Really like this macro Amanda...the lighting makes it! I tried to shoot a Mushroom macro and it just looked like an ugly old fungus...go figure! Nice work!

Thank-you all so very much for taking the time to stop and comment!!

I am sad to report that the above mushoom has been decapitated this afternoon along with several of her friends and family. There were thoughts of cremation, but their remains have already been scattered, so there is really no need now.

Donations to fund the Mushroom Family Scholoarship can be made out to...

My honest opinion?...It's a well deserved win! Great shot! Don't worry too much about their strange dissapearance...They went fast and didn't suffer and I have a feeling they will be reincarnated shortly in the neighbors lawn.~:O)

Bob, the mushroom indeed lives on through it's offspring which have now managed to escape their mother's nemesis three weeks in a row! ;)

Isabel, I haven't been entering due to being too busy to get out with my camera and shoot.

Thanks, Ronald! I guess it was just good timing because I sure didn't plan it! The mushroom was a yellow-topped one with a peachy underside. All it took was a little light from the top to shine through and voila!

My dearest Amanda. An old Chinese proverb states that "demanding one to be honest is to ask the day to reveal its stars". There are many opinions as to what this means, but personally I think it means that seeking pure motive is not easily revealed but we can only trust that it is there. Ultimately we need to trust ourselves with our own confidence in the outcome. You are truly gifted Amanda. Judge your own work. Only then will you be a true Master of your craft. I believe what you are really seeking is praise. And it is deserved. This particular photograph reminds me of a solar eclipse in a giant galaxy the way the light arcs at the edge of the mushroom. I think a good photograph is a good metaphor. In that you have succeeded. And thank you for mentioning your faith in God. It made this photograph a testament to His design, not just of the mushroom and the light, but of making us in his Image with the ability to create things as well. In fact, God's Hebrew name Yahweh means "He who creates or causes to Be". Excellent. Hope to see more of your creative work.

Wow!
Your composition, tonality, sharpness and clarity is pure perfection. I love the way it is backlighted. You did an amazing job and the judges apparently agreed!

Congratulations on your win. You've given me inspiration and a goal in which to aim.
