I increased the exposure and color temperature.

i agree…
however, for the sake of argument, i think they should be printed and collected.

on another note, the name proposal of “Gymnopilus spectabilis (Fr.) Singer subsp. spectabilis” is ridiculous…

The color balance is off

Even if the photo was in black and white, there is only one taxon that this could be.

if you look at the pileus of the same mushroom…
the print looks a bit off for Gymnopilus…

they look like Gymnopilus…
however, that spore drop on the pileus makes me think twice…

if you can get a print, that would be cool.
