    I agree, V2 is the best, because of the glow on the text, and it could use some more depth to it...

    apply the image an add a 1.0 gaussian blur, delete the focal
    apple the image again and add a sharpen and delete the background


    p.s
    delete = erase lol

    It's a floating head in a sea of flatness. I don't really like it. Needs much better composition and depth.

    I like the render choice, it's very nice.

    Unfortunately I don't like what you did with the background, it's really "blank" and has no depth besides a little around the face (obviously).
    Your trying to hard with your text, it's competing with the render for the focal point of the signature. Keep your text simple and less flashy, unless
    your text is what your trying to show off, then you need to use some blurring or something to take away from the render, so you have a focal and the viewers
    eye's don't twitch between the two.

    With your background you over did it as well, it's a choatic background nothing solid, there's no room for shading or even something I can pick out with my
    mind, even abstract art has something to see, what I'm saying is there's an idea behind it, here you can tell you didn't really have a plan or pictured something
    you wanted to create, it looks like you were attempting to make something but couldn't create, or get an image you wanted out of it, now making something out
    of the spur of the moment isn't bad, you don't have to picture or have an idea, but you shouldn't want that to show to the viewers, you should want something more
    of an awe, like when someone looks at it they ask, how did they even think of that? The background coloring is very nice though, you could definitely refine it a little more and make a better background.

    When your making a background try not to just throw effects into it, even if your going for abstract, you want to create a flow within the background, with your
    effects, text, and your render. So always try to get something "solid" to look at, something to help create depth, more than just a flash of brushes and smudging
    that you did without thinking about dark coloring and light coloring to add balance and attraction.

    Keep posting, I don't comment to put you down just like to help out on what u can improve.
