A Sombrero for Felipe

I know nothing about fungi and mushroom. I do not even know what differentiate them.
Yesterday I went to Ecomuseum and I saw this little thing in a vivarium for salamanders. By seeing it I immediately thought of Felipe (extramundi) for obvious reasons.

Thank you for looking at it.

Nice one Luc, even I think I'd wear one of these. Felipe is going to love it. Isn't is amazing? It looks like the hat has been woven together with quite intricate stitching. Very pretty too.
Good composition, a very good macro! Very sharp and detailed, excellent lighting too. Well done.
Very well done and thank you!

Such a pretty fungus you have captured, Luc. The details are so clear, showing off the exquisite and delicate designs. Interesting shape and beautiful colors and light. Congratulations and merci pour le partage. : )

Hi Luc,
Good detail and colours. Great POV and sharpness.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Have a great weekend.

I love the simplicity in this composition Luc! Excellent and very interesting detail on the hood of the mushroom, you sure know how to use this close-up lens!
Very well done Luc, have a great weekend.

Luc bonjour, présentation trés épurée de couleurs harmonieuses. La structure de ce petit champignon est particuliérement photogenique. Mes félicitations et bon weekend, Didier.

Hello Luc,
this is a very beautiful mushroom. I like it very much. Excellent macro, colorfull with very great sharpness and very good details. Very good job. WEll done. Thanks for posting.

Well my friend, you definately found a "fashioned" hat for this season. My wife is here looking at it and says she like very much for a dinner dress :)
Th textured looks like an old dryed Coprinus plicatilis, although the dont are a rough as this one.
thanks very much for thinking about me and bringing this beauty toall of us. Best wishes, my friend.

Very artfully done Luc!
Since finding TN and seeing Felipe's fungi pictures for the first time, I have been facinated and amazed by this whole different world I had previously never considered as a photographic subject.
Felipe and his work is awesome, and so is yours!

excellent composition and lighting,
good contrast with blur background.
Very well done and have a nice weekend!

Hi Luc

Wow.... this is a stunning piece of work. Nicely composed, good use of light, lovely depth of colour with clear, sharp detail. Well done. TFS.

I have never seen so many EXCELLENT mushroom shots as here on TN, and this is awonderful example, one of the best. The lines on the fringe almost seem to make this sombrero swing. A very dynamic shot - of a mushroom for crying out loud! I have seen good bird shots that seemed static in comparison...
Excellent capture, no nit.

Hi Luc,
a beautiful picture of the lovely fungi.
It's well seen from the dark BG.
Great POV and very good details.
Great work, brother.

Wonderful capture Luc!

The contour of this specimen is quite remarkable, and would indeed make an amazing chapeau! ;-)

Excellent BG, texture and colors.

Thank you.

Excellent. And a sombrero it is! Great DOF and detail Luc. Well done.

Hello Luc, this is a very nice shot. The form of the fungi is very pleasing to the eye. I really like hte black BG. I htink I would clone out that little lump on the bottom right of the frame. Apart from that it's great! Well done.

Interesting detail of the mushroom. Perfect light and sharpness.

Hi Luc, this is the most amazing mushroom I've ever seen. It's so striking, I like it. You've done it great justice with your exposure, sharpness and composition. Great detail and a lovely diffuse BG. Very nicely caught :)
