Default Back ground decisions ???

Working on Dan"s Hawk ,Trying different background elements ,Looking at different versions ,and combinations ,the floating branch ? I trimmed the one w/ the black background to join the frame ,but did not look good ,maybe with a different frame ? Anyway,I like the darker background's better than the white,see what you think,easy to swap either ,any suggestions ,or opinions welcome !

I like a darker background. Do you have a background that is dark but a little lighter then the inside of the hawk. Looking for a way to highlight the hawk from the background.

The darker back ground but for sure not that blue. More of a sky blue may work though. jmho

I agree the darker colors would look the best.

Color wise I prefer the black but I am not sure I would go with a glossy background. I much prefer a flat finish for my backgrounds.

I like the dark background, but maybe a dark Indigo blue like the night sky would look good too. Other wise the black is my vote.
