Hi James, welcome to EPZ! We can give you lots of critique and advice - I'm afraid the tea and cake you'll have to provide yourself (lol) Grin

The point of view on this image is brilliant, lovely and low. You've managed to get really close and capture the fungi beautifully sharp. The horizon is on a slight slope, but that could have been on purpose (a slight anti clockwise rotation would soon fix that), but that is a minor niggle. Smile

I hope you enjoy being here, any problems don't be afraid to ask! Smile
(I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work).

Thank you, I will keep that in mind next time i am shooting low macro shots and try to keep the horizon more or less straight. Smile

you can always adjust the horizon afterwards...like the low angle..might perhaps crop some of the very light sky out and add a touch of contrast.

well done

The only problem with doing this afterwards is that i dont have a decent photo editing software such as photoshop elements, i only have Hp photosmart essentials, this is extremely basic :/

Hi James, welcome to EPZ and the Junior Gallery from me too Smile

I appreciate that you must've got down really quite low for this shot, but wonder if you had rested the camera on the floor, whether you might have not had to include the sky at all? That way, we would be able to concentrate on the wonderful fungi without the distraction of either a bland sky or a wonky horizon! Smile

Thank you for this comment all though im not too sure if i know what you mean, do you mean angle the camera more from the top to get rid of the horizon all together?

Yes - I'm thinking if you put the camera on the ground, then the grass would fill the frame, so the sky wouldn't be in there at all Smile
