    i like both but the first has me looking for a place to land. the second shot emphasizes the mushroom, giving me a focal point. very nice PS work!

    Definatly like the PS version more, it is much stronger IMO. Nice work.

    I much prefer the first one, the extra colour of the leaves completes the picture.

    I think the ps version emphasises more of the fungi and less of a distraction from the leaves, #2 for me!

    good work on the second one. I agree with the others comments, the textures on the the mushroom seem to stand out more, and it simplifies the pictures. The second one could also probably work in b/w

    I like it better without the leaves, though as some have already said, its lacking a bit of colour that way. but since you are photoshoping the image, why don't you spice up the colour of those leaves in the background a little bit? :)

    ow, you know what could have also done? bent those leaves out of the picuture with one hand, while making the shot with your other ;)

    cool idea bud, but I was about 8 feet away for this shot with a 300mm lens.. arms are not long enough!

    I like to leave things natural, as it is in all my shoots if possible.. but maybe some electrical tape might have come in handy!

    thanks &Denekamp]ow

    I love the first one. The second one is good too, but I agree the green adds a nice touch of color
