If it's hard to see on royal, it's invisible on navy (and the only reason why I know this is due to my Nessie print) and over two thirds of the detail will get lost... mainly the bees and the tips of the grass.
I saw your comment the first time (I really appreciate it, by the way), but didn't get around to changing it. I sort of had to submit and run at that point. I'll poke at it tonight. I tried different colored outlines when I was first working on it, and it made the fireflies look very peculiar, so we'll have to see.
As for the cattails, I actually thought about them when I was originally planning the idea. The thing is that they would I would probably have drawn them in beige, so the focal point of the picture would fall on the brighter colored fireflies. This wouldn't have been bad, but it would have made the design very top heavy and a little dark (even for something titled "summer nights"). I decided to specifically look for a type of flower that blooms even during the summer, to add some brightness to the whole thing.
Maybe the reasoning seems a little weird, but that's what it was. XD
Again, thanks so much for the feedback.
