Boletus edulis @ 20mm

Boletus edulis (NL: Gewoon eekhoorntjesbrood / EN: Penny bun, Porcino, Cep / DE: Gemeine Steinpilz, Fichten-Steinpilz, Herrenpilz, Edelpilz / FR: Cèpe de Bordeaux).
You will easily recognise the same specimen as in yesterday's post. The differences in both images illustrate the different effect one can create using a different lens. Off course both images are made at different distances to the mushroom. The wide-angle image (this one) has a more environmental approach while the tele-image (yesterday) is more focussed on the mushroom itself. Both ways can create very interesting images.

I like both images, but really like this one. Yet to get a group together, life has been too busy, but that is better than not busy enough in this financial climate. However it is still on my list of things to achieve :)

Interessant hoe je verschillende effekten kunt bereiken naargelang wat je wilt beklemtonen. Mooie herfstsfeer!

@christine: Het was echt eens een heel bewust experimentje om het verschillend effect van de lenzen naast mekaar te zetten. Met de groothoek maak ik meestal enkel landschapsfoto's, maar het heeft ook wel mogelijkheden naar dit soort foto's toe. Je zet er een soort mee in de context van zijn hele biotoop - wat dus ook bijzonder interessant kan zijn. Iets om verder uit te proberen in de toekomst.
