Thanks a lot for the comments, guys.
I made another for laffs (basketball, but figured I'd just add it here):
My goal is to include the CN Tower in every image I make; too bad I couldn't get it into the Kid Wonderful image.
Oh and the latest Maracaibo image taking into consideration some of the great recommendations here, basically I darkened up the Jays logo so that it fits better with the overall look and added a nice glow to the text which seems to make it much clearer, now I'm actually starting to figure out how to work with text a lot better, but the program is so deep it's ridiculous (which is a good thing).
One thing I'd like to figure out how to do is to get a layer mask so that the edges of the Jays logo blend into the background. I know I've seen how to do this somewhere, but every time I lasso the part of the logo I want to stand out and hit layer mask, it just cuts out the edges entirely whereas I want it to blend. Thanks!
Also what is the best way to edit it all the way down to sig size? I tried to lower the JPG quality upon saving but I had to put it at like 2/10 to get it under 12 kb; I managed to get a decent image blurring it a bit and reducing it in size and to 50/100 JPG quality in "Save for Web" and ImageReady, but I had no idea how to save this version properly.
