I agree with you fungi man, the colour photos appeal to me much more.
my fave is the 3rd. yes, the subtle colors are more attractive.
I like the B&W also. Very graphic.
I prefer the natural colour of the mushrooms. The natural is so delicate and beautiful. :)
I like the second and third ones. Definitely needs color, not B&W.
Beautiful tones in that b&w.
Gathering inspiration here... B&W or color -- well, for the 3rd shot color seems ideal, and the final shot in black and white seems to work nicely with the composition.
Very nice 'shrooms! They really do grow into some strange forms.Cheers - Stewart M - AustraliaPS: glad you like my garden, but I dont think we'd make it into Better Homes and Gardens!
I'll weigh in on the side of color. That little warm hint of brown does a lot to accent the mushroom and give it a little complexity in my opinion. Beautiful shots!
I went down to see the other mushrooms...I understand you did not get them eat...they are delicious. In our state parks it is legal to pick mushrooms or nuts...or at least it used to be. Been years ago that we talked to them about it.To see the biggest oyster mushrooms I have ever seen, check out my post at my Pics & Pieces blog: http://picsandpiecing.blogspot.com/2008/05/miscellaneous.html
Mushrooms make my heart swoon.
