8. I'm not going to talk about the photo - it's great!

I'll talk about the design.
I like how busy it is, in a way. I think it is very cool and arresting. But I have a beef with the words and the colors of the words and their placement. Talking about it being busy does not mean ALL of it can be busy. To chose this wild typestyle, comprised of colors that don't repeat in the flowers and then put it on top of a big blossom is overkill in my opinion.
A shirt this show stopping has to have some rest for the eye. If the letters were simple, and just black it would work great.
Or if they color matched the florals and the florals were muted or that large rose omitted it would work better.

You are on a very fine roll. I design things like this for a living (until I retired a year ago) so I feel OK to give you my opinion. Mostly my beef is with the strong competition of the words "New York City" and the rest of the images. They can't all be front and center.
Does this make sense?

I love what you are doing, especially the part about asking for feedback. You have lots of talent.
