    Default Shuttlecock Mushroom

    Photographed at Kondane near Mumbai. I had no idea how to compose this image :-(, so it is pretty much a record shot. However, I wanted to share it as I found this species particularly interesting.

    Clathrus sps., commonly known as the shuttlecock mushroom. A member of the Stinkhorn fungus family, though unlike its relatives, it doesn't emit any foul odour. Found growing in clusters on dead wood.

    Camera Model Name Canon PowerShot SX10 IS
    Tv (Shutter Speed) 1/60
    Av (Aperture Value) 3.5 (forgot to narrow it :-P)
    ISO Speed 100
    Cropped, and levels adjusted.

    Thanks, C&C welcome.

    Nice record image. You could have if possible tried to avoid the stone in the foreground.A closer view would have enhanced the composition further. Thanks for the detailed information. Look forward to more.

    Abhishek,
    Thanks for the interesting information. I

    Actually, you need two views. One is this ground level wide view of the scene. The other has to be close up to see details. Even in the present case, a slightly closer view would have been better as well as a narrow aperture. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    Good to know about the species. I am fine with the DOF here. A macro version of this would be nice as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
    @Bibhav: This was shot in Macro at the shortest focal length. Should have tried a higher focal length too. :-(
