[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found these beauties in the forest last year (this year has been very mushroom-poor for me).

I suspect these to be some Lactarius, maybe L. camphoratus - anyone who knows the exact ID please help!

I lack some DOF on this one but I like the warm low light a lot so decided to post it.

Hi Shir,
Don't be hard on yourself the DOF is not so bad.I like the ground level POV and wide angle making the mushrooms look so large.As you say, the light is very pleasant especially that caught on the right.Good detail and clarity and lovely natural colour.Good work mate...maybe you'll see (eat!) more next year.
Regards, David

Es cierto Shir... la imagen carece algo de DOF, pero la composición es muy agradable, principalmente por el bajo POV que lograste y la iluminación que mencionas muy apropiada, además de un difuso fondo contrastante con los hongos.
Un interesante presentación.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

It is certain Shir... the image lacks something of DOF, but the composition is very pleasant, mainly for the low POV that you achieved and the illumination that you mention very appropriate, besides a diffuse bottom contrasting with the mushrooms.
An interesting presentation.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

HI Shir,
very pretty and I like the POV, seems you were laying in the moss ;-)
Felipe will be proud of you, it's a nice shot and they look delicios - but also the red ones with the white spots look delicios ;-(
Thanks for sharing, greetings and bye

I missed you fungui shots, MF.
As you say DOF is not perfect, nevertheless it is not too bad, I wish all fungi shots posted in TN had this DOF :)
I like very much the greens in the BG, they are lovely.
About the id., I think you might be right, other posible is L. rufus.
BTW: It surprised me to read one of your critics is perfect spanish, do you speak spanish?
Best regards, Felipe.

Hi Shir

I like this. Great low POV. Good quality image. TFS.

They ceratinly are little beauties, well captured.
Good light, great POV and DOF.
Well composed and good exposure.

Hello Shir,
This is a very good picture of those two mushrooms. I think that focus in on the spot and I like this POV and composition that let us admire this natural environment. This BG is very lovely. Well done and thanks,

Hi Shir,
Beautiful image! Excellent lighting, very nice colours and great lower POV.

hola Shir

bonito close up de estos hongos
la composición está muy bien y tu POV ttambien (al mismo nivel), lo que hace que resalten muy bien respecto al fondo borroso

colores intensos pero naturales y la luz natural
lateral tambien funciona correctamente

Hello Shir

A very nice atmosphere in this shot.The deep ,rich colours are beautiful and the soft lighting create a nice mood.Well composed.With interesting POV.TFS



Good shot. I like the simplicity of the shot. The low POV makes the picture much better too as well as the lighting coming from the right.
Well done.
