On the composition: It's a pity that we can see only a little part of the hat of the biggest mushroom (but this personal and therefore very arguable). The composition is strong in the direction you painted the stems to. In colour: so far the bottom of the canvas is heavyweighted (lot of dark tones versus a lot of light tones).
I like your technique very much. Details are working fine since we are watching from nearby, and are well executed.

Love the top, including the crop. Light, delicate, airy gills really feels like a mushroom. Cap looks great too. The bottom is feeling congested and dark to me.

What if I carried some of the dark as background in top left corner for balance?

This is quite beautiful
Only critique would be the mushroom (toadstool) on the left
The cap, while probably true to your reference.....no sorry changed my mind.
Looks ok :)
Well done
