    Re: Fungi

    Not sure if it will qualify... but lets try. Here's a specimen that was picked by my father during a recent mushroom picking.

    Shot in my parents garden, natural light, Symmar (the original convertible version) 180mm. IIRC, the bellows was extended to approx 250mm and this was shot at f/16 on an expired Astia 100F. I had few other versions of this, but apparently I must have used the wrong aperture scale and the images are severely exposed. As we all know, it's no good for chromes. Oh well - at least I will be more cautious next time.

    Click image for larger version.

    It does look good, doesn't it? Makes me itch to get into the woods with a camera, and a basket for mushrooms.

    Re: Fungi

    My first attempt at fungi with a LF. Nikkor SW 4.5/90, 4x5 TMax 100, HC-110
    Couldn't get the camera any lower. I need a better tripod.
    Comments welcome.
    Regards

    Time to revive this thread; it's autumn on the northern hemisphere, after all!

    Hypholoma fasciculare (sulphur tufts), by far the most common species here:

    That's a lovely photograph, koraks. I'd instinctively have gone closer to the fungi, but I think the wider view with the backdrop of the forest works really well.

    Thanks guys. Yes, you have a point David, moving closer would have emphasized the perspective that this lens offers; I should make use of that in the future.
