the font in general is good. I like it!

But I think it looks too technical with the rose.

I think an even more simple font would be good.

I agree with Kex, the font should relate to the mode of the picture and this font just does not do that for me on this picture.

I was thinking along the lines of an elegant script, but how about this very simple font?


PS in case you're interested, the font is called Coronet. I would be happy to share it with you, as I am pretty sure it was freeware; I got ita long time ago.

Plus I performed one blur filter on the first line to smooth it out.

i quite like the font Vito, and the way you presenting the whole thing. It might look a bit "technical" but i ve often seen this font used in expensive posh cards. If the flower was a different more contrasty vivid colour may be it wouldnt fit, but with the misty gray background colour imo works well.

OOPS! Sorry, "Cennerik" NOT "Coronet"

Again, if you'd like it you're welcome to the file. It is Windows TTF.
