Hello Vito,

The photo is great, but presentation isn't very effective.

The white frame ruins the overall impact of the image because the most contrast is between the edges of the picture and the frame. If you must use a white frame, then consider a buffer space and use a color of your choice that lead the viewer into your image instead of out of it. I recommend you try to select a light shade of green found in the grass.

hmm...i see what you mean..
but i think it's the black backgrounds doing..
it makes the white seem way brighter..
if you view this on a white background (how i have my desktop wallpaper set for white around the image)
it doesn't seem to so contrasty..

i'll reframe it and see if it works better on the black..

I didn't edit your image for demonstration because I feel you are talented enough to do it yourself, but here is a thread that demonstrates what I am telling you here.

You may have missed it.

true true

lol, whenever i pick a color out of the image..it always looks out of place..because of how different the color looks on its own as compared to in the image..

maybe it's a subtle effect that i have to just come back in ten minutes and see how it looks...

lol, i'll play with it a bit..and get back to you
