HAHAHA, so i see why this time it would be an unexpected hallucination!
the leaf on the right is distracting but the pine i like

Superb study. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Cogratulations on the 8th place! Beautiful shot!
06/14/2006 08:00:20 PM
Awesome shallow DOF - almost unreal!
06/14/2006 08:07:28 AM
Aleks, I am sure you have a mushroom problem! congrats on a great shot and high finish

Being how you are around these mushrooms a lot I doubt those hallucinations were expected. :)

Excellent job isolating your subject. In this challenge I would have never thought that I would vote a picture of a mushroom as being top ten but you have done an outstanding job here.

Very beautiful image with excellent framing.
06/12/2006 11:21:48 AM
I quite like this image, but I wish that leaf wasn't there on the right side!
06/12/2006 12:52:54 AM
Wow, I think the DOF is playing tricks with my brain. Awesome shot.
06/11/2006 03:23:01 PM

Not a really inspiring subject, but very nicely done with color, DOF, composition. Techically a very good shot.

I really like this shot. Great light & shadow. I wish the little green leaf on the right was not part of the show but overall great job. Bumping to 8.
06/10/2006 01:36:43 AM
hahaha. nice macro. could do without the leaf on the left, and maybe going for a tighter crop, but very nice. sharp! :)

great shot.....I love it.....Its like stepping into another world.....

Nice find. Love the compostition - except for the green leafs along the right edge. You should have plucked them out of the way when you took the shot. Great focus. The textures and details really stand out. DOF is excellent

I think the grass on top is a little distracting, but otherwise I like it very much.
