I like the effect, but the colours don't do much for me: cold blues  
and milky yellows don't go together well IMO.
Might also be because one expects another colour scheme for a sax  

Just from a practical standpoint: I'n sign my images out of the  
picture instead of in.

Thanks for showing the experiment,
