-Carlos Beltran
-"Instrumentality"
-And either one of these pictures (preferably the first one, but whichever you can get to work best)

Do you want this picture as the background?

I can work on this tonight and see what I come up with.

Either as background, or as part of it. Just as long as it is in the banner.

Am I on the right track?

Needs a border I guess and maybe Beltron sticks out too much still? He seems a little bright and maybe a little close. Maybe need to work on blending him in a little. How is the color for Instrumentality? It was pretty tough finding a color that's easily readable through the black and green along the top.

I'm pretty new at this but I try! :-)

It's not bad. You can take a slice of the pic if you want to reduce the squash. Just try to center on the numbers if you can.

The blue is a little dark I think. Still a lot better and not squashed.

I changed it from orange because it got really hard to read when I blew up the picture.

I'm done for tonight, I'll be back on tomorrow to fix anything if you need. Beltran looks a little different too, way too bright now it seems. I dunno... I'm so confused.

:-b


EDIT:

I lied. I lightened the text, messed with Beltran a little.

That's the best one in my opinion. The only problem is the text. If it looks like it fits in nice with the background you can't hardly read it, if you make it easy to read it sticks out like a sore thumb.

This looks very good; I just wish the text was easier to read. Could you tool around with the text color just a bit more? If you can't find something that works, the gray/silver will be fine.

EDIT: Perhaps try a light shade of blue; something between the dark blue and the gray. And take out that blur effect.

Ok I'll wrap it up later this afternoon when I get home. I'll go a little ligher shade of blue and get rid of the background blur.

Added a little light and shadow. One of the problems I'm having is when I save for web some of the quality is lost and the words don't look the same as they do when I'm working on it.

This one looks way better though. That blur stuff was dumb... :-b

I believe you've finally struck gold on this one. The backlighting effect does wonders to make it stand out.

Thank you so very much, this is awesome.
