only nov... I was waiting until we decide which one to ultimately go with... i can put that one up no problem though if you guys think i should vs the one thats there now.

I'll do another one without the shape layer, and try to get the text to stand out a bit more while on the middle left. Or perhaps put it on the right hand side where it will stand out more against the darker background? What u reckon?

I think it stands out just fine on the left? yea just lift it up a little as you said. If you can make the text stand out more without detriment then why not i suppose, we can see how it looks and decide.

Obviously theres more contrast if on the right, but i just feel that the site title should be on the left? it just seems more correct for a site in a layout sense? But again id like to hear others thoughts also.

Text and titles on web banners probably look better on the left, yes.

I got over the issue by flipping the image so the City is on the left hand side.

When dealing with light and glow effects you really need a dark background for the effect to work properly. There's no use applying a glow effect to a light background, it just doesn't work properly. Note also by applying the text to a dark background you get a natural orange glow refraction coming through the rain drops. It's all these important details which sells the illusion properly to the eye.

I 'liked' it for that last part... dont spend too long in there though, the laundry needs doing.

Anyway...

In all seriousness you do have a point, pfizi, about that banner, it looks good too, could argue that its cleaner with the text over the water.

Agree the city on the right looks better.

But the orange letters are definately better than the yellow ones.

There is "definately" no yellow. *soundofbreakingglass* There is only bright orange.

I'll give a listen to it later... I'm off to a beach or something likewise.

P.S. the letters go from orange to yellow. :D

The problem with having the text over the water is it weakens the whole glow effect, as glow effects work much better on darker backgrounds. Hence why I applied the text to dark shape layer in the first edit. The effect just doesn't look right with the text over the water, the colour looks weak, and you don't get hardly any glow refraction. Which is exactly what you don't want on such effects.

Effects that involve glow need to be applied to darkish backgrounds, otherwise the effect doesn't work properly. Like this effect below, it simply would.'t work nowhere near as well on a light background.

Yes, of course I made it. I got the idea from a tutorial though. It could actually be improved by adding a few things, such as a ground plane, and a background. . or by creating an electric effect on the text with a second lightning strike.. :chuckle:

You and your banners, mate.. :chuckle: I think the one up there at the moment looks perfectly fine for now. I will at some time add a background and an electric effect to that last comp, to see what it turns out like.. :chuckle:

Yea, but come on.... that one is too good to put it back in the waiting line and you know it. :D

Looks awesome and clean. Perhaps it's better to top the forum?
