[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is late here, so one more shot of Psathyrellaa piluliformis, you will find info about it in my previous shot.

This one is an experiment shot at 14:30 with a nice winter low sun, coming almost straight but filtered by the branches of the trees in the forest. With the wind, the light changed al the time and was hard to achieve the right exposure.

Hope you like!

F:2.8 - 1/125 - Minitripod - Manual mode.

Jolie photo Felipe !
Felicitations ! Bonne gestion de la profondeur de champs pour démarquer le sujet.

Very nice shot, DOF is incredible (Thanks to 717 and f/2.8 )
Warm colors and excellent composition.

Thanks for sharing


Great capture Felipe, you are defiantly the best at these kind of shots. Again great composition and good use of DOF. Congratulation.

Very different I like the use of the very shallow DOF here, leaving just the one crystal clear, but we can still see it grows in groups . Nice one the low winter sun gives it a magical feel. TFS

Felipe, I love the light and mood you have captured here, the warm tones and OOF backround are exellent. IMO the OOF focus fungi in the foreground spoils the image, I found it distracting, sorry.

Excellent, pin sharp where it matters, and soft where it doesn't. Colours are excellent as are the details.

Hi Felipe, imaginative use of DOF here. I like the mood very much and I like the way you have isolated the one mushroom, it's a very nice shot. Well done.

Hi Felipe, very original picture! Backlight made superb mood, colours are warm and soft. DOF is excellent with one fungus OF and rest OOF which makes great composition and depth. I like your B&W frame - I was going to make something similiar but you were first :-) Great post my friend!

Très belle et intéressante macro-photographie pour ces petits champignons. Jolies couleurs. Profondeur de champ un peu courte à mon gout.
Well Done !

I dont like it I find to much of the forground been out of focus is to distracting.

The one that stands out in the crowd!
Nice shot Felipe. The colours from the sun have given a good exposure to this field of Psathyrellaa piluliformis. (What a name) Colours and details good. Nice one!

Felipe, Like this technique of isolating the one in the crowd..I like the way the scene is lit also..Well done!!

Great shot, beautiful light, great details and very good POV.
Well done.

Hi Felipe.
Concept of isolating one subject by playing with the DOF works very well with flowers, but your idea of doing it with fungi is very attractive too! Very well displayed light gives a warm and smooth color to the image. This is, IMO, one of your most artistic comosition. Just a little nit... the frame doesn't add to the picture.
