i knew the frame might be an issue in this picture.....i thought it was cute...it did get a few people who really liked and actually complimented the frame, so i guess at least it's something subjective bringing this one down, rather than a technical error....

This was my favorite. I loved the little girls red hair, she's beautiful. I didn't even notice the frame.

I think the border is darling. Don't listen to them. The minute you do something unique here, people get all in a wad. You're showing creativity and humor. Go with that. And your score is nothing to sneeze at, either. Congrats.

Great shot. Unfortunately, the border is distracting which held this picture reaching the top. Would love to see this picture with the cooler thinner border.

Border is a bit much. Love the shot though. :-)

It's a nice summertime image. I think the border is distracting.

I really like this overall. The watermelon's a bit over-saturated for my taste, but it sure looks tasty!

The image is lovely, but that border is making my eyes go funny. I love the clean background of the sky; it makes her stand out wonderfully.

I like the pic, the border is creative, but distracting.

I'm not sure what makes this photo so great more, the pink border, the red watermelon, or the red hair. Very nice!

So cute! I'm partial to redheads.

i think this would be good even without the border

very cute picture - just my personal preference but I think the pink in the boarder is a bit much - not saying that it shouldn't be there but perhaps it should be just a bit thinner than the white so that there is a progression of the boarder - 9

Nice idea, the frame is bit too much, and maybe if her eyes were looking into the camera, 5.

Great shot. Loved the oversized watermelon look.
I'm not a fan of the border in this. It's cute, but a bit too overpowering.

So precious. The color of the watermelon really pops against this blue sky. Love it

I think the border is a bit much, but this photo rocks.
