This shot was difficult to capture. The weather was rainy, bordering on snow while driving a highway leading to St. helens, Oregon. These mushrooms were growing through moss which lie at the edge of a wild raspberry thicket. As you can see, there were thorn covered canes everywhere. I tore both my pants and my jacket as well as my skin while crawling around to get this angle. I think it was worth it.

Great capture with beautiful light and nice background bokeh. To be more attractive, It's better cut the bottom (dark part) and left side a little bit because subject is the beautiful mushrooms. This is my personal opinion. For your info, I have 4100 followers at 500px.com. Bill

thank you for sharing your thoughts. I wish more people would offer their assistance. I am working to improve my portraiture and keep hoping a few of the experts would offer their critiques

The mushrooms are beautiful! I can sympathize with you about the difficult shot. Mushrooms are so tiny, it's hard to get on their level without getting dirty, or in your case scratched! I think the thorns on the bottom are a bit distracting. If you can crop them out, it would be good.

Thank you Joy for taking the time to comment. I left the raspberry cane where it was because I thought the contrast between soft mushrooms and the prickly cane was intriguing. Reading the two comments here I will make two shots next time, one with the contrasting textures and then move the cane to get a second image. I don't think I would crop this one because then the mushrooms would sprout from nowhere.
