bien adaptée.
Wonderful and very well done !!!

What a great shot ! Amazing details, contrasts and especially colours. Great job.
Very colorful, and technically superb. Was the aperture really f/3.2, or f/32 to get such depth of field in a macro? Very sharp - the little insects (midges?) add a sense of size to the fungus itself.

Lovely shot Chris and a very useful note. I have been trying to shoot lots of various fungi recently so will pack a hankerchief and give this technique a go.
The texture of the fungi captured in this shot is wonderful. Thanks for posting this.

Hi Chris, I just keep finding gems on this site. Great image and very useful note, well done. The fungi stand out so well from the litter. Will be looking for more. Regards, Rob.
How could I miss this picture before?
It is absolutely wonderful!

Excellent close-up Chris!
Focus and exposure couldn't be better. Artistically, the composition is well balanced. But best of all is the soft light and the colors contrast. The fungi really stand out of the picture. TFS

At first I would like to sorry for delay :)
This is very nice picture. What is especially interested for me in this picture is combination of shape and colour of this species.
DOF and POV are very good, also not is helpful.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
The reason of choosing this old post of You for today is now, when Steve (LordPotty) is in an inactive period I miss fungi pics from Your region.
This is an exceptional photo of the tropical specie Leucocoprinus birnbaumii (Clive was right), which lives in Europe only in glass-houses. Local literature says it was already found a few times in my home country, too. Fantastic details, cap texture, colors and sharpness. Very clever use of flash. A real stunner image. Bravo. A favorite for me, too.
20.000 macro fungi in Oz... Although Hungary's much, much smaller, something like Tasmania state or a bit bigger, we have ca. 3.000 only. I hope to find this specie once, in a glass-house, but the chance is very small.
Best wishes, László
