After the cold and snow of my last few posts what better than the warmth of Mum and Dads lounge fire at uZiningweni, Almeria!

The fire uses olive wood form the local Spanish mountains, which makes it hiss and pop as the olive oil in the wood ignites.

I like the image for the dancing swirl of the flames, always magical..

Ive lightened the image a little to bring out some of the detail on the dark wood. However I still feel its lacking something. I thought perhaps a border would help, and tried a few but felt black added nothing, white was too harsh, and colours picked from the image looked too artificial. Perhaps one of those line borders just inside the edge in a sympathetic colour would look good. Anyone know how to do them?

Other ideas and comments welcome..
