Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Yikes, this is eye scratching colour mate!
Think I'd be making a selection around that black top and pulling most of the blue saturation out of it, it would probably balance up with the greens and yellows a little better,

@Curly: If only I could do it over again without losing my comments. :-)
