This layout is just out of balance. I'm thinking the big cluster is too big, but perhaps the large photo on top is also throwing things off kilter?
These photos were taken from a garage at work. It was one of those days that were slightly overcast & the leaves were at peak and they just glowed! The technique used on the big photo darkened the colors if anything. I didn't mind the triple embellishments of the challenge, in fact, I have an extra couple sets for the small photo. I love building clusters, although this isn't one of my best.
