Black and white mushrooms
Lens: 50mm manual prime Camera: KM Photo Location: Home ISO: 400 

I changed this to b&w and increased the contrast using Elements

Nice idea, but I don't think this works for me. I don't like the mushroom in the foreground, and this that this would have worked better as a vertical.

Thanks for the feedback Adam. Funnily enough, I tried both your suggestions, I just could not get the composition looking right with it vertical.

The distracting OOF areas below make it difficult to focus the attention on the two mushrooms intended to be the subject.

I'd take the shot again just with the two mushrooms and stopped down some more.
