Absolutely stunning. The border really works well here. I love the suble white line to set the border off from the photo. Composed perfectly. 10.

Wo, very striking shot : )
Though you have turned everything purple it does not look strained, you chose a good tone. The borders to thick for my liking though : (
but still, fantastic shot, very proffesional clarity and like the fact its at nighttime. 8, though if not for the border 9. sorry, thats not particurly helpful : )

Ah! Magical Melbourne. This is beautiful, and the purple is not too brash.I think it is close to being my favourite shot in this challenge.

It's an intriguing image. I like the photograph portion of the image and the scene as a whole, but I really don't like the border. I can't get past it. Sorry.
