This is Borowik Szlachetny (Boletus Edulis). This photo was taken on Saturday, during our visit in the forest in Belina near Wloszczowa. We were there about 3,5 hours. During first 1,5 hour we found about 5-6 fungi. There were no fungi, because the dry forest (no rain). But we found one place where there was a little more water (sqare about 150m x 150m). And there we found... all the basket - maybe 100 - 150. Incredible :)
Thanks for visiting.

Using AFS, 1) created layer (control J, etc.), 2) increased light using shadow/highlight feature 3) increase sharpness with unsharpen mask, 4 added mask layer to created layer that is modified by shadow/highlight and sharpening, 5) select paint brush tool with 100% opacity, 6) paint our entire layer except for stem and underside of mushroom, and 7) merge layers. None of this effects the other parts of the picture for which the mask/paint brush have removed the changes to those areas that did not need highlighted or sharpened. Hope you like.
