Hi Roma!

I discover your gallery with great pleasure. I'm impressed by the diversity and quality of your pictures and first didn't understand why you don't get more attention from other visitors. I then discovered that you didn't write many critiques in the past... That's how TN works!

Now, I have chosen this picture because it attracted my attention because of the superb colours and the strange shapes of these mushrooms. Your picture gives the fine impression that we are in another world, it also could be a submarine one.

Kind regards


Hello Roma,
The composition and the sharpness are really perfect! Not easy with this so tiny fungus. Best regards,
