Shot this funghi growing from a fallen tree in the forest, on very low light. A bit of sharpening required on the funghi and I like the way the background turned out !
I really like the idea of this shot - good lighting coming through the mushroom and getting a good low angle to show that aspect in the shot! The bright and colourful background also works well to offset against the more drab colourings of the main subject.
Lighting on the background areas though seems a bit harsh and I guess that is a result of slight overexposure in those areas so that you could expose under the darker mushroom better.
Its something that in the field I think would only be solved with 2 exposures and a tripod to steady the camera so that you could then blend the two together (one for the mushroom and the other for the background) into a single composit shot - though its not something easily taken in the field if your working without a tripod.
As it stands you went for the mushroom to be exposed correctly and in this case I feel that it was the right choice to make - well done!
I love this one!!! Great composition, Great lightening, Very outstanding angle.
