I thought this quite delightful - a gentle and warm "follow the yellow-brick road" kind of sense to it. Nicely seen and captured.

Nice colourful shot. Good use of shallow DOF and great angle to get them from.

There is something about this shot that gives it an almost fake feel, I think it might be the highly saturated colours. It's not necessarily a bad thing here, it gives the shot a sort of Fairytale look to it.

a nice photo, I would have liked it more if the DOF encompassed the two larger mushrooms in the back

A little March of the Toadstools :-) I like how they meander through the shot.
