Fabulous PoV, worth every ache and pain! The lighting is excellent on the 'shroom which is beautifully detailed while the background blur is nice but undistracting. A special image from something that so many of us wouldn't even notice as we walked past!

Straight out of 'Land Of The Giants'. A very good perspective.

Another stunner but I'd make the border narrower.
Our judges recently have been suggesting no border or just two pixel.
Just a suggestion - I used to always add borders.
Great pov - fantastic image.

Thanks Kate
I don't think I'd enter this for a competition, but would certainly tone down the border if I did. Smile

I don't think judges will ever decide on borders, I rarely put borders on prints, but a couple of points with projected images ...

Anything photographed on a dark background will almost always look better with a narrow border, otherwise it tends to merge into the black background of the projector.
Anything less than three pixels may not actually appear as a straight line, but takes on a twisted effect, which can be quite distracting.

Not that I know anything, but I prefer this to your previous image Peter and would think it was a stronger contender for your club comp. Looking back, what I think spoils your previous version are the light highlights which make the lighting look (to me) unnatural. On this image I'd crop a little off the bottom and, hey presto, a winner, I reckon! Smile

Impressive perspective.
I got marked down by one judge for putting a border around an image. He spent more time talking about that than the picture (but perhaps it was an terrible picture. Grin). I agree with you, you do need a narrow border.

Now that has totally thrown me!

I discounted this one as being a bit too "arty" for the rather conservative judges, now I might have to try them both. I'm a bit hesitant to take too much of risk as I'm only two points ahead, with two wildlife togs in 2nd and third. I have adjusted the catchlights on the other image, as someone else suggested, and it does look better.

You can never tell with judges... I have given up the print competitions this year because they seem more concerned with the quality of the mount and what paper it's printed on than how good the image is! I always find the longer they talk about whats in the photograph, or the mouting/borders , the lower the mark they give it.Tongue

One judge marked one of my pictures down as the owl was flying too near the ground!
