    The colors and composition look very good to me.
    I do think, however, that it would look better if the closeset end of the bench were a tad sharper,

    I like it, but there is almost to much white there for my taste.

    I agree Skippy. That was my nitpick thing too. And the border probably didn't help. I haven't used this software much since I've had it. Looks like I need to work with it some more to get things just right. Thanks for commenting. ~~Peg

    You might try a different color for the matt.

    Think I'll just lose it altogether. It looks better without it on the original I think. ~~Peg

    Here's a re-edit without the mat and some of the white removed. ~~Peg

    That's much better. Or for me anyway. What are those so very colorful bushes in the background?

    Thanks Skippy. I believe they are a form of coleus. ~~Peg

    Have seen coleus that tall around here. I like them too. They come in so many different colors.

    Mine never get that tall. I assume these are fed something to make them grow tall. Thanks for commenting. ~~Peg
