The Shot

Taking a break from Urban London pictures and back to an Autumn woods shot I took a few weeks ago. This is a beautiful location where a bridlepath goes through some woods near Slindon in the South Downs, West Sussex, UK. A little off the path I spotted a good clump of fungi growing. The earlier shot in my Photostream -Woodland Floor was looking into the sun. This one was in the same location looking in the opposite direction. I was struck by the line of Fungi seeming to march into the distance.

I took the picture by putting the camera on a bag on the floor.

Taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20mm Zoom at 10mm. Taken with auto bracketing for HDR. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

Photomatix

Outputted in Photomatix to detail enhancer. Click the Camera name top right for the Exif information and details of the settings used.

Photoshop

The 0EV original image was copied and pasted as a new layer with a black layer mask. A brush was then used to show the layer over the fungi to bring out their white look better

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance with layer masks to exclude the highlights.

Vibrance adjustment layer increase 24 points.

Saturation Adjustment Layer, reds and yellows used to decrease saturation in the leaves for a more natural look

Brighten adjustment layer with a mask to increase brightness of the fungi a little.

Noiseware Pro

Unsharp Mask a little sharpening low radius and higher amount.

Duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius (Clarity Effect) to the picture except some highlights.
