Hello Felipe and Cristina,
You're lucky still to find fungi about! Here they're all finished now. This illustration is excellent showing great details and standing out against the very nice natural background. I like the composition too.

TFS Kyle

Hi Felipe, 1st thing I noticed was that this was taken with your faithful Sony ? good view of these 2 mushrooms especially the one cut off so we can see the cross section of the stem, not something I tend to do because I tend to leave in situe as I am not harvesting for food.
I has your usual standard of clarity of focus and colour. TFS yours Robert

Hello My Friends!

This time it looks like illustration taken from good fungi atlas. Perfect quality, but you know it well :-) I like shape of standing fungus - looks like wearing a sombrero :-) As always very nice photo and interesting note.

No es la gran presentación que han realizado amigos míos... pero me gusta.
Me gusta por los detalles captados de estos ejemplares en ambos POV (imagino que el caído es intencional y parte de su futura extracción para su ingesta).
El colorido y los contrastes del blanco de los hongos contra el fondo tan variado es muy agradable, incluso con bien foco como se aprecia en las espinas de la rama de la izquierda.
Una interesante entrega para incluir en tan vasto porfolio.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

hi ćfelipe, Nice shot , good POV and composition . I like your clear photo with good DOF. I have similar but not so cleare. Marjan

Magníficos colores y detalles. Una verdadera belleza de luz y presentación. Felicitaciones por esta lindura.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Felipe,
Masterful image. When I do a very closed macro shot about fungi, I'm often suffering from the problem either the closest parts of the cap / lamellas are sharp and the stem's already OOF - or vice versa. I think this is the disadvantage of a compact camera. But on Your photo the lamellas and the stem are both crystal clear, so I think Your settiongs were very well chosen.
Beautiful exposure, sharpness, contrast, color saturation - the only reason why I don't bookmark it as a favorite photo is I should mark each of Your shots. :)
Absolutely fantastic. Tfs and congrats as always.
Cheerz, László
