The boarder takes my eye away from the wonderful colors of the photograph.

Nice effect, with the rust-coloured background.

Great shot. I love the detail and focus here. The color saturation and warm palette is nice also. Don't care much for the border as it seems robust and 'crowds' the subject to me. Just my humble opinion, nice shot nonetheless... 7

Very nice, Love the natural color of age. The background really accentuates the subject well.

Black framing would have made this image much stronger, but definately a burst of color...

I would have like this picture more without the border. The image itself was enough.

Sorry, I don't like the border

I like the border matching the subject. I hope too many people don't blast you for a distracting border.

Nice color. I think the boarder is distracting. Take away from the impact of the subject.

Good picture, but frame ruins it since it becomes part of the pump.

I think the border ruins the impact of the turquoise pump for me. I'd like it with a simple black one, or maybe none at all.

i like the matching border contrasted against the yellow/gold.

Good contrast and interesting subject matter, but the green border really kills it for me.
