Due to my technique of thrusting the camera at an angle under the fungus (only possible with a compact) and hoping for the best most of mine were out of focus. I love the texture of the gills from underneath though. No brilliant shots from Sunday but what a great day out and I'm enjoying looking through the results from all the hard-core fungophiles.

This has worked quite well- like the angle of view but might have tried to tone down the highlights in the sky a touch.

Like the angle and shot. Top left of the frame distracts slightly.

Glad you had a good result from the day. Sorry I didn't see you - I think I was nose-down to the forest floor when you arrived!

Great angle, try doing that with an SLR - you'd need to dig a pit first!

Hi Sus,
when I went last year I only had a compact and some of the macro shot I took were better than the ones I got on my SLR and macro lens this year!
Nice details here.

Thanks all, and for the comments about the sky which I'll watch for next time I'm trying this.

Good detail and DoF.

It's important to get down on the floor eh?

i think it would be better if DOF was low.......................... Background needs less detail.

Thanks Himel - yes this is a problem with small digicams! Background too sharp.
