So I have a question. Would you like this better if it were brighter and if so just a little or quite a bit brighter?

Some people have asked what this is. Well I prefer to keep it a mystery so that you can enjoy the patterns. If you really would like to know, send me a message.

Thanks for looking.

    Love it!

    I think that it does not need any more bright. I think that it is a soft image with a few delicate colors and this is what he needs. Give more bright would break the delicacy of the image and even his balance.
    For me it is a perfect image.

    I like the color and texture as it is but if you want to increase the contrast it might be more dramatic??

    Dynamite textures!!! Perhaps a boost in contrast would make it "pop" a tad more... ? Either way, it's a lovely image!!!

    Wonderful abstract.I love it the way it is, but would be interested in seeing a tad more contrast just to compare. I love the mutedness of the palette.
