That's quite beautiful. My only thought is there appears to be a black border in addition to the black background? If so, on my screen (OLED phone display), the border is only visible at the bottom, and so creates a kind of base strip rather than a frame. Maybe a frame made from diamonds and emeralds would be attractive?

Stewart, well spotted arghhh ... I needed a straight edge along the bottom - so I cut a slice and pasted as a layer and turned it upside down ... for speed just to whizz it up here ... can do better

I do like it the way it is, as the image is evocative of a museum setting, where a base or pedestal would be preferred. So as it stands it looks as though you were photographing at the local (refridgerated) museo. I always like photos that give me a sense (correctly or otherwise) of standing where the photographer stood.
