    Hi Y I Lee,

    A few suggestions:

    The shadowing on the letters drops down to the right, whereas the shadow beneath the glass horse rises up to the right. It might work better to match the shadow on your text to the shadow on your image. Also, you might want to consider matching the shadow color. Maybe you could even give the text a "glassy" look (not sure what image editor you're using, but I know it works with mine), though I recognize it might be harder to see that way. I bet you could come up with something close, though.

    Overall, nice job! :)

    Thanks a lot Michael. Your suggestions about the shadowing are brill. I hadn't noticed! I can't wait to put it to my cover designer. Really appreciate you taking the time to have a look and respond. Thanks again. :)

    Hey I suggest that maybe you get a photo bucket account. That will make it easy for you to post samples of your work. I went to the site and didn't find the cover easily, maybe you removed the cover, or I just didn't find it.

    Also, I understand that some people don't like to use their own image for their avatar, but the sooner you pick one the easier it is for other members to spot your posts in an instant.

    Sorry, but Avatars are a pet peeve of mine, also changing your avatar too often can be a bad thing. Tip of the day.. :)
    Here is an example of photo bucket's ease of posting images.
