Well, this is a revised version of outtake ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30049/120/396737.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/30049/120/396737.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.

I hadn't planned on resubmitting, but I hadn't cleaned up my light tent after doing the original shot Thursday night. Saturday morning I went to straighten up and this mushroom had morphed into something entirely new! ;^) Not sure that this is as solid an indicator for 'Leading Lines' now that the fins are collapsed and wavy, but I couldn't resist.
