[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's a mushroom that lives up to its name—it looks, smells, and tastes like oysters. With virtually no stalk, this mushroom's oyster-shaped caps usually grow in layers on dead deciduous wood (or on some supermarket shelves), like clusters of oysters. The moist, hairless, fragrant, white to smoky-gray caps are 2-8 inches wide.

Great stuff Ton.
This is an awesome shot of these Pleurotus.
Taken from a great POV with excellent DOF lighting and detail.
You've done a great job with this shot Ton.
Excellent work!

Hallo Ton,

Wat een mooi lijnenspel toveren die paddestoelen ons voor. En jij hebt dit schouwspel mooi, glashelder weten vast te leggen. Fijne zachte kleuren. Goede achtergrond. Een leuke compositiie, zo met de kleintjes op de voorgrond. Geeft een speels effect aan het geheel. Zo de paddestoelen van onderaf fotograferen vind ik ook bijzonder. Ik doe dit zelf ook graag. Prettige dag en tot TFS BOB

  • Great

Hello Ton,
a beautiful perspective! Great depth of field and excellent sharpness to show this mushroom 'family'. The background forms a nice contrast. Light is well balanced and the colours are natural.
Best wishes, Peter
