Ciabatta al Funghi

Hi Everyone,

I'm Nik. This is my first attempt at ciabatta al funghi using the poolish version of Peter Rienhart's recipe from The Bread Baker's Apprentice. I have included a few pictures of the process. I welcome any suggestions for improvement.

It held together pretty well while proofing here.

Transitioning from couche to oven the dough spread out a bit. The crust was thin and broke easily when I touched it.

This is what it looked like on the inside.
