Hello Christian. This is a strange yet very beautiful flower. Your picture is very well composed and the DOF & POV are excellent. The exposure is spot on. Very good! TFS!

Looks like coral indeed or maybe like candelabrum. Weird shapes. Your photo is amazing - another from series of microlandscapes. I like composition, especially ivy leaves. Very good work Christian!

Your flower shots are wonderful Christian!
DOF,details and composition are perfect.Thanks for sharing.

Taz, Great light and I like the coral-like structure of the Rameria very much..The green setting contrasts your subject very well also. Excellent details - Very well done!!

Nice fungi shot Christian. (some people seem to think it is a flower) I have seen these Ramaria here, but not as big. Glad you mentioned that they are toxic. That makes it a very useful note in my book.
Well done, good work.

A beautiful composition. Excelent work.
Une belle image. Fantastique, Bravo, bien vue.


Jolie photo Christian. Je ne connaissais pas ce champignon mais maintenant que je le connais il ne me donne pas plus envie que cela à manger.
Bravo ! Belle composition.

This is really interesting and is just like coral. A great shot, perfect composition and the framing works really well here. I personally find the (nettle?) leaf in the bg quite distracting, not too much though.
Thanks for posting.

Christian, great sharpness in this very nice shot.

The slightly blurred bg produces a nice contrast.

A great job.

Excellent specimen. I have come across some of this and never had my cam :(
As usual, a very nice composition, and perfect descriptive point of view, a fantastic one for the gallery.
I dared to make a WS. Hope you like!

Hi Christian,
your photos are always good, with righ exposure, you are a good photographer.
Only a thing: considering the perfect composition with suitable frame, to be perfect at 100% you should write the epithet of the specie with small letter.
Ramaria pallida rather than Ramaria Pallida.
This is the rule which is in force for all kingdoms of alive beings.
