Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest !

 

Here we can take a short moment, to nominate and give recognition to the photographers and images you think have gone above and beyond on this forum. Pictures that awed and inspired you, deserve to be given credit and recognition.

Thank those who shared them in the Forums with a nomination. Whether they be artsy, creative, accomplishments, or just downright impressive, this is where we want you to recognize them. If you love it, post it here.

When you nominate an image please upload the image to this thread, tell us who took the picture, and copy the specific post location where to find it. There's a wealth of quality pictures every month here, and many of us want to see them and recognize those behind the lens. Good luck to all of those involved. Nominations can be made from May 1st, until May 30th.

The voting poll will be put up May 30th, or June 1st, and remain open for 15 days. The votes will be counted, and the winner  will be announced at the close of the poll.
Who knows, maybe you'll be nominated.



To Nominate a Picture:

1.The picture must be taken by a member of Mycotopia.net - no self nominations.

2. *(Rule adjustment to extended time frame)* 
Picture's must be posted to Mycotopia.net during the current contest month, or within the last 15 days of the month prior.


3. Please include the member's name, the picture to be nominated, and a link to the specific post where picture can be found


4. Please don't forget to vote for your favorite image at the end of the month!

Nominating this interesting shot from Ferretious. I love the contrast of extremes with the tough and arid cactus, shaded by the delicate and fragile mushrooms....

Skywatcher got this one. No easy feat to expose both the red area and not have a blinding blurry white spot at the bottom.

Most of the works that get posted here should be transferred to Mycotopia t-shirts and sold at festivals and online (after artists approvals and releases of course) .......just like peyote and parasols cornucopia

 

I can see many of these silk screened (or even printed for that matter depending on your tastes) on T-shirts.  I don't know what technology is used today but In my day we screen printed them...

 

The talent found in this community is awesome!

The poll box is now closed. A sincere thank you to everyone who participated in any way this month.

I personally had a difficult time selecting just one nomination to vote for this month. I'm sure many of you felt the same way, and every nomination deserves the recognition !

 

Nevertheless, we do have a winner for May. A first time winner ! This photo was a perfectly timed result, which captured a combination of extremes.  A rare brief cohabitation of opposites making a beautiful and well timed photograph..............

 

 

CONGRATULATIONS GO TO FERRITIOUS !!!
