    No frame on it right now, the black is just more mat board, and it's all double-side taped to a busted piece of foam board so I could shoot the pic. I'm gonna do a much better pic when I can get some more light, and that'll be the one that goes on my website :)

    I usually hate thick borders but I think you did really well. Goes great with the picture.

    Personally, I usually think optical centering looks kind of dorky :dunno: I just prefer literal centering, at least on shots like this. I can't describe why, but I just do. I haven't tried much optical centering, but I know I don't appreciate it.
