The plant was taken in a glasshouse at Kew Gardens and digitally manipulated to produce the colour variation. The frame was taken through a frosted glass window in a rainstorm.

The logo, me being pretentious in my old age Wink.

Hi Frank,
I guess I was trying to emphasise the border and yes you are correct it does overpower the plant.
Your modification is excellent and I shall experiment some more. If only I could get a plant to grow like that for real I would make a fortune Wink
I shall drop the logo as it was just a bit of fun really.
Thanks for your time and effort not just for this critique but for all them.

Ken.

It's a stunning rainbow colour image and I also think the modification looks great. I tend to agree with regard to the wide frame but am pleased you did use it because it tells me that you are creative in looking for textures to complement images. In this case the glass texture needs to be minimal as shown in the modification.

I accept you used a large logo due to the wide space at the bottom but tend to agree with Focus-Man that it needs to be smaller and that the main image needs to grab attention. Great presentation helps too and it's practicing 'trail and error' which will help with improvements.

You could also experiment further with texture work, usually I find non over bearing textures work best but I guess it depends on what kind of work you're processing.

Hope this helps.

Eye catching. I really like this image as presented. Lots of imagination . The rain drops work well for me. Good blending of colour between the glass and background. We are looking at art here so the appeal is fairly subjective. Good work.
I don't mind the logo, you have after all, posted this in a gallery.
Good one
Ian
