Another from the Achive this one well over a year old. Taken at the end of one of our tree fields at work growing next to several rows of Siver birch Tree's Betula pendula I rember the day well it was cold wet dark and horrible and we were digging some trees up for a job. This was taken in very dark wet conditions so evry thing was soaking so there are some highlights especially on the right one from the on camera flash I used to light the scene.
I am certain it is some form of Milkcap Lactarius not sure which, closest I have are L. hepaticus and L. britannicus both do not seem as dark as these ones.
Shadows and Highlights to try and relieve the heavy shadow caused by the flash.
Burntool to some of the flash highlights to darken down the white areas some?

Hmmm a very interesting mushroom.The contrast between mushroom and grass make this photo better.Also the dead leafes in the BG is an another beauty.A very nice picture Robert,Have a nice holiday and new year.

Hi Robert,
This shot has much better detail, DOF, and clarity compared to your previous fungi post using nearly the same settings. I can see why you are frustrated. Your flash exposure here did an excellent job on the colors, they look great. I just have no idea(electronic glitch) what might cause your camera problem. Sounds like you are gonna fix it with something much, much, better anyway. So that probably means your gonna swamp us with macro shots then?
