Coprinus disseminatus Hey guys, i saw this bunch of fungi when i was in the streekbos in the netherlands with my father. we went of the path and saw whole bunches of them. it was littered there. <br />
<br />
i am curious to know what you guys think of this shot. as i am still learning and am not that great with fungi. but learned some new things and got some tips to keep in mind, from my father. in my eyes that seems to have helped.

  1. I like the image a lot, Rudolph. Strong points are the composition and exposure. Also good job getting at "eye" level.

    If you really need criticism on this one (I think it is great overall), a minor point could be that the image is a bit soft, the main subject does not have a point that is fully sharp. More like 95% sharp. This can also be intentional and can actually work great to set an atmosphere in the image, so it's a matter of taste.

    Another idea, slightly controversial: some people spend some effort in "staging" the scene. For example, they would use a brush to clean the fungi of the debris. This again is a matter of taste, to go for the pure natural results, or to brush it up a little. There is no right or wrong either way when it concerns plants or fungi.

    1. i am really thankful for the compliments. i am happy that i am now at a point where it sometimes does work out. it isnt a second nature yet, but because of the feedback i begin to get it in my mind.

      yeah the picture is indeed a bit soft. i had it 100% sharp, but there was a moment when i needed to reach to something. and i thought i had touched my camera, as it was on a ricebag. but it didnt seem like that. but when i looked at the shots at home i saw it wasnt 100% sharp. it could also be that i just didnt focus correct but atleast it didnt ruin the picture.

      i indeed know of this clening up the scene. but i personal prefer it to have it the way it is when i get there. i do some staging, sometimes more then other times. but i do not clean fungi with a brush for instance. as that isnt the way i want to show this kind of things. but indeed there is no wpright or wrong. it is taste and style.

      i am really happy to be on the homepage by the way. it is an honour for me.

  2. Rudolph, I can see you learned a lot from me to create a beautiful foreground. It is now moss, but later in the year you can use the colored leaves for good use. Really done, and congratulates that the recording is on the homepage. I can assume it gives you a boost. Posted 2 months ago
    1. also thank you for the compliments to you, dad. i am looking forward to be using more coloured kinds of leaves and mosses in the fall. i think it can add greatly. thank you, it indeed gives me a boost. i now know that i am on the right path. and to add to it i have pleasure doing this kind of photography.

''Coprinellus disseminatus'' is a species of agaric fungus in the family Psathyrellaceae. Unlike most other coprinoid mushrooms, ''C. disseminatus'' does not dissolve into black ink in maturity. The species was given its current name in 1939 by Jakob Emanuel Lange. The mushroom is edible.
