The Contrast (24)
Thank you very much for the comments on my previous post. It was a 5-year-old old photo done with my (at that time new) bridge camera, without flash, in Hungary. In contrast with that one, here is a new photo taken yesterday, in Ireland, with my very old pocket compact, with flash, in Ireland. This is the reason of the title. :-)
ID: Tricholomopsis rutilans (Schaeff.) Singer, wearing the strange English name 'Plum-And-Custard'. Quite common on the whole Northern hemisphere on dead coniferous wood. Workshop photo shows the cap surface.
Photo: taken on the Curragheen riverside, near Cork City, on dead wood of spruce (Picea sp.). Shutter priority exposure mode, flash, -1,3 underexposure, manual white balance, focus: spot metering. PP: moderate cropping, slight level adjustment, canvas, after re-sizing selective sharpening and watermark.
