    Looking good Tricks!

    Agree about the background, I would personally make it a little less red, maybe desaturdate a little to make it more pastely.. brick red. also thought it would look good if you could have a slightly lighter shade or black (dark grey) for the highlights.

    And finally I wouldnt have the longest 'arms' going so far out to the edge of the image. You need maybe have 50+ pixels gap or have one going off the image and one not, or one big gap one small. I dunno >.<

    Really liking it so far tho, it reminds me of a dark sea and you can only see the shadow of the object thru the mist. And the way youve faded some of the 'arms' out as if theyre pointing in the opposite direction to you.

    Hope you know what i mean when i keep saying 'arms' lol

    If it were a sort of sea bed, be good to have almost solid seperated black area ontop of that gradient. so from the bottom you see pure black, then a distinct end to that where the 'almost black' will fade into the red.

    *stops going on and on and on and on...* :p

    The gradient background is a bit much, you could town down the colours there by making the actual length of the gradient longer, perhaps even longer than the canvas.

    I like the dark shape in the middle, it just needs something more added to it. White/purple highlights maybe? More shape accents? i'll get back to you on that.

    Actually I don't remeber you first english rose :( do you have a link so i could see it?
    Still it's great to see you working on something new.
    This picture is very elegant,I like it very much so far. The rose is very beautifull, i like a lot those "wires" (I can't remember the name of it) that come out of the rose. I would suggest you added some more "wires" but change the colours of some making them red or bordeaux.
    As for the background, I think it works well with the picture, the red colour works great. Perhaps it a bit too dark in the bottom, but I would like to see other people's opinions.
    Finally, are you planning on adding some text to the picture?
