Great DoF, sharp and neat blurry BG.
Nice natural colors.
Well composed picture.
Was this handheld at 1/25 second? There is good sharpness...I don't think your lens is stabilized is it?
I really like your composition here Niek. It is nicely balanced in colors, tones and the asymmetry of shapes. I can just visualize you lying down getting this shot! I guess you were able to brace the camera on the ground?? Nice work.

The classic mushroom picture! When I think of a mushroom, the first ones I imagine is these red and white. Nice close-up of this pair with good details, exposure and contrast. The leafs and peat-moss really adds to the composition. TFS.

Diving into the shoebox again. I dont mind because this archived relic is a fine shot.
The composition is great, but I really think that you nailed the lighting pretty well. The colours are rich, the details are sharp, and the BG (although not completely OOF) compliments the toad stools very well.
Good work and TFS.
PS. Sorry for the short critique, but Im having problems again with the cellulites and cannot sit at the PC for long.

Excellent close-up of these amazing mushrooms. Their beauty is reflected perfectly. Superb natural colours, great sharpness and details. The ground and leaves of it decorate the shot nicely. Light BG highlights the main subject very well. Nice artistic work, My best regards and TFS.

This is a very beautiful post and a fantastic note! It toally captured me! Definately much better than a scientific note about it again! ;)
The picture itself is gorgeous, especially for a first-time fungi shooter :)
The low POV is very nice and works excellently, the colors are charming and the DOF used here is exceptional.
The nice contrast between the mushrooms and pretty much everything else is also very good and the composition is lovely.
Very well done, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

Mooie jongens maar naar mijn goesting een beetje te tight qua compositie onderaan het beeld.
Paddestoelen zijn wel heel scherp geportretteerd.

Una tradicional vista de estos vistosos hongos Niek con agradable punto de vista que permite apreciar de buenos detalles de sus texturas y colores.
El encuadre respetando la regla de los tercios colabora con la composición de la presentación, que tiene además buen foco, agudeza y correcta iluminación.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

The anwser to your question is: Here, where I live! And my question is: Where are the good old days where the sun was hidden and rain was falling?
Lovely composition, beautiful soft light and a pretty mushroom.
TFS, José M.

Een hele goede kompositie en prachtige kleuren.
De belichting is perfect en ook de scherpte.
Het warm licht geeft de finishing touch.
Ps. ik lees het bericht van jmp en hij heeft gelijk hoor, het is hier kurkdroog en het moet dringend eens regenen. Laatste regendag was ergens in november en dat waren ook maar 2 dagen sinds april 2006.Ik weet dat het niet leuk is als het grijs is en wekenlang regend, maar als je hier woont kan je je er echt op verheugen op een flinke bui.

you found a very nice pair of this specimen, as beautiful they are they also dangerous. The close up is very well composed. Love the placing of your main subjects, lovely view of the enviroment they grow in. The POV, colors and the details are very good.

Beautiful subject and well captured, Niek. Good lighting and DoF works well. I'm jealous.

Super contrast and focus..
I like the sharpness..and the frame too
I found Your photo while fulfilling the "Fly Agaric" theme. Composition- and sharpness-wise an exceptional one, DOF and background's also great. Everything's nice for me - except for the color balance. By my opinion the colors are a bit strange, having more red and magenta than the optimal - that's why I made my WS version.
Otherwise everything's great on the pic, the note's useful, so I give my 2 points. Tfs and have a nice Sunday.
