Wow, mickie was much more visible in the thumbnail than the full version. Something about this color combo really weirds out my eyes. I don't think I've ever seen an image quite like this on DPC.....

I would say so, Kind of hard to see it. I had to back away from the computer. There is a lot going on here and I think it might hurt your score.
