Awesome shot... Like the water droplet coming off the toadstill ...Just adds that nice touch :O)

I do not want to critique it. I'd have nothing of value to add ..Will be interested to hear what the experts say :O)

I think the composition and subject are spot-on. My only criticism would be ( on my monitor at least ) that the contrast may be a little strong and detail is being lost in the mushrooms highlights and the ferns shadows. Also some of the subtle tones are hard to see.

The water droplet is superb.

This is only an opinion.

It's like a fairy's eye view of the world. I like the composition and the rich, contrasty colours very much...although it would be good to see a bit of detail brought back into the darker areas of the curls. Overall as strong image.

What can I say? This is just a stunningly perfect composition.

Congratulations on your first upload. I can't wait to see what else you have to share with us.

It's a very dramatic image, very well executed. The saturated colours work well but there are a few blown highlights on the fungi and the top right background. Also, some sharpening artefacts surround the fungi, but these are hardly noticeable.
I love the shaped made by the plants.

Hi Gary, and a big welcome to EPZ. What a beauty for a first upload. Composition is very good and exposure seems ok however the bright area to the right is distracting and I think overall it coukld be a tad sharper. A curves adjstment would bring out a little more detail in the fern curls and maybe calm down the overexposed areas on top of the little shrooms. All in all a lovely image well done

It's just a magical image. I agree about its little flaws, but cannot fault the composition and all those beautiful curly shapes that come together so perfectly.
