I'm not an expet, but I know what I like!

Don't know for how long you've been taking photos, but you photos seems to lack of a lot of photographic basics.


Composition, lightmetering, cropping, eyecatching, colors etc.

It seem to me, that you've tries catching the fungus. You did - but you catched a lot of other elements. Try again and this time focus on the fungus!

Yes, that is an interesting mushroom (generic name: Fetid something?)

but also your exposure is way bad and how did the trees grow at that slant by themselves.

Great try but my first pet peve is horizontal and verticals supposed to be straight. Worse yet is the folks who post pictures of level water running out of the picture!!! I hate it when my pants are wet vewing a pic on the web...

Well, thanks all for your comments! I didn't realise my picture was so bad, but the comment about the trees standing not quite right is wrong. The trees stood like this! ik couldn't help it.

Thanks all, anyway!

Default a constructive suggestion

I would crop around the fungus such that the trees are a minimal part of the photo. Nice pic otherwise. Very clear and you can see the structure of the mushroom cap. Dont put the fungus in the center but make it the focus of the picture.

What exactly do you mean with "not in the center, but make it the focus". If I want to make it the focus, it has to stay in the center though? Or am I wrong?

Default center of picture

Well, Dont look at it in terms of right or wrong but what is pleasing to the eye. I find objects all centered up to be ok, however, lacking interest. If you offset the focus of your picture it adds interest. Pick out the interesting elements in the picture and when you crop your picture try to arrange them so they are interesting and appealing to your eye. gives you something to work with. Do it to please yourself and dont worry about pleasing others.

Not that I am an expert as I am not in any way or shape.
