Hi Thijs. You have taken a good close up of the fungi. I like youe POV which makes them look as if they are on a hillside .
You have fine detail and natural colours. Looks good on the green moss. well done tF.

Ha Thijs,

Een fraaie opname van deze paddestoelen,mooi gekozen standpunt en achtergrond ziet er mooi uit,jammer dat je er een watermerk over geplakt hebt,er schijnt wat commotie te zijn over rechten op TN,maar ik geloof niet dat de nieuwe uitbaters het slecht voor hebben en is de reactie van veel leden wat overdreven om gelijk foto's te verwijderen,maar ja wie ben ik,

Hi Thijs.
It is true, amazing work of high photo art. I like all at the picture. Subject is selected amazingly. POV and diagonal composition of the shot are superb. Reproduction of the charming mushrooms is great and BG is so fine as all other components of the image. Well done and compliments. Perfect job.

Hi Thijs,
Geen idee wat voor soort paddestoel dit is, maar ze staan er prachtig op. Prachtige compo en pov. Zeker de kleurencombi is zeer mooi te noemen.
groetjes Paula

Merhaba Thijs,
harika bir makro fotoğraf; netlik, ışık, ve renkler süper olmuş. Alt bölümde, mantarın üzerinde bulunan sivrisinek ayrı tat katmış.

Hello Thijs.
I would guess that this is a Psathyrella, probably a P.multipedata.
A very nice, clear and artistic photograph it is.
Thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hi Thijs,

Felipe, Felipe... I have to disagree with 'extramundi' (although he's one of my best Friends on the site) in the case of ID specification. This group on Your photo without any doubt belongs to the Micacei section of Coprinellus genera, it must be either Coprinellus micaceus or C. truncorum (differences are mainly microscopical), both species are very common on the Northern hemisphere.

Photographical point of view:
+: great natural colors, sharp caps, nicely blurred background.
-: big oof section in the foreground; absolutely useless watermark on the image (it's very disturbing for us, simple viewers, who shouldn't like to steal the pic). You should have used a smaller watermark (if sign isn't enough) to hide the oof part in the lower left corner by my opinion.

Without the '-' this should have been an excellent fungi shot. A pity there's a "should have been".

Best regards from Hungary, László

Excelente luz y buena disposición de los hongos. Angulo algo ajustado pero sin importancia.
