"Dragon" is a good entry into the Burst of Color challenge.

I really like the subject you have found, you have really found a burst of color in every day life. The subject is really enchanting and grabs my eye.

I would be curious to see the image if you kicked up the contrast a little more to bring out more color in the image. Also I would be interested to see the Dragon placed on maybe the first third from the left to kind of off center the image.

Overall I think this is a very strong piece for the challenge and you have done a very nice job. I look forward to your future challenges.

Good choice of subject. But, doesn't the character in the background disturb your eye? A selective focus might help this photo. Or, a more dramatic composition.

Though there is plenty of color, the challenge description says "that offsets your subject from the rest of the photo" not to poke at you or anything, i was just saying that it dosent really offset itself from the rest of the pohot. ok, now im just rambling on and on. lets start over shall we?
Nice photo, lots of color, kind of busy though.

Perhaps cropping in more to further feature the dragon head would be worth a try.

too much to focus on
