A Melange of Mushrooms

 

Taken during the rain-damp days of late August.

 

Please excuse the sporadic nature of my comments... It's a little hard for me to set priorities these days... I also intend to be a little more forthcoming with suggestions and mild criticisms for folks who have the red schood... Knowing you will do the same for me. Pax tibi.

looks like a pod of hyena on a cold morning. smile


If this was my image I'd add a little contrast and around the edges I'd soften them off with a little gaussian blur. That'd make it pop a little more.
Larry Bliss: Contrast seemed adequate but I pp'ed this about 2 months ago. Guassian blur is new to me...

They look a little crowded, Larry...you could assist by thinning half of them into a pow, adding a little butter and pepper, and applying a little heat...that should make the remainers a little more comfortable...
Larry Bliss: You are always a wit. smile

I love this Larry - snuggly togetherness rules..
Larry Bliss: Old chaps, all of them...
I don't know what it is exactly about mushrooms, edible or not, Larry, but they sure invite us to use the camera, don't they!
Larry Bliss: I can't take photos of magnolias and sidewalks all the time!

Sporadicy is perfectly fine Larry. Pax Tecum Larry. I’m up for it, but I gave up being too critical as I feared I was giving offence. It depends on what the genre of the photograph is meant to be. I sometimes try and post something artistcis, other times journalistic, other times for amusement, and other times - rarely - for pure photographic quality.
Larry Bliss: Pax tecum to you too Chad.

Those mushrooms keep each other warm, Larry.
And I think I will not make a change in my way of commenting. Who am I, I hardly can hold a camera myself and than be critical towards somebody else? I don't think so, my technical knowledge is not good enough.
Larry Bliss: Yes, but if something is off with my work, feedback doesn't have to be super-technical.

A plethera
Larry Bliss: Great word...
Quite a melange - they'd make good soup, I'd guess!
Larry Bliss: I guess so... if you like that sort of thing...smile
Well that's fine with me Larry. I tend to agree with Chad.

However, constructive criticism is always welcome.
per rectum ad astra as the Russians say....apparently
Larry Bliss: thanks Bill...
I feel like Astrid. As a complete amateur I don't have any credentials to criticize anyone else's work.
Larry Bliss: You are ** not ** a complete amateur. The root of "amateur" is amas, to love. It does not have to mean non-professional. I love photography and in that since I am an amateur.
i am always up for the red button... although i do not always set it up in my posts (i should).
i would perhaps try to include the bits that are left out towards the top left.
Larry Bliss: I see your point... I like to crop parts of things out to let the viewer complete the picture, but it's not an absolute for me...

Your focus is soft - that will be either the camera or the SC software. I have been experiencing for quite some time now that a picture may be perfect sharp, viewed from my PC's image viewer; but after loading it up on SC, the focus has softened. When a pic is uploaded/linked in the "photographer's comment", that picture will be sharper than the main picture.
Larry Bliss: Hmmm. Sometimes I get a little too close to the subject, when I get excited.
