I love the colors in this shot. The red gives a nice contrast with the green. Very nice DOF, too, the areas in front of and behind the toadstall are just blurry enough to make the toadstall stand out, yet they're not so blurry that you can't see it's grass.

My compliments :)

Thanks alot for the comments. ;)

I'm surprised this one has received such good comments, as i actually prefer Fungus 1, although this one probably has the better focus of the two.

Nice capture. The light looks pretty good there. :) I'm waiting for the fairies to peep out from the grass. Delightful composition. :)

hehe! Thanks for commenting.

While i was in Scotland, i stumbled across some of their folklore regarding fairies... Not sure i want to meet them to be honest lol! They beat some poor guy all the way back to their queen, just because he was singing tunelessly!?! Believe me, i'm no singer hehe! :D

I have heard that the original tales of fairies, gnomes etc. are far different than our Disney versions. They are dark and grim and scary in a lot of ways. I imagine they reflected life at the time.

Yeah it must've been tough in those days, hell it's hard enough up there now once the weather sets in. I wouldn't fancy it living in a mud hut and wearing a skirt! Erm, i mean kilt of course... :p
