    Very nice. I really like this treatment. The layout isn't as nice as the other one, and the type seems out of place.

    One at a time there sparky...

    This was my favorite. coloring/image treatment are both FANTASTIC. Love the concept here. The type might look better in white though.

    This isn't very good... Image blending is very poor, background seems random, no flow in the layout.... Highlights are blown out, and image is over filtered. Type font choice is horrible, and type treatment is unsuiting for really anything.... :p

    Why on earth would you blend text? No use in having it if you're going to hide it... On the other hand, maybe we should blend traffic signs into their surrounding's a bit more...see how that works out? Imagine if all businesses painted their signs the same color as their buildings. Not a good idea....

    I see no concept here, no form, no function, no design... There's a difference between design and photoshop play. :nomnom:

    maybe the words "blending in" were the wrong ones :)
    I tried to say that i did try to make the text stand out but not ruining the design, which failed, since i already had problems with fitting text in sigs in the past.
    As I said, it has been 4 years so i still have a lot to learn (again), but i'll try to come back and amaze you ;)
    thx for the opinion !

    Thanks for the feedback. People say I've been making "good" sigs but I'm glad I got someone who is experienced and honest. I've never really used a tutorial before, so I understand how there is no flow/it's random. I'll try to work on that and put more effort into sigs. Again, thanks.

    This is one of the best I've seen from you.

    The highlights could be toned down a bit.

    On the up side... The coloring is fantastic, layout is nice, and the type is very interesting. The piece reads well while also being attractive...making this a functional and aesthetic design. Great example.

    On the down side though... The image quality falls a bit short of perfect, and some of the filters could be toned down a bit.

    over all... 8/10
