  1. This is beautiful. I had to stare at it for a while, specifically at the edges where the edges of the tree and fungus meet. I’m still not convinced that the fungus is actually growing on the tree branch, but I also don’t really have a specific reason to doubt it. Overall, I really like the short depth of field and how that really draws the eye into the texture and the rings of color you can see in the white.

  2. Great picture. I like the composition (looks like it has been cropped which looks good) of the photo and how the black and white color balance each other.

  3. My first thought was how beautiful this is. I love how you have turned something that is a fungus into a work of art. This image gives me greater appreciation for nature and I would love to see more close up shots by you!

  4. I am enjoying the way you have framed this shot. As the mushroom cascades out of focus I don’t lose attention, rather, my eye bounces back up to the focused part of the photograph. Nice work!

  5. I really like how this photo focuses on the mushroom on the tree and then blurs a little bit at the bottom. It keeps my attention on what you intended without overwhelming the eye with too much. Great close up shot!

  6. I really enjoy the depth of field of this photo. You did a really nice job having the fungus in focus which really shows the detail of the fungus and that you can see the other fungi in the background but they are blurred. I also like the way the tree is not centered in the photo and that the branches leave the frame.

  7. I Love the close range of aperture used in this picture, it solidifies the neutral colors and details each crevasse in the wood and texture piece.

  8. A short depth of field and blurry edges really focus my eye view onto the texture of the fungus. Nice use of aperture along with a short color range. Really make me feel like the fungus just latch on the tree branch from somewhere else.
