Well from what I understand, mushrooms are much more well liked in Europe than in America anyway. But I personally also find them very cute.

That's so awesome. Sorry, I'm hardly giving 'advanced critique', but not being a skilled photographer like yourself, i can't really give that =p

I hope you forgive me and take this huge amount of praise
*gives you lots of praise* :D

i know it should be all about the shrooms but i think the big/bold blades of grass in the foreground really steal the show.

excellent colour and angle.. i love the balance but Colette was right about the placing of the flare..i like that it's there. the placing is just off somewhat.

other than that, my first thought was smurf-realty.


ha!

Thanks, I wish I could move the sun. . .
On second thought, that kind of thing tends to have ramifications that go along with it.

you're right..gravity..weather..life on earth...

better to leave celestial bodies like that alone...at least for now.

Not to mention that it emits wave after wave of harmful radiation.

I like the way the orderedness of the windows in the building balance with the unorderlyness of the mushrooms, I like the lighting and high contrast of the shrooms and the grass.

I think that the subject would be more interesting if some of the grass in front of the mushrooms had been moved or pulled away to see the stems of the shrooms, I think that would have made a better picture, but I also think that nature shouldn't be messed with most of the time.
Overall the picture is very good!

So do what you will with this comment as I am simply stating opinion.

Well, it wasn't so much nature as it was the lawn surrounding the water treatment plant with the "No Trespassing" signs all over the place. ^^;
But I get the idea.

I love the angle. I think it could've done without the house in the background, you know, to make it more natural-looking. The sunlight is so cheery and peaceful too.

It's a barn actually, with a silo.

woohoo! shrooms!!!
Ahahahahahahaaa, my comment was much less intelligent than ~PsychoColette's. i'll try to make it better, though.

i really like the sun off to the side a bit, and how it shines slightly through the grass. nowadays photographers that i know try to get the sun completely centered, which looks completely retarded.

great focus on the mushrooms, alot of good color in this shot.

Thank you.
It's nice of you to say that.
You should tell your heliocentric photographer friends that they should learn what the rule of thirds is.

eh, anytime.

yes, i should... i dunno. let them do their own thing.

AwkwardScience Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2006
Eh?
Oh, no I didn't mean that in an insulting way. *smacks self*
No I meant it literally.
In the rule of thirds, the best place to place the focal point is 1/3 from any of the edges on a photo.

Mmm, it's been a while since you've submitted ^w^ *joy*

Now let's see...critique.
I like the lighting on the mushrooms and the clarity/sharpness of the foreground. I also like that the building in the back is blurry.

Hm, but something about the light flare on the side...
I don't rightly know, but it looks off to me.
Erm...I don't think that helps much; me not knowing exactly what it is that I'm not liking ^^;

Overall, I like this piece :}
I look forward to more~

I couldn't decide about the lense flare.
I think I ultimately liked it because it balanced the dark half of the picture. (the bottom)
