You wanted me to give you a critique for this one. I'm telling everyone this; don't mind the star-ratings - they aren't informative.
You're showing that you know your way around a camera and this is a good macrophotography. There isn't really much to say apart from I would recommend you to change the composition to stand out more from the crowd of macrophotographs out there. Having the mushrooms more offset would possibly give you a more interesting view.
I'll link you a video from Scott Kelby on the subject. [link] This video gave me some wakeup calls and hopefully you'll get some ideas yourself on how to think when out there doing what you enjoy
You've got a good focus here and I think it's important to show some detail apart from the obvious , the foreground is very good.
When it comes to the post-processing I would try to make the mushrooms pop a little more as they are quite pale in color. I think you could achieve this by adding just a tiny bit of contrast. As for the rest of the post processing and the type of presentation is so individual that I can't really agree or disagree. What I like to think about things like that is really "if it looks good, it is good."
I hope this was helpful and I can't say underline it enough to everyone, have a look at the video eventhough it's 1hr long
First off, these little mushrooms are adorable! What a great find.
I do agree with Torivarn that I wish the mushrooms were not dead center and that I would boost the exposure and contrast a bit. However, that's about all I would say could be improved. Since he beat me to mentioning all that I'll just talk about what I really enjoy.
I love the detail of the moss in the foreground and the little strand curling up the mushrooms. It makes the grouping into a group of 3, which makes it a more dynamic image. I also love the cozy and affectionate feel. Your focus and color tones are very good as well. They aren't over saturated or too bright and the lighting highlights the mushroom caps very well.
