Sorry for the DQ. :-( It's still a lovely image.

Personally, I don't think it should matter how the border was created and I hope the discussion of the rule for borders will change.

I hope it isn't the border that got this dq'd. It shouldn't matter how it was made - it's the border... and it could have been done via a gradient map.

Sorry I couldn't vote on this one, would have been a ten, with border. I am a border person, don't use it much because most voters don't like it but I do. congratulations on tt.

Wow. Double Wow. I am hot and cold over this image. Simply love the minimalism in the work and the colours, but the framing, I'm sorry it's just ugh. A simplistic minimal outer white 5px frame would have complemented the photo...I can't justify a fair vote...the frame is OTT.

God sighed, and not for the first time regretted creating those damnable humans. Not only did he have to put up with their constant sinning, but now his angels had discovered Pink Flamingo lawn ornaments for Heaven.

God tipped a little more bourbon into his coffee, and sighed once more.

I love the gradient from blue to pink and the subject highlighted in the middle. However for me the border took away from this image and was unnecessary.

Absolutely stunning. Love those soft pastel colors.

This is amazing. The vertically centered composition adds to the sense of wonder.
