[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am not very sure about the id of this beauties, maybe Clytocybe could be a posuble genus, but did not finf a right id.

Althought this is a mycological shot for clasification purposes, I found this image interesting.
This little beauty seems to reflect the autumn light of the forest specially well, creating a strange exposure on the photo.

It has no light or levels adjust, only crop, slightly decreased saturation and unsharpen mask.

Hope you like too!

Hi Felipe,
Lovely fungi picture. Nice smooth surface on top side and intricate gill on the underside. Great sharpness and well exposed photo. Very well done.

Hi Felipe,
I do like the exposure and fine details here..Composition is perfect :)
Things are beginning to dry out today, some sun this morning..but more rain forecast all this week.
Very well done.

Que buena y clara imagen!
Excelente la vista por ambos lados de este hongo, lograron un gran trabajo con la escasa luz disponible en el momento.
Muy buena la definición y foco, especialemte interesante es la intrincada formación laminar de la parte interna.
Enhorabuena y gracias por compartir la foto.
Un gran saludo,

Hola Felipe & Cristina: Ni idea de la especie ya que yo conozco lo básico en hongos pero creo haberla visto alguna vez. Excelente enfoque de la parte inferior del sombrero con bonito efecto óptico jeje Destaca el color del hongo con el fondo, a juego y elegante. Saludos.

This is really beautiful. The strange forest light has left you with some wonderful colour tones. There is so lovely texture captured in this shot as well



Hola Felipe y cristina.

Sin tanta calidad, yo tambien he subido una seta del reves, esta la veo con una grandisima nitidez.


Hola Felipe,

More than 3 years had gone after You uploaded the pic, but nobody helped You in proper ID specification. So I did: You photographed Clitocybe phyllophila (Pers.) P. Kumm., quite easy to identify due to the "navel" on the top of the cap, stem texture and the gills. Be careful, this is a heavily toxic species causing muscarine syndrome, caused death quite a few times also.

The photo itself is wonderful, interestingly the composition is better with the overthrown cap than without it - I don't know the reason, but I myself also experienced it sometimes. Top notch sharpness, gill textures, details; and choosing soft sepia tone was better for these fungi, because Clitocybe species aren't vary varied in chromatism. Excellent job, congrats and tfs.

Best regards, László
