Feedback is welcome. Does photo compete too much with the design?

Last minute polling for photograph?

I like B - the color photo is nice since the design is mainly black and gray!

I like the color photo. I might go a littler lighter on the confetti and make the overall shape a little more irregular instead of the perfect circle.

I chose B, because I like the splash of color.

I think your instinct is right--my eye immediately goes to the photo, and your graphic gets lost. I would try making the party hats larger / prominent. And perhaps a different script font; this one is a little tough to read. I like your color palette and the confetti is really fun!

Carole, I really like your new year's hat illustrations but I do think that you need to change the font of the text. It's seems very hard to read. Maybe if you increased the design area and made the photo area smaller, you'd get more room to work with. Maybe you can do another option and have a poll.

I think if you use a bolder font for your greeting, your illustration area will balance out the photo a little better and draw attention to your hats and confetti.

Love your illustration of the hats with the photo. I can't read the text past love...it looks a bit fine for the illustration. Nice one!
