Too Ostentatious?

This is the same text set in another cut of the same typeface (Poetica) both inspired by Arrighi's script. This one obviously has a ton of ligatures, alternate glyphs, endings, swash capitals, etc. Is it too much? Too fancy? Thanks for your input. Below is the original I typeset yesterday (Centaur).

  1. Nick,
    I like the centaur better since you already have a more intense script...
    I like it a lot though but you can try to have the red branches-script crossing over the G more naturally maybe without making the blank space around those parts...or using a very soft shadow.
    I look forward to see your progress!
