I crossed over the metal fence going toward the logging operation right next to where you park for this fall. The fungus were all over some fallen logs just a little ways up the logging road. You really have to search to find these colonies.

:omg: Whoa! That's an awesome formation of shrooms. I've never seen them stacked up like that, and I spend a lot of time in the woods. :thumbsup:

I wouldn't have guessed this was an HDR if you hadn't mentioned it. It looks nice & natural. Seven exposures seems like a lot though. I'm guessing you could get similar results by processing just one raw exposure in photoshop.

Thanks, Mike. For some reason, I've been lucky enough to stumble upon a large colony of fungus the past two autumns.

I really try to make my HDR photos look natural. Processing them in another program once you are done with them in Photomatix is always a good idea. Seven exposures probably was a bit more than I needed. If you take a look at the photo again you will notice that there is a dark area just below where the mushrooms were coming out of the log. My aim with the seven bracketed exposures was to get some light in that area so that I didn't have this large dark void in my photo. Turns out that I cropped out most of the void in post anyway. The shot still looked really good so I used it.
