I like the use of the render and the "in your face" feel to it.
I like the layout of the background and the simple layout design.
The edges of the render could have been blended a bit more and looked like no effort was used to blend it in.
The colors of the background, especially the gray middle part, are too simple and could have use a bit more "pop".
The text for the name is kinda plain.
I like the background and the way you edited the colors of the render to match.
I like the created use of the text and the extra time it went to create the effect.
The render blends well to the busy background without loosing to much detail in the render.
It would have been nice to use more of the allotted size limit to see more detail in the image.
This is a tuff one, I really like both designs very much. With Gannon's I like the clean and un-cluttered look which is more of my style but with Amity75's design I was impress most with the color and how it blended in with the busy background so the winner is...
Good job both of you and thank you for letting me judge.
