Hi Emma, I haven't got a clue what kind of fungi this is. They look kind of alien. Very nice photograph, very well composed! Good work!

I've tried to find it on a Dutch website, but this one is probably not comon in The Netherlands.
What a story, it almost made me forget I had to look at the photo too. Which is really good. Sharpness, color and light are all spot on. I really like the diagonal composition.

Whatever the fungus, it sure is attractive, Emma. You have captured the bunch of them with great accuracy. The colours are lovely and the picture is so sharp I feel like extending a hand and touching them!
Your story of the tree's history makes an interesting read.
TFS and bye.
Funky and nice Emma. The fungi are nice. But for me the WA makes this shot interesting and fun. IMHO I find the light shot in the bg a bit distracting, though, and some cloning or cropping some from the top would help.
Hi emma I think I can name this fungus in 1, have a look at these Google images http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&q=rhodotus&btnG=Search+Images
The one in my books was white but the cap texture looked right so I tried google images with the name Rhodotus palmatus Wrinkled Peach and they look pretty much like yours. Aparently a good test is the ease with wich the cap skin peels off.
Not posting much because I cannt trust the colours and brightness on my system as there seems to be a problem between the monitor and the comp :0(((
hope this ident is of use yours Robert

I don't know very much of these mushrooms, but technically it's very good shot. Light on mushrooms, DOF and sharpness is excellent. The only improvement i see is in the top and has been touched already.

It sure is a very interesting story behind this photo! Well done with the white balance job - it looks like it worked very well. Nice colours and good light.
Thanks for sharing, both the picture and the story!

Although you say it is not a fantastic photo I find it very correct and descriptive, showing a very interesting specie which I will surely remember if I ever find it, I hope so, they are really beautiful.
Thanks very much to you and Robert for the info.

The mushrooms look like very delicious! So I guess they are poisonous then...
Lovely colours in this fine composition, very well balanced and with good lines...
An awesome story too!!!

Nice photo mine are poor, actually it really likes dead elm and has become rare in the uk for that reason. So growing on beech is quite unusual at least as far as I know
Another interesting picture. This time I especially like original composition with mushrooms seen from fea different points of view. Also the DOF and colours are nice, and the note very interesting.
By the way, how big were these specimens?
