"The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep."

Great image here. I think you probably could have gone for slightly more depth of field, but as it stands, you have captured two great mushrooms against some beautiful bokeh. Very nice, looking at your EXIF data, this was shot at 40mm and f/3.2? how close were you to those mushrooms?

Thanks Matt! I honestly don't remember how far away I was...but I think I was pretty close. They were very, very tiny. I don't know if you can tell, or if it helps for perspective, but they're growing out of some moss on a the railing of an observation point. So it was pretty challenging getting those little guys in focus as it was. Appreciate the feedback as always. :)

May I just ask, what kind of blur have you used? ^^

That's just good old-fashioned lens blur from a shallow depth of field setting. :)

Thanks! I didn't really appreciate Frost until much after I was forced to study him in college. There's an elegant simplicity with which he writes, one that so many just can't seem to duplicate.
