Salut Christian
Belle netteté et prise de vue. C'est juste légèrement coupé en bas mais cela ne dérange pas trop.

Christian, as usual, excellent sharpness.

I also enjoy pov and composition a lot.

Lovely colors in another excellent shot by you.

Great capture Christian,
Very busy night again!!
No time to read notes, but enough time to enjoy your post.
Have a good week. TFS

Excellent photo, Christian. I particularly like the defined gills under the mushroom. The curvature gives it a nice compositon. Very nicely done! :-)

Hello Christian, this is an excellent fungi picture. I hope, i can see more about fungis. Great colours, exellent sharpness, a very nice composite. Well done. (the german name about this fungi is "Kuhmaul")
I wish you a great week.

Hi Christian,
An excellent shot. The color, detail, and DOF are right on the money. The fact that you shot this in macro and handheld it at that shutter speed with these results is even more amazing. Great Job!

Bonsoir Christian,
Il semble délicieux ce champignon presque aussi frais qu'au marché! jolie composition et beau cadrage on y voit les lamelles donc en contre-plongée...la lumière est très belle.

Merci du partage et bonne semaine,

Beautiful details and light Christian, composition and frame is a little tight at bottom but certainly not distracting. 6/10 Well done!

Hi Christian,
Excellent sharpness and details. Great composition.
Did not know this mushroom before - maybe now I will start looking for then ;-)
TFS - Shir

Great shot Christian! I like how you can take something as simple as a mushroom and make it look so glorious.

Hello Christian!

Est-ce un champignon porteur de rhume? ;-)
Joli travail, Christian. Belle composition.
PoV, DoF, alouette... impeccables.
Merci Christian.

Bonsoir Christian,
