Hello, A very interesting close up of the underside of the mushroom. Good DOF and the photo has a nice sense of lines and curves. TFS,
and have a great day,

Hello Vasko.
I like you capture showing the top and underside gills of this mushroom. Nice natural setting and thanks for sharing.

Hi Vasko,

Greetings first of all. Before answering your question "how to remove blue cast" I must tell the color tone your photo got a little overcast of is cyan, not blue! Removing the blue cast: try level adjustment - first of all auto levels, and if that one doesn't meet your expectations, set the levels manually. You can also try, if the result's not good enough, with color adjustment. I don't have Photoshop CS5, only CS2, but I used to work with Ulead Photoimpact 12, that's my favorite - so the names of tools may be a little different. I made a workshop for you, with a simple PhotoFiltre demo - but telling the truth I didn't detect the heavy blue / cyan overcast you talk about, only a little!

Much bigger problem is the out of focus fruit-body in the foreground - practically half of the photo is filled with blurred mushroom textures which didn't help to the photographer, nor the viewer, to achieve the best possible DoF, although you worked with f/13,4. I tried to correct this in my WS with cropping.

ID: the False Chanterelle, Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca (Wulfen) Maire, unmistakable.

Best regards, László
