Does it look right to have the sea grass framing the photo just to one corner? I also would love your thoughts on having it in two different directions. It seemed to flow better that way to me, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for all of the feedback, everyone! I've made some changes based on your suggestions... added some tracking to the text, decreased the size of the sea grass around the photo, and changed the sea grass to taper off more instead of an abrupt stop. Let me know if anything else sticks out that needs to change. This is such a helpful community!

I think it would be nice if the grass tapered off a little more...especially on the side. It ends a bit abruptly. I like it flowing in different directions.

I love the placement of the frame. The simplicity of the frame works well with your choice of photo and text. I think your design could work in other color palettes along with the grey choice.

I don't mind that it is just one corner, although i feel like the see grass frame could be scaled down some so it's not competing with the photo for attention. I would add some spacing between letters to give my text a bit more breathing room. Best of luck!

I'd space out the tracking on all of the text a bit. I love the gray!
