Beautiful image Jan. Colour and detail are amazing with them reflecting in the water.
Have you looked at cropping some off the top of the image to just on the dark line to bring them up in the top third of your image, that works quite well just to take out the light pieces above the dark line that keeps catching the eye. These fungi deserve all the attention here.
Really beautiful

Hello Jan,
the colours, the composition, the idea, the exposure...it all looks so nice.
Great surreal image!
Cheers, JAcob

Hi Jan,
This is really beautiful. The reflection of these small fungi situated in the water is just marvelous. It almost makes for a surreal landscape. The details in the photo are pefect and the shallow DOF gave the subject the full attention. I love the color range in this photo, it has such a nice warm tone. Superb work on the low pov and exposure.

Hi Jan,
Very beautiful capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Bonjour Jan,
Woooooooow ! I love this photo ! It is so beautiful and original. The mushrooms are nice, the warm colors and the reflection are amazing. Light, sharpness and DOF are excellent.
BRAVO my friend and thanks for sharing.

Hi Jan, How I wish I had taken this one, it is beautiful the balance of light and colour is perfect IMO.
I agrre with Kathleen though the image improves if you veiw it with the top cropped off at the bottom of the dark band near the top to get rid of the light areas also it pulls the line of fungi onto the top Third of the image which is a strong place for the subject to be rather than across the middle.
TFS yours Robert

Hi Jan and sorry for the delay.

This really is a splendid macro shot but also a very aestetic view over this small colony :)
The reflection here are brilliant and the low-angled POV is exceptional!
Excellent DOF, too, as well as the sharp details and beautiful colors.
Magnificent composition!

Bravo and TFS

good work.

Hi Jan,
Minimalistic yet fantastic macro, I really like the reflections and the colors also. Magnificent capture, but the empty scene on the bottom is too much to my taste - that's why I posted a WS. Otherwise very nice work.
Congrats and tfs, cheerz, László
