There's something very surreal about this that I love. It really does look like a family. Clix.

Hi There!

It means Depth of Field, and as I understand it, this simply refers to the relationship of the object that is in focus to objects in the background. And if I'm not completely right, I'm sure there are several people that will educate both of us.

Still wondering whether this is a joke shot Tracey!! Good spot and low angle to make the most of it.
Just to continue the DoF theme, this refers to the amount of a photograph that is in focus. A "narrow" or "small" DoF means only a very small part is in focus and a "wide" or "large" DoF means a lot of the photograph is in focus).
"Differential focusing" is where you choose a small part of the photo (the subject) to be sharp in order to emphasize it by "differentiating" it from the foreground and background - which is what you've done here.

Good work Tracey!

Oh, alrighty then!!See what happened was, I was walking along, and really did see these mushrooms! So i lay on the floor and took a shot. The setting was on "automatic". Alot of people think it's a joke shot, but it really is true! I looked them up when I got home, and they are called 'shaggy parasoles!'
But thanks,I really have learn't so much and appreciate all your comments and advice.
Thanx! xx

That's a very nice shot with good detail. You may have improved the composition a touch if the main Toadstool was not quite so central. But that's being picky and only meant as a tip for you, hope you don't mind. Cool shot , nicely spotted.

I have never seen toadstools growing in beach sand. Nice shot

I am loving this shot. Brilliantly captured moment of something so very different to what we'd normally see in every day life. That's what I personally believe photography is all about. You made me smile. (sorry if my rose made you a little sad though)
