Collection location: North Beach, Perth, Western Australia, Australia [Click for map]
Bright orange bracket fungi growing on a variety of melaleuca (paper bark) in Star Swamp (surrounded by water). Fresh speciman rubbery to touch, rather than woody. Brackets up to 50mm across. Another possible ID would be Piptoporus australiensis (Curry Punk) but I didn’t notice a yellow staining juice or a curry-like odour.

I was looking at the observation on my ipod touch. Nice contrast!
I haven’t edited the colouring in any way. The colouring of these fungi was very vibrant against the pale melaleuca branch, and in shaded conditions. The camera’s white balance may have intensified the colouring a little, but certainly not intentionally.
Looks as though you’ve used selective coloring. No worries.
I’ve not used photoshop on any of these photos. The only editing I’ve done on these photos is to crop and magnify the images. The reason I choose to do this is because I don’t have a macro lens and can’t take good close-up shots.
