Cheers Derozio, sorry for not replying earlier..been busy.
Yeah I'm going for more vibrancy and depth lately, it still needs some work as you pointed out so I'll work on it when I have more spare time.
I dislike not having text but I see your point, I'll experiment at bit more in text and try get it as unnoticeable as possible. Behind I feel works a bit better so as to not detract away from the focal point, I'll see.
Yes, definitely agree on the foreground effects, it's just hard to add foreground effects without them detracting focus away from the focal.
