Today I tryed to look for a different shot, one of those you do like, but you dont post because you think people wont like it.

Many of the shots I take in the forest are experiments, from time to time, some of them have an artistic result, but it is not the type of image intended to post in TN.

I try to look for the most descriptive ones, as the TOF is clear about learning about nature, and to "teach" about something is very important to be descriptive. I also look for the ones wich may have less technical faults. And at last, if the can also be artistic in some way, I really like it.

When I look at some of the shots of the "seniors" around here, with such amazing subjects and quality I feel impressed and enjoy very much.
I want to thank them for posting and offering this material to "amateurs" like me that with little equipment and great courage try to find some beauty out of the most simple things.
Thank you very much!!!

By the way, this is an Armillaria mellea or Honey Mushroom sunbathing near the river. I already posted info about this mushroom HERE.

Hope you like, but this time I dont care if you dont like :D

What can I say? It is super, artistic shot.Excellent contrast between a river and a mushroom.Very good details and colors.The twinkling in the water are adding more beauty and a special atmosphere to this picture.Cogratulations.

This is great Felipe. I really like artistic shots like this. I am a naturalist, but I am a photographer and artist too, and sometimes I prefer an artistic shot to a simply descriptive one. I think these shots are great for TN as they show offour various talents. This is also very clear and detailed.
Easily good enough for a naturalists book.

A rare view amongst photographers, the backlighting composition. You achieved it very well. The glistening off the water is giving your fungi a walk of fame effect. What a star.!!!
WEll done


Indeed, a beautiful picture.
more of these are welcome

Very delightful image, Felipe. The twinkles in the water are so very lovely and contrast the handsome mushroom very nicely!

Sunbath? That's probably why your mushroom has this beautiful tan. I like the sparkling water and sharpness of the subject. Good shot.

Very nice composition felipe. I like the frame, very nice. Good colours and detail. Good work

The light is Excellent and the water are perfect!
There is nothing to say on this picture !

Very Very Very Very Very Very Very Very WellDone!!!

It's not your typical nature shot, but that's exactly why it works. I love the shimmering water in the background, it adds a real magical touch to the photograph as a whole. Detail captured on the mushroom and surrounding plants is excellent. A creative and wonderful effort! :)

This is a beautiful composition and I like the colors as well. The flare from the water adds a lot of impact as well.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

You are wrong, Felipe. Please post more often those you do like. Only so you will know if we like them.
An artistic post is an excellent complement for a subject already posted like this one. The amateur in me join the amateur in you.
A better than excellent post.

Usted es incorrecto, Felipe. Fijar por favor más a menudo ésos que usted tiene gusto. Solamente usted sabrá tan si tenemos gusto de ellos.
Un poste artístico es un complemento excelente para un tema fijado ya como éste. El aficionado en mí ensambla a aficionado en usted.
Un poste mejor que excelente.
