Hello Hasan,
What a wonderful close-up image of this beautiful oyster mushroom. I would love to try and eat one sometime, but I only eat mushrooms that I am 100% positive of their ID. This particular specimen has a rather unique shape, as it reminds me of a recliner with an umbrella overhead to shade you from the sun:)
I like the low POV you chose and the focus is sharp. The white balance is perfect rendering natural colors and overall composition is very attractive. Great job!!
