This is an image that I've really been looking forward to sharing. I had spent a little time testing with different backgrounds, several of which were patterns I liked on different wrapping papers. The distance to the background is such that the patterns weren't discernible but I noticed gradients forming where stripes of different colors ran across the paper. I played with that for a while and decided to go with this one. I loved how the greens on the background complimented the yellows, oranges, and greens on the subject. I hope you enjoy as well!
