  • Vow! This slide is very much high-tech. We're in the 21st century. Very well done. Astonishing colour-harmonies, good place-using, nice balance between capital and non-capital letters. I haven't imagined soft green suiting metal-grey so much. This is quite inspiring. But the star in the middle is my favourite; very spotted exposion and colour-choice.<br /><br/>
