photo, the idea of all white a shadowed or colored simple image of a plant, drink etc behind the text would be amazing vs borders. i can down load some from shutter fly. this is one of my fave things in graphic design.
Dramatic and forceful! A great deal of movement which adds to the fine and clean-cut appearance of the model. Image focused counter to the text. The thin line that frames a triangle around the text helps to separate text from image.
