Too much Bokeh?

I was practicing taking photos of my Daughter the other night at a local park. Very little available light beneath the trees so I tried flash. I was using my NEX-6 and SEL55-20 lens. . She was about 15 feet from me and the waterfall in the background ranged from 15 to 30 or so yards behind her.

Does the picture look fake to you? Like one of those old view masters? Or, like it was taken in a studio in front of one of those fake screens? What did I do wrong, or right?

Oh, OOC JPEG shot in aperture priority mode. All settings at their defaults.
