Thank You for sharing such a joy to behold.
After a few years on this site, the menu changes little with only variations in the recipes used, but this shot stands out all on it own, filled with a magical enchantment of sorts, and a color palette that truly does it justice.
Congrats on your 21st place in this humongous challenge Steve.

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask alice
I think she'll know

Ahhh, fabulous 'shrooms -- nice lighting technique, adds real interest to these otherwise colorless fungi -- the density is really amazing!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2007 07:19:30 PM
This is a very obstactac picture. I like it but it's some what hard to tell what it is and the colors are very bright. I also think the light is a little to bright, 5

Very other-worldly feel to this - I much like the character of the fungus. A strange choice of lighting but it makes for an intriguing image.

Cool abstract/macro!

Are they ten feet tall? jejeje... This is sweet, albeit in my eyes it carries a hint of being "contrived", as if it's almost trying too hard. A high score from me.

Now I have that Jefferson Airplane song running through my recycled 1960's memory system. Combine it with a little of Disney's Alice in Wonderland and I am anticipating a white rabbit to force his way through the thicket of mushrooms. How can I judge other people's images with THAT going on in there? 8

The photo is just amazing all by itself - but the title is the icing on the cake. What a mysterious and compelling world you have discovered! Great color (cool blues and hot reds), focus and composition - you've made a macro into a landscape.

A Quality Image
and a strong contender for this Challenge.
Sometimes we have to look at the photo for what its worth, but I would like to look further and realise there are probably personal preferences surrounding your choice.
When your identity is revealed I will look foreward to viewing your portfolio !
