Thanks for the great comments. I was hoping for a better placing, but we always do!

Hi from the C Club

Great shot, I love it.

I am not sure why this placed where it did, i really do think it is a good shot. The background is a little too much, I would have cropped it a little closer to the top of the mushroom. Your slug is hilarious! You may be a tiny bit over sharpened as you have halos around the black bits on top of the mushroom, but it brings out the underside perfectly /

Maybe a little dodge and burn on the underside would have separated it a little more and some on the leaves. But honestly I can not see much wrong with this shot, I really like it

Your sharpening really made the edges of the mushroom underside pop. Love the bokeh background.

I hate eating them, but they make great photos. Is that a slug on the stem?

interesting find. Shots like this need clean & simple bokeh to really show off the profile and subject. Currently the background is the main weakness in this shot (no vote)
