Taken in the forest right after the rain.
I used close-up lens to get this one.

Finland offers a quite short but intensive mushroom season - great for pictures and for the cooking pots..

Beautiful image Shir.Nice detail and colour.Good point of view and composition.Any information on the species?

Nice detailed close up and the water drops add a nice touch Shir. Taken from a nice low angle and good DoF, a couple of areas of overexposure on the stem, but very nice all the same.

Wonderful photo of mushrooms, with all the elements required, but the one that sets the tone for me is the lighting. Also, as Steve mentioned, information on the species would have been nice. Thank you for sharing.

Great mushroom photo Shir!
I like mushrooms photos but this one is just great!
The colors are perfect and the contrast is great.


Just beautiful light. Bravo! Nice macro.

Gorgeous pic! Love the contrasting colors, the DOF and the droplets of water on the mushrooms.
The nice light coming from the left really adds to this pic, it makes it alive.

Beaucoup de douceur grāce au fin film d'eau sur les champignons...

I just love this hygroscopic textures on mushrooms after the rain and also the winter sun&shadows, a great one. Maybe should be rotated a bit? Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful shots,liked the golden honey color,you got it with good details.

I love this wet look mushroom photo. The shiny colors of their tops is a nice contrast to the tiny mosses surrounding.

Great quality of light here. I can't believe you got such good detail using the 18-70 mm. Good job.


Simply an incredible and beautiful capture. I love it.
