I like it, but depending on what else is in the frame, I was thinking a wider crop with the subject off-center; a sort of "small mushroom, big world" effect. I haven't experienced a monsoon, but seeing some rain in the shot would have added to the effect I'm imagining.
Hi Bob, I am extremely sorry for this delay. I was out of town in Palakad, a remote town in India, where my wife’s house is. It is inside a plantation next to reserved forest. There is no internet there. Only dial up connection, which will never work
By the way we had a baby boy last week, baby and mother are fine. It is our second child. Since my wife was in hospital I was taking care of our elder child. I just came back two days ago.
About the photo, set EV -.7 I think. I have the original picture which I will download.
