Looks like DOF but not really...like smudged and blurred in PS. Maybe not...?

top of the shroom seems over sharpened and has halo

looks like your little shroom is just outside the back end of your DOF - beautiful colors

interesting shallow DOF here, although it might have worked better having the entire mushroom in focus, rather than just the front edge and a slice of the ground

The blurred background looks great. I think the foreground does not need the same effect, and maybe could be cropped out.

makes well for a difference from your average macro shot.

I would bet that this isn't currently scoring very well. Its not within typical DPC tastes. For me at least, the image is intriguing but seems to be 'unfinished.' A guess here - you were working with high ISO as you were in deep shade. I'm guessing you were using a Canon but that is irrelevent. I think this image needs the bottom blur cropped out - as a viewer, it makes me take a stutter step when entering the image. this will also pull the main subject a little more off center and really force me to look at the detris of the forest floor whose colors and patterns I find fascinating. The focus is good, but slightly deeper would have been better. This would build a connection between the mushroom and the detris that is stronger than what is here. An interesting subject for the challenge that I could explore for a while. Unfortunately you won't find many voters willing to spend the time. Good Luck!
