[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another POV of THIS same ones I posted recently.

I am still looking for the id., so you will have to forgive me.

This group is growing over a row or rails sleepers, which have been recycled as a fence. You can see previous posts of what I believe to be the same ones:
* In a earlier stage HERE
* In a older stage HERE.

If you look at my PROFILE photo, you will see Cristina taking this shot :)

Hope you like!

Extraordinaria imagen de esta linda familia de hongos! La composición ha quedado magnífica con una excelente nitidez y profundidad y unos colores muy naturales.
Me encanta

bien vu ces champignons dans ces fils d' araignée
bonne netteté et super couleurs
bravo et merci

Hi Felipe and Cristina

The low POV works perfectly here. The clarity is spot on showing not only the details in the fungi, but the spiders web as well. Image is of high quality. :-)

hi Felipe,
jolie prise de vue, tout en fraîcheur. La lumière est douce et laisse apparaître subtilement la toile d'araîgnée. Jolies couleurs contrastées.


Very nice Cristina.
Great low POV and excellent sharpness.
Great light and exposure.


Sharp fungi against a blurred background.
Good light as well.

Hello Felipe and Cristina,
Excellent close shot of these fungi in beautiful light against a very nice soft background. Great sharpness and very nice colours. What a good idea to take shots of different stages of its growth and decay!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hola Felipe!
a beautiful composition of this group of mushroom,and I like the point of view ,shooting low and paralel to the ground
do you use a right angle viewfinder?
best regards

A classic shot, Felipe.
Fine composition with a well selected cluster of fungi with perfects colours, contrasts and depth of focus.
The delicate threads of spider's silk add a lovely touch to the composition.

Hi Filipe

Another vrey nice photo from you :)
I like this POV, too that really does well to blurr the farther BG better than in the other post of this species.
The contrast is also very nice, as well as the good sharp details on all of them.
Not such an original presentation, but still a lovely composition.

Cheers and TFS

perfect pic, TFS ori

They look like a happy family on a day's outing - only the cobwebs show us how long they've been waiting for the train to arrive!
Good shot Cristina, they are beautifully sharp and with good clarity too.
Well done

Que buena foto!
Me gusta muchísimo la formación de los hongos, así casi al descuido, sin ningún orden en particular a seguir...y sin enmbargo, que gran armonía en el conjunto!.
Excelente POV para brindarnos estos nítidos detalles, tanto en los hongos como en la rica textura de donde crecen.
Muy acertada la exposición.
Enhorabuena y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Olá Felipe

Uma imagem delicada que inspira fragilidade. Cores, contrastes, e textura muito bons.
Belo trabalho, meus parabéns!!!

Hi Felipe!
I guess these are common 'cause I saw one once in my yard on the root of walnut tree, and they are there every year but I don't know what species they belong, anyway, great POV, composition, details and sharpnes and I like the neutral frame touch!TFS!

Hi dear Felipe ,
what nice family.
great details and excellent sharpness.
light and colours are great.
well done.

La naturaleza es nuestro mejor modelo, en esta foto tuya creo que has conseguido captar el motivo desde una perspectiva original y curiosa, en un momento mágico y con un gran dominio de la luz. Gracias por compartir tanta belleza.

Buenas Felipe.
Después de una vacaciones vuelvo a la carga y ya he comprobado que la gente no se duerme en los laures para subir fotillos.
Muy buena composición la que nos muestras y el detalle de la telaraña es magnífico.
Un saludo

magnífica foto de este grupo de hongoslos colores son muy naturales y la nitidez extraordinaria;
el punto de vista muy bueno y el fondo borroso realza muy bien los sujetos


Hi Felipe,
Another fantastic macro of mushrooms. The lighting is perfect for this really nice shot, the DOF really brings the attention of the viewer. :)

Hi Felipe,
After 12 years it's time to identify the species on your beautiful photo: it's Mycena inclinata (Fr.) Quél., the clustered bonnet, with very characteristic tricolor stem (dark brown at the base, proceeding to yellowish and closed to the cap white). Fantastic shot with perfect exposure and very effective shallow depth of field. Brilliant!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
