I don't know if edible are these mushrooms. I've never gathered them. All mushrooms add colouring for autumn forest.

Hello Pawel,
I don't know what species these are but they're very beautiful and I love your low POV showing great details and beautiful colours. A very fine composition too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Pawel,
This is a very good lens for this kind of low point of view fungi work.
And you used it very well actually.
There's that specific autumn light. More an indian summer light:-)
Furthermore very well composed and a nicely done out-of-focus background.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Pawel,

Fantastic photo.
Beautiful colours with excellent light.
Focus and composition are superb.

Hi Pawel,
Excellent capture of these beautiful mushrooms in nice autumn lighting. Composition is great with good sharpness of details and natural colours.

Hi Pawel.
I am amazed with use of lights and aperture value. You managed to separate the main subject cute pair of mushrooms from impressive blurred BG perfectly. I also like diagonal composition of the image created by incliner border of sharply reproduced area. My compliments and TFS.
P.S. Thanks for congratulations on my new equipment. It is really significant event in my life.

Hello Pawel,

You have shown well the mushrooms against the blurry background. As you have chosen well the DOf both of them are kept in focus and therefore shown in good details.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Pawel,

I am against fungi picking away.
In the Netherlands there are 1986 fungi specie on the red list.
I am only photographed them.
These specie are not edibe by the way.
good low composition and dof.
The fungi's are a little overexposed.
Beautiful olours too.

Hello Pawel, I like the bright and sharp fungi against a beautiful blurred background. I wouldn't eat them but they look appetizing! Thank you,
