[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one from the archives.

I though it may be slightly more unusual to look at the underside of a bracket fungi. Taken lying on my back looking upwards having squirmed my way under a fallen branch.

I have cropped out the sky and branches of the tree above, resized, USM'ed and bordered.

This also links in with the pictures of the bracket fungi in this link.

Good shot. There is nice rythm in this shot and the compositon works very well. The long photo makes it work.

Nice crispness.

and... A good idea to crawl in under the branch. Well done. TFS

Interesting POV

Focus and exposure are good. Nothing special about composition except the tight cropping here seems very effective. Exposure for the shadows gave beautiful "rimlight" on the edge of every mushroom. TFS

Hello Emma, this is a very nice shot. The POV is excellent and I love the lighting. Maybe there are some OE spots but it's not to distracting. Lovely crop too.

Hi again.
I like this a lot ... it's a work of art with many warm shades. Well cropped.

Beautiful capture with an excellent composition.
I have many shots of this trametes underneaths, tryed to post them several times but never happy with the crops or composition. You have done very well here, looks cool but elegant, with great details and colours. Very original, well done.

Hello Emma,
Unusual but excellent point of view. good light, soft colors and composition.
Good work
