Winter Fantasy - Mushroom
Lens: Tamron 70-300mm Camera: K-m Photo Location: Near London ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8

Taken during the first of the light snow in the winter. Using a sweetie tin I got from a comic book store in London, I decided to try and make my own xmas card. Sadly the hardware ended up letting me down, but the photo came out well I think!

I used Luminance HDR to tonemap it from a single exposure, to try and bring out some of the reflections on the mushroom cap.

Cool shot! Could need a tad more light. The background bokeh is nice!

It is exactly that :P The comic book store I went to (very very famous one) has all sorts of things like this

And yeah, I wanted to add more light, but I was sick with the stupid cold/flu bug at the time, or rather, only JUST getting over it, so I was trying not to shiver... hence the fast-ish shutter.
