The green paint is just perfect with the coloring of the fungus. Great find and well presented.

Very nice capture. The colors are a bit too vibrant for my taste but they work well with the subject. There's something odd going on with DOF. Focus on the mushrooms themselves is a bit soft. Sounds like I don't like the photo, but that's not true. It's one of my top 3 picks this challenge. It's a beautiful photo in spite of these pretty minor distractions.

Nice angle on the detail. Dont know if it's just the wood or what but it seems to not be level.

Great colors. nice composition. Would have been even better if the Toadstools were at the bottem of the hoto, and not so centered. 8.

Love the colors and textures of this. And nature will grow something just about anywhere, won't she?

This is the fifth time I have to look at your picture. I just love the contarst between the color. Too bad that there's an orange-brown area below the mushrooms. Luckily most of it is covered by their shadow. It really appeals to me how the mushrooms try to 'break through' the overwhelming green wood. The contrast is emphasized even more by the difference between the plant's smooth and the wood's rough texture. A great shot. 10.

The colors work very well together.

Great pic. Nice colors, relaxing. Beautiful as the big one seems to protect the small one. However not so bizzarre.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

what did you paint the wood around the mushrooms? I wanted to give it a 10 but after thinking about this I'm not so shure. If only I knew, oh well you get a 6
