Personally I would have removed the small strands of whatever on the first one but very nice set non the less. Especially like number 3.

I like number 3 as well they are really tasty yum yum. Also their baby brother the shaggy ink cap. Have you seen my Chicken of the woods on my portfolio they are good to eat also.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Very effective low viewpoints, like being in a fairies movie!.... (I have to see quite a lot of fairy movies, so I know what I'm talking about here).

Thanks Nigel, I was in the leaf litter most of the time, low and dirty

I like the last one and the opening image but I feel the opening image is a little flat and needs lifting and brightening. But that's just my opinion

Really like number 3 with the narrow depth of field. Might be worth adding a dark vignette? Number 2 is interesting, and a good image, as I haven't seen this "in the flesh". Thanks for posting.

The Staghorn fungus, isnt that common, I've only ever seen 2 small clumps in 5 years of going to the site in Berkshire, its found mainly in pine forests.

Really like the natural lighting on these, it feels proper deep woodland in mid-Autumn - the soft background in no.1 makes the image for me
