[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of last [if not last] pictures this year. I had got free time last week, but I didn't take any picture. Weather was awfull - grey days, mist, darkness. I wasn't in forest at all. Today was first nice day. Sunny and quite warm, blue sky. We went to Zdrowie Park to seek out something to photograph. Hard times - after last frost even fungi are dead. We're walking few hours and founded three or maybe four species of fungi. Not too many I must say. At least we spended time well :-)

Well done, Jacob

Hello Grzegorz,
I understand exactly how you feel - you strain your eyes and find nothing at all at this time of year - still the days are getting lighter now so there is hope!! Anyway, you manage to get a beautiful sharp shot of these old fungi on an old tree stump. Very nice composition and the colours are wonderful!
TFS and best wishes for 2007, Ulla

Hi Greg,
Nice soft low light in this shot. Very well composed and framed. Amazing that there are still any fungi growing there. A mild winter so far??? Beautiful subtle colors, and great textures in the fungi. Hey it is just good to get out and get in a nice walk even if you don't get a good shot.
Happy New Year.

La armonía de colores, sumado a un gran punto de vista, el DOF que brinda no sólo foco sobre los hongos sino también el apropiado fondo, conforman una bella composición.
Mis mejores deseos Grzegorz para el 2007... Ricardo

The harmony of colors, added to a great point of view, DOF that not only offers focus on the mushrooms but also the appropriate bottom, they conform a beautiful composition.
My best wishes Grzegorz for 2007... Ricardo

Nice low light and subtle tones of colour.
Excellent work,TFS

Ver estos hongos me hizo recordar una pequeña aldea con sus tejados, al borde de un precipicio.
Bellos colores y una cuidada presentación, con una nitidez admirable.

Fajna grzybowa grupa. Przyjemne, przygaszone, swiatlo.
A poza tym - udanego Sylwestra i wszystkiego Najlepszego w Nowym Roku!

Hello Greg

Another mini city! This one looks as if it has been built on the side of a mountain in a rain forest region! I do love your fungi shots! Congrats my friend. A beautiful sight. I wish you and Joanna all the best for 2007! :-)

The specialis of moody tones :)
Very nice crisp quality to show this beauties. I love you backgrounds, you always manage them so beautifully...
I am sad you have so awful weather, I will miss you nice competence on fungi until next year, although I am sure you will surprise me with some other shot sooner or later ;)
Best regards, MF.

Moody work, Greg.
Especially the matching brown BG is attractive...

Hello Grzegorz
I love this picture for its sharpness, beautiful POV, DOF and perfect composition.
Excellent job.
Thank you very much for sharing.
Best wishes

Sorry, smile tomorrow.

Perfectly composed shot with great management of available lights. Mycena galericulata again, most probably, old and maybe a bit frozen specimens. Another possibility is Mycena maculata, but the top of the cap (of that specie) is usually darker than the other parts of the cap, different from what I see on Your photo, although color of fungi might be very varied in cases like this, most of all if the fruitbodies are frozen a bit. Excellent pic overall.
Best regards, László
