mushroom by jtd mushroom by jtd
Deep inside the forest... it was a rainy day, thus dark. I had to put the camera on the ground, and I wasn't able to see the contents of the LCD screen properly.

This mushroom was the only one around. I'm glad that I've stumbled upon the little thing.

This is so soft and so pretty. You have a nice gallery.

Beautiful shot, marred only slightly by the fact that the leaves to the right are better in focus than the mushroom... very nice though.

New life emerge from all that are dead and in recycle. You captured it well with the focus and blurr for the background, gives it depths, and a close up personal to look closer at wild life. New born.
boomslice Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2003
Great depth of field. Didn't I comment on this one before?
In any case, it's a great photo.

<OK>.. a litle mirror help sometimes
bren Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2003
NICE shot! I love the look of it...with the leaves. It DOES look foresty (foresty? *L*)

you don't know how many times I've put my camera on the ground....trying to get a shot of something...and not being able to see through the lil window viewer. And I can never seem to capture anything (it's always focused on something the background). blah! YOU got it just right. :)

Very nice. I do like the focus you choosed for that photo and how good the colors combine together.
klowne Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2003
That is beautiful.

I love the colours, the focus and everything. It's hard to believe you weren't able to put much into the composition - the way the green is above the mushroom gives a very nice balance to the picture.

Personally overall I think the dead leaf feeding into the mushroom which is spreading the green out the top shows it in its environment and gives a story of the mushroom's place in the forest. Then again I might just be 'seeing things' again. ;)

Well done, incredible shot.

Beautiful nature shot.
I like the center of focus and the background creating the atmosphere so well

Shouldn't there by a caterpillar smoking a pipe on top of this? Great pic.

Great shot, shooting blind or not.
Love the background/DOF.
Great work :)
anhdres Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2003  Professional Filmographer
great shot. il love these short-deep-of-field shots.
:bows:long life to open diafs!
liike Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2003
lovely photo , though...mayby a little bit more focus on the mushroom !?

it seems that most of the focus is on the dead leaf to the right...

oh , and one more thing...i love the colors and light in this shot , it´s amazing :D
jtd Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2003
The mushroom is in focus, but the DOF is extremely small. This is due to the aperture of F2, as it was very dark. So the focal plane is a bit weird.
liike Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2003
ahhh...i see...
btw , i´m gonna submit imho , a very cool eyemacro of my eye :)

very neat in my opinion... :D

so keep your eyes open :p
