bad pun, good picture. Like the 'backlit' upper half more than the lower pieces

Beautiful texture and lighting. The split in the upper left is somewhat bothersome. But I love it.

wonderful textures and images of light retlected and transmitted. good clarity and composition

Nice texture. I like how the light is shining on the front of the subject, as well as shining through. I think it either needs to be cropped more at the top, or let more of the top show, not sure which. karmat

nice lighting on the back of the object. Good texture and framing.8

Very delicate and detailed with a nice amount of light - 9..hokie

a mushroom, right? very cool idea. not totally sure about the combination backlighting at the top and full-on lighting at the bottom, but i guess it does show off texture differently in both places. the title confuses a bit, i guess i'm not getting it. -- gr8photos (6)

LOL....... You're such a clever one! The photo is wonderful. Your choice of lighting really accentuates the delicate layers in there. Right on.

Better focus would yield higher score. =7

the lighting on this is especially wonderful. The illumination from behind show the delicacy, and yet so does the lighting from the front. With the sharp focus I can see the paper-thin components. Angling the symmetrical lines gives interest and a line for my eye to follow which draws me in, and keeps me in the picture.

Are you insinuating a body mass of branched filamentous hyphae?
07/24/2002 02:23:00 PM
Great title. Very good close up.

Like the gradation from dark to light. Picture has nice rhythms. Don't understand the title though.
07/22/2002 09:40:00 PM
Very nice. I light the lighting and the composition. Well executed.
07/22/2002 04:48:00 PM
i'm curious as to what this is.
07/22/2002 03:49:00 PM
I have NO clue what this is but it's done well and I do like it. Kee.

An old joke, but a nice photo. Well done.

If you load this into Photoshop and adjust the levels manually making the image brighter throughout the whole thing takes on a translucent quality. the bit at the back where the light comes through looks fantastic and could maybe have been cropped out on its own see what I mean at //uk.photos.yahoo.com/bc/martinwoods_uk/lst?.dir=/Yahoo!+Photo+Album

fun guy....fungi......lol...cute. This is really nice.
07/22/2002 10:00:00 AM
From your title, I still can't make out what I'm looking at. No points lost, just an observation. Very interesting lighting, it almost seems like it could be underwater. Coral maybe? I have no clue. :)

mmm mushroom. very very nice. i love this semi-abstract texture.
07/22/2002 05:17:00 AM

07/22/2002 01:47:00 AM

07/22/2002 01:41:00 AM
