[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A beautiful orange hot mushroom, taken in the forest walk in an early fall afternoon.

Although small (~5 cm tall) this Hygrocybe mushroom gets one's attention by it's bright color.

Cropped from original, no other post processing.

If anybody knows the species, I'll be happy to add the information.

Hi Shir, you achieved very nice colours and composition in this shot, but the base and contour of the mushroom is out of focus. If you focus diresctly to the stem of the mushroom, the middle DOF range will be just in the center of the cap ;-)
Thanks for posting.

Nice colours, but way too soft. A good tripod, and a smaller aperture, say F8 or F11, would have kept more mushroom in focus.

Shir you have one of the waxgill typically small and brightly coloured. I cant help with the species but the genus will most likely be Hygrocybe. As others have commented more DOF would help. Also watch that background removal of other bright object can do wonders.
