Interesting specimens - where these in the bird sanctuary area?
Pity some animals got to them first.

Yes Kate this was taken on one of the nature trails at the RSPB, I got some funny looks for being one of the only people not taking pictures of birds :-p

Not a bad pictorial record at all. There are fungi in various states and some are less sharp than others due to depth of field. You could have used f8, probably the smallest aperture on your compact,but then the shutter speed would extend.

You could try coming in closer on a smaller group and choosing an angle where they were all in the same focal plane.

I think Paul's pretty much summed it up.

The only thing that I'd add would be that some fill in flash might have lifted the colours a bit.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm brand new to photography and just started a photography course and this was one of my images from a project I'm doing so the criticism really helps xD

Apologies, i suppose criticism does sound a bit negative, which wasn't the intention Smile
