Hello Ori,
Very nice shot of these young triplets, they do look delicious! (I've got some in my freezer!) Excellent focus and nice composition. I'm amazed that you get them in Israel too!

Hi Ori,

Love the composition, DOF and sharpness. The small mushroom is slightly overexposed.


Agradable composición Ori. Perfecta imagen en la que se puede apreciar el medio en el que se desenvuelve esta especie.
Buena luz y estupendo color.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Ori

A beautifully composed photo of this trio.Very good DOF and POV.The details are very sharp and clear.Well saturated colours too.I hope they tasted as good as they looked.TFS


Hello Ori,
You had a great POV for this beautiful trio. I like the details you caught on all the mushrooms; they are very sharp. Nice natural environment with beautiful autumn colors. There is a little noise in upper BG but this is a minor nit. TFS,

Hi Ori, splendid composition with these delicious mushrooms. Nice colors and good details. Well done, Didier.

Hi Ori,
I know these mushrooms very well from Spain - but I had no idea they grow in Israel, that's a very nice surprise since they are so delicious!

Hi Ori, here they reach, not 20, but 40 Cm. across :)
Nice POV, good DOF, and lovely composition, light quite harsh for my personal taste, TFS.

Hi Ori,
Very nice close-up!
Good detail and nice POV.

Hi Ori,
Great shot. Nicely composed trio, and I think the taste was fine... Unfortunately there's drought here in the whole year, so I only found very few Macrolepiota proceras in 2009.
Best regards from Hungary, László
