8/30/2010: English Mushroom

Just a simple straightforward portrait of an interesting mushroom found on my walk through the golf courses at Greetham Valley Country Club in the UK. A view from slightly above ground level to catch as much of the form as possible, taken with the flip out LCD and a medium long tel-macro setting on the Canon SX20IS.  It is all about those curves and that texture! The clover head gives a bit a of scale. This was a big mushroom.

190mm equivalent field of view and Macro @ f5.0 @ 1/125th @ ISO 125. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, slight cropping for composition, Blackpoint right, added Clarity and Vibrance, and Sharpen narrow edges preset.

From Germany and England 2010.
