Well shoot, this is such a pretty shot, maybe @Dave can still tweak it? It should be more of a focal point.

With the rose dead center, the first 600 pixels are just the background. The focal point really should be inside the first 400 pixels of the banner. There's nothing I can do to fix this one.

Didn't you flip one before? If that rose was at the other end, the logo would have pushed it more toward the center.

I think I liked this one particularly because it seems a study of contrasts. Neither the dull, rough and well-aged branch nor the new, soft and colorful rose bloom was the actual focal point, but it was more of a showcasing of the difference between the two. Smiling

Sue, do you mean flip it upside-down? Confused

Regardless, I still find the banner as it is a very nice, interesting & restful banner. Just IMHO.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

No Chell, just reverse, so that the rose is closer to the ATP logo side. I know there must be an editing program that can do this, not sure which one though.
I love all the elements of the image, so much interest going on!

It was a stunning photo indeed and a beautiful banner. Next time just try framing the subject closer to the left so that more people with not as wide screens can see it better. Smiling
