Hello Felipe,
That's a really grand Boletus calopus! I like your POV and sharpness and colours are excellent. Very nice DOF and light on the background too which makes it stand out.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hello Felipe,
monumental portrait of that beautiful inedible mushroom, looking very three dimensional in good contrast by prefect handling of dim light conditions, and showing its forest bottom habitat in a most beautiful, richly detailed way.
Perfect explanatory notes, too. Thank you!
Best regards,
Peter

Hola,
Este hongo se ve realmente grande!
Y según veo en las notas, realmente lo es.
Imponente captura, donde se muestra tal cual toda su forma con muy buenos detalles y texturas.
Es muy buena la luz y toda la exhuberancia de los alrededores.
Me gusta mucho el verde que aporta a la composición el musgo del fondo sobre el árbol.
Enhorabuena y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,
JM

Hello Felipe,

As always you posted a very nice mushroom shot :-) You are the true mushroom king :-) I like very much this tight framing, great light and exposure - perfect in all parts of the shot. Nice note too...

Best greetings,
Michal

Hola Felipe y Cristina,
Preciosa imagen de uno de los boletus mas fotogénicos que existen, con la nitidez y detalle que nos muetras podríamos echar mano del dicho "vale mas una imagen que mil palabras" es una pena que el retículo del pié por efecto de la compresión no luzca como debiera, la luz esta excelentemente distribuida. Un cordial saludo

Hola Felipe
I like the point of view and the detail of the stalk of this mushroom with great light and background
regards
pedro
