[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While doing a photo shoot in some local native wetland bush I found this mushroom ( I don't know the ID) I liked the tiny spiders webs on the gills of the fungi.

I had to get right down on the ground to get up under this fungi. While there a cyclist came by and thought I was in distress. The only distress I felt was he had a small dog and I thought it might squash my subject.

Photoshop, I applied a little USM, resized and framed

Good shot Sue, the gills look like a concertina. Well captured, and I like the cobweb attached to it also. I think it also looks good centred like this too. Well done.

Hi Sue,
An excellent POV on this shot. The color and detail are superb. This shot really brings out the texture in the gills. I like the tiny webs too. Very Nice Shot!

Hello Sue, I like most the low & upward POV that shows the gills very well with a bit of backlight shining through..Great DOF and detail with the web strands adding interest, Well done!

What a nice and interesting shot that you have well done ! Composition and point of view are unusual. Transparancy and the shape of gills are beautiful. Thanks for sharing Sue.

I like this POV Sue! Looks like kind of postindustrial umbrella ;-) Good DOF, pastel colours and parts of spider's web are nice bonus. Good post!

Hi Sue

Good close shot. Excellent details, down to the cob web. Nice light and colour. Looks a bit noisy, but well done all the same. Thanks.

Hello Sue,

This is a nice shot. Very well exposed, sharp details and great POV. Well done & TFS!


Hi Sue,
what lovely story together with that interesting funghi.
I like you POV and it would be nice to see another photo of the funghi - this one with you, laying infront of it. Hahaha.
I guess this would bring more than 100 points!
But anyway, I like to see a little light through your moshroom, very nice, thanks

hi like the way you have this photo .
lord potty may be able to help you with a name

Hey Sue,

I've been a bit out of it so I've got some catching up to do. It's such a pitty that we all have to work !! This is a really facinating shot. I love your POV and the patterns in the background. Excellent work Sue

Excelente textura, muito boa macro, bom ângulo.
Ótima foto, com composição

Great capture Sue, v good low perspective on this with good light. Great post well done.

Hi Sue.. Great POV! I like mushroom shots with well displayed gills especially and this is a perfect example :-) The webs add an interesting element. Very nicely done.

Hi Sue,

If you see my photo's, you will see that I like also the low & upward POV. That shows the gills very well. It's a beautiful fungi. Is that correct when i say: "She is not so sharp?" POV and BG are oké. Colours are naturel. Good job. Regards and TFS Bob
