Very nice shot of the Coprinus. Very good focused mushroom and perfect blurred background. TFS

Hi Matt, this is a lovely fungi photo.
The soft colours and the shallow DOF are great.
Well composed and good POV.
Excellent work.

Wow, Matt, that's such a beautiful arrangement.
The moshroom is so fragile and seems to have a metallic hat. The grass with the waterdrops is wonderful and I enjoy the softly background, nothing is disturbing. That's a perfect shot, thanks, very well done

Hola Matt, lograste una composición encantadora, me gusta la dualidad del fondo y excelente selección del color de la línea del marco. Una imagen de un pequeño hongo con un gran toque naturalmente romántico, mágico y contemplativo. Indudablemente mi favorita. Saludos cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*

A tric for fungi: if you focus the stem inestead of the cap, the DOF plane will be on the middle of the fungus, getting most of it into focus. In this case only the half of the cap near to the cam is really in focus.
Is is a very beautiful shot, getting the best lights and textures of this Coprinus plicatilis.

This is truly a beautiful shot Matt. Great detail.

Hello Matt.

Excellent image, very good details and colors.

Jose Luis.

Nice shot. I love the colours and the shapes. Excellent composition too. Thanks for sharing.
