Is the handlettering too crowded by the elements?

So great Jackie! I might just nudge the name down and right the tiniest bit to even out the negative space around the left side.

I actually do like the lettering without the extras (and I love the text choice- definitely a favorite song of mine, personally). I feel like the balance is a little top-heavy? What if the lettering was a little smaller?

Voted D b/c I like the more simple take. Opt C would be my 2nd choice.

D for sure! The focus becomes clearer and it guides the eye nicely down to the photo :) love this!

I chose D. These photo challenge would be so much easier if you didn't have to use a photo! Ha! I'm agree with Erin. Or, maybe try a horizontal photo?

I love your hand lettering. Option C. because you have those lovely branches still (the others with the dots will make a great pattern for backers etc) but also I love D.

D for me. I like the simplicity of the hand lettering and the look of the watercolor type. Maybe the cross could be a smidge larger? The gold is lovely, too, but something about the blue just drew me in more.

I love that bright pop of blue against the bw photo. It really stands out.

I pick D, the watercolor blue is lovely. But would like to see the name in the centre like it is in others. The lettering is really pretty!

It does feel a bit busy. I'd love to see it with just the lettering since you have such a modern placement of the photo. Or even something in between - like no branches but yes dots?

Great concept w/ the lyrics! the elements seem to crowd the lettering a bit... but if the elements were a thinner weight, it would may give more breathing room for the text. :)

It does seem a bit crowded. I personally like it that way, but if you wanted it to be less busy, I would choose either the branches or the dots. I'm really into branches this year for some reason, so that's what I'd keep, but I think they're both good options.
