32 - The borders don't add well to this image. They feel too sharp and contrasted. Plus, one corner being so light makes them feel a bit uneven.
24 - The icon is too dark, and the light that tries to fix it only washes it out.
13 - The choice of text feels really plain, and the wording doesn't make much sense with the image.
15 - The crop makes it really hard to tell that the image is. It's a nice idea for color, but it doesn't translate very well into black and white.

Favorite Icon
25 - Great use of texture (or is that custom text? Either way, it looks nice.)
29 - Nice text placement, and the little leaf brush compliments it well.

#30 - The icon is way too sharp.
#7 - The image is too light and especially Scully looks over sharpened.
#13 - The icon could have used some contrast and the text placement is irritating with the way it's cut off. A different font might have been better as well.
#21 - The icon is over sharpened and the white block in the upper left corner looks out of place. The text makes the layout of the icon look a bit cluttered where it is.

Favorite Icon
#29 - Lovely cut and just the right amount of contrast.
#20 - The crop is brilliant, even though the image could have been a bit lighter.

33 - the leaf is a little bit hard to distinguish - i think the icon needs a bit more contrast and also a little bit of sharpening.
22 - the icon seems a bit cluttered, and the text really takes away from the icon itself. the picture is really hard to make out as well. less is more, i think.
30 - the icon seems a little bit too bright for the cap resolution. i suggest that you try and pic a more hires pic next time.
25 - i think that the idea of the icon is really good, but neither the text nor the photo seem to be the focal point of it. either make the text brighter or make the figure more prominant next time.

Favorite Icon
12 - i love love love the silhouette effect when it's used right - and this icon is spot on. the image placement is fantastic.
19 - i love the cropping on this one. it's not too obscure, which is great. there's just the right amount of contrast too - basically, it's very well done.

#39 - while the cropping is lovely, the way the black and white was created (for lack of a better word), makes scully's face look awfully washed out.
#20 - the icon is just a little bit too dark, making it hard to see her face.
#2 - the image is a bit dark, and the text is hard to read.
#22 - i'm uh... just not sure what's going on in the image.

Favorite Icon
#21 - i love the texture use, it's really pretty.
#13 - the icon itself is really pretty, and the text really adds to it.
