Hello friends in TL,

This is a very small mushroom less than 3mm in diameter of the cups. They are extremely small mushrooms, rarely exceeding a few centimeters in diameter and often only reaching diameters of a few millimeters. They are frequently overlooked, unless they happen to be growing in large clusters.

This one have a large colony.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,
A very interesting macro shot of these little mushrooms.
Perfect light management for rendering perfect exposure on the mushrooms. Great details can be admired.
I like the diagonal emerging of the trunk backed by a nice green blurred BG.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Jusni,
Wonderful macro of these tiny mushrooms! You managed such an "envious" clean smooth BG which lets the fungae be totally undisturbed.

Hi Jusni,

I like your use of shallow DOF and how the mushrooms trail off in a repeating pattern into the soft background. The gradual blurring of the mushrooms and warm lighting work well together.

Best regards,

Hi Jusni,

A nice macro capture from mushrooms growing over a decayed wooden bark!
The focus is pin-sharp and clarity is amazing.
Great colors and perfect contrast between the mushrooms and the blurry dark green BG.
Well done!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Jusni.

You have achieved excllent depth in this , you aimed at the forefront ones which is ideal focusing i reckon , the rest of the bunch gently and gradually fading and retaining their typical form in the distant blur , i also like how illuminated the little cups are overall although the light was quite low, their diminutive size shall never be a problem with good macro lens and a tripod , you have done very well in presenting these minuscule mushrooms Jusni , thanks for sharing ,
All my best,

Very nice capture of this unusual mushrooms, I like the colors. Great pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Jusni,
You're right, these fungi belong to the genus Mycena, but they're impossible to ID further without microscopic analisation. Great composition, colors, sharpness and light management. Gorgeous shot! Bravo!
Best regards, László
