View Full Version : Is this a macro or a little landscape ?

I took this group of fungi because I liked the vertical structure of the
arrangement. The shot is a composition of 5 shots.
I am not clear if this is a macro, I look at it as a macro landscape and try to include all the elements in the environment.
What do you think?

To me it's a nature shot. Doesn't really qualify as a landscape or macro.
I wouldn't classify it as a macro. My reason is that a macro has much more detail and sharpness than this image portrays. Also, a macro usually focuses on one particular subject matter with a rather shallow depth of field so your eye is naturally drawn to it. (At least in my experience). The background here detracts from the subject (the fungi). It's a nice image, but not a macro to my way of thinking. ~~Peg
I too would class it as Wildlife/nature. If it were mine I would crop to virtually the tree trunk and fungi and up the saturation a little.
Very interesting growth.
I would class it as a landscape but would soften the background, in order to keep the setting, to hold my attention on the fungi. I like the colors and the detail you have captured on the fungi.
You seem to be using natural light here but I've started carrying my flash out in the woods because I was missing so many nice shots because of poor lighting. (Seems most fungus doesn't really care for bright lights)
