magic mushrooms

By mojave79
here is a pair of fly agaric mushrooms, found mostly under pine and birch trees in late summer and auterm. there really wasnt alot of available light for this shot so i used my tripod and cable release with a seagull angle viewfinder attached.
ISO 100
ex comp -2
shutter spd 0.8
aperture 7.1

also put through photoshop to brighten up and remove unwanted bits.

These are abundant this year, shame the insects gotr to them first, which is normally the way.
Be interested in the exposure details on this as they appear quite dark. I was on a 30 second exposure the other day for some

Great image, never mind the chewed bits, this happens in nature.
You might be able to recover exposure in PS.

Good effort.
