FungiFriday: All Roads Lead To Mushroom Paradise

in FungiFriday2 years ago (edited)


Happy Mushroom Friday! Today I'm back with some mushroom catches that I'll be submitting to the #FungiFriday, hosted by @ewkaw.

About 4 days ago, I was told by a friend that in a warehouse that was used as a dumping ground for his palm oil waste, there was a lot of fungus growing. He was kind enough to invite me there, and of course, I gladly accepted the invitation.

The warehouse is not far from my parents' house; it only takes about 15 minutes away on foot. When I got there, I immediately couldn't wait to enter the warehouse. Well, there are a lot of harefoot mushrooms (Coprinopsis lagopus) growing there. But the atmosphere in the warehouse is quite dark, and there are no lights. There is only a little sunlight coming in from the cracks of the vent.

This situation makes me a little frustrated because my phone camera certainly can't catch mushrooms with maximum exposure. But I still take pictures even though the lighting is low. Because at that time, I was reminded of the phrase, "All roads lead to Rome." With the help of Lightroom's magical power, I can definitely "conjure" the mushrooms to look beautiful. Here are the results:

I almost asked where the light came from towards the mushroom with so much delight to the eye when looking at it, but you yourself have already told the answer. You are indeed a professional macro wizard :)

I think you are praising me too much. It's just a little trick to make them turn on. 😄 Anyway, thanks for the compliment, buddy.

These are some amazing shots! I really like the edits which provide that mysterious atmosphere. Excellent work!😍👍🍄

Yeah, I see that, and I only realized it after seeing your comment. Thanks for the compliment.

Oh yeah, I saw your photos too, and they were amazing. Surely I have to learn a lot from you.🙂

Thanks for the kind words! I think we can all learn from each other in this community. Everyone has a different approach or style. That’s what makes it so interesting! 😀👍

Wow! Shot in the moonlight. That's how they look like.

Haha..conjuring day into night in the moonlight. That's how the magic of lightroom editing tools works. 😁
