Great Idea!!! just from a technical point of view, the light on the left is a bit overpowered because there is a bright white circle on the left in the read background, and there is a dark area in the red background on the right. still great shot!

Hi again, i'm now on different monitor and I can see the gradient effect you were going for (I have serious monitor issues)

I bumped you up to a 10 =P You deserve it!!!

Voted earlier, just coming back to comment. I like that it contains a book, but in a different way than others I've seen. I also like that you are using it to promote another language idea.

Written language, a wonderful form of expression. I wish that literacy were universal, though I suppose your title refers to the concept of love. Great lighting/colors in this.

Have seen this done before, and the effect here, while good, is not outstanding. The red is a nice touch for this, but the uneveness doesn't help. Also not sure this book is the best. I would like to see the cover cropped out, and a book where the pages sit a bit flatter to make the effect work better
