I like this shot of these porcelain mushrooms best of all. The light is perfect and I love the angle, another 5*****

Julie from Le Cannet des Maures, France

J'adore, c'est magnifique !!! En regardant ces photos, on découvre le monde des champignons ave un autre regard, et c'est beau, très beau ! Bravo !

@Julie: Sometimes it is worthwhile to take some time to examin a mushroom from different angles. There are quite a lot of surprises then ... Thank you very much for your appreciation, Julie. Have a wonderfull day and warm greetz for you!

Florence from Paris, France

They are truly beautifully enlightened... they are lamps somehow... that's an extra composition Johan.

@Florence: The species always grows at trees. When you are lucky (like I was) they grow at the right hight so you can look at them from the underside. When the sun is shining through the caps as in this image, it is just paradise opening ... Thanks for your nice comment, Florence.

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

beautiful composition with this background

@Veronique: It was just the most beautiful group of this species I saw so far - couldn't be more perfect for making this kind of images. Greetz, Veronique !

Demo from Villeneuve d, France

@Sylvie49 capture image: Thank you very much for your visit and comment, Sylvie. I hope you don't mind my answer is in English - I do understand French, but writing in Frech I find very difficult.

Elora from Genoa, Italy

beautiful angle! well done!!

@Elora: Thank you very much for your visit and comment, Elora. I'm very glad you like this image.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

Perfect control of the light.

11 Oct 2010 8:23pm

@Ana Lúcia: Light is indeed the most difficult part in the image to get right. With the sun shining through these tiny caps, the whites are incredible strong and tend to burn out completely. Glad you like this image and thanks for commenting, Ana Lucia.

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

Wonderful framing, and extremely beautiful!

12 Oct 2010 10:07am

@Julie Brown: This particular group of mushrooms was so extremely well positioned on the branch to make images. The right hight, enough room left to get under the caps with the tripod and lens, the right angle to the light etc ... Just got very lucky to find those at the right time.

carla from leeuwarden, Netherlands

Deze serie is geweldig.

13 Oct 2010 7:11am

@carla: Van harte dank hiervoor, Carla. Het was de ideale groep op de ideale plaats op het ideale tijdstip ... en ik had voldoende tijd om alles te bekijken en te proberen. De mogelijkheden waren zowat eindeloos zodat het moeilijk werd om de beste te kiezen :-)

Charles from Bruxelles, Belgium

Grandiose !!!

@Charles: Thank you very much for your visit and comment, Charles.
