Saw this guy in front of a bank handing out baloons as a promotion. Postprocessing in Corel PhotoPaint 12.

Excellent photo. I love the composition and presentation. The only thing I don't like is the stepped gradient in the blue background. I would prefer to see a smooth gradient. I don't know if this is a limitation of Corel Photopaint or a limitation imposed by the color set used. (e.g. 16-bit, 32-bit, etc.)

Actually, I like the first one better. It has more "pizazz!" The oval background along with the border colors seem to give it more "life." The second shot does not have the same impact even though the clown and balloons are identical. This is an excellent example of how presentation really makes a picture.
