Spotted this fellow on a walk last sunday. This mushroom decided to grow right on top of a post of a gate in a fence.

The weather wasn't perfect for photography at all: grey, cloudy and a bit of drizzling rain. Still iI am pleased with the results. Moreover this is a first attempt to process the RAW image in Darktable. ItΕ› freeware that got my interest for a while, now I have found the time to practice it. The learning curve is a steep one and I am not at the end of the curve. I still need to figure out how to denoise the background, for instance. as an first attempt, I am pleased with the result.

A really lovely little world of its own on top of that post and you have done well with this. For myself I would crop a bit from each side and the bottom to bring that world in a little closer.

cropped and a neutral grad filter applied to darken the top area and lighten the bottom slightly and some unsharpen mask as well.
