Remus from Portugal

I think the photo would have looked better if the focus point was in the foreground. I think that way it would create more visual impact ...

29 Jun 2018 2:25pm

@Remus: I compared the two when I focused in the foreground and all of the cilia that surrounds the puffball was then out of focus and I felt the cilia near the green background had more of an impact.
