I used Photoshop 2.0 Elements for effects and adjustments. First I added the oil pastel effect. Then I added the recessed frame effect. Last I adjusted the levels and hue/saturation. Also this shot was taken with a 0.3 mega pixel digital camera.

The frame does NOT add to the image. I like the little heart-shaped dark area near the center, but the frame screams 'gimmick' and I can't judge the rest of the shot on its own merit.

Interesting view, I like the colors and the blurred effect. I think in this case the wide frame draws one away from the center of the shot. Very nice composition, perhaps a thinner frame or solid black frame would help to force the viewer down into the hole in the center of the picture.

I don't know what to think of this one... What is supposed to be in the center? the lack of the flowers that looks like a hole? The frame inside the picture? what ever the awnser is I don't like it.

This is just ugly for me to look at.

this is not centered, this is overall composition! It is a moving picture, in the sense that it looks like the flowers are falling down..the picture is not sharp, too saturated and you did something to sharpen it, but it damaged your pixels..the border is strange..I like the colours, but the rest, I think, needs more improvement...

odd border, and interesting that there's no real centered focal subject. Not sure it works for this challenge, but aesthetically nice.
