Doh! Emats, she wasn't asking for a critique. It's perfectly beautiful!
...also, aperture isn't the only thing that adds the bokeh effect. It's where you are on the telephoto end as well that will add even more blur...not just aperture. So, sure, you could stand back further, be at F2.8, and at maximum reach to greatly reduce the background sharpness but as Aprman said, there's no rule for how sharp the background must be. I think it's perfect, you can still tell that the trees are Douglas Fir.
Oh, I don't mind critiques as long as they are thoughtful, which I think it was.
This shot, however, was taken with a point-n-shoot, in the rain, and in a rush so it's not really a well thought out image. I was just trying to make sure I had good focus and composition. And no drops on the lens.
Thanks, Ingo (and sorry for the late reply on this...I told you my comment box was stuffed! lol!) I found these mushrooms when I'd asked Jack to stop so I could visit Iron Creek Falls. It's the very first waterfall I ever saw and I was just amazed with it. So, whenever we pass by, I like to walk the 500 ft down the path to say "hi". Jack waited in the car and I just took my little Canon D10 (the underwater one) to take a few shots for posterity. And then I found these mushrooms and got caught up trying to get a nice shot of them.
