Hi. This is Scarlet Elf Cup and I see it as a 1960s Seat straight out of the movies.

Anyway, I struggled to tone down the highlights on this one and it's still not quite there.

I'll upload some of the versions in case I've chosen the wrong one.

Such a pretty fungi, (I saw them for the first time this year) they really do stand out from their surroundings. I like the format and composition of this one. Version 1 is a big improvement on V2!

I like the shroom in v1 because it seems to have an inner glow. Prefer the edges in v3, but would like to see that bit of red at the top right side cloned out.

1960s seat? Your giving your age away.

V3 for me but the problem is you want to see the best bits of all 3 in the one shot.. Smile

Version 3 for me - the background has more depth and mystery. In #1 I'm not struck on the vivid day-glo green moss on the right. But 3 is a cracker.

Beautiful colour combination; I think v3 is perhaps the best image as a whole
