nice mushroom and fungis. good work.

Hi Vasko,

I truly hope you don't handle me as a nit picker but I must mention something I don't like again. It's the composition itself. Again too central, with halfly cropped fruitbodies on the top and in right. A vertical compo would have been a better choice, or a horizontal with the main group in the left third, the fungi in the far background in the right and a little less zoom (or a step backwards in order not to crop the upper bunch halfly). Otherwise OK depth of field, colors, exposure (slight overexposion, but really minor).

As you wrote to me, you're about to buy a new camera and are very excited. I wish you good luck for the new equipment and I'd like to see your work soon. Until then, I repeat I hope you'll be a worthy macro photographer in the very near future - and honest critiques, even if they hurt sometimes, are very important to our improvement. Be sure all of us were beginners once and we all suffered this period, when you know what you wanna do, but still unable to compose it! So my advice is practice, practice and practice. And the result will come.

ID: Mycena stipata Maas Geest. & Schwöbel.

Best regards, László
