PostSubject: Can I please have you opinion..   Wed Oct 20, 2010 11:49 am

I'm starting my own NRL blog, and was wondering if you could give me any feedback on this banner I whipped up. It is only the first version and I plan on making some changes, so your opinion would be appreciated.

Cheers

Yeah mate nice job. Maybe the background could have a stadium in the background? rather than just black

sounds good man looking forward to reading it..

regarding the banner i found the white writing down the botton to be a little difficult to see in the grass. maybe if the grass was darker i could read it easier. also perhaps just a bit more detail on the picture as ya really have to look at it closely to see the finer points.

overall i like it mate, looking good

I see what you mean about that text down the bottom. I might keep it white but give it a black outline, which will define it a bit more. Cheers mate

Also, I was just mucking around with different effects for the picture. That is some sort of "pastel' mask haha which gives it the blur. Will check out some other ones as well

Yeah I agree with The Tank. It would be good to see a stadium or a crowd in the background at a lower opacity, rather than just the plain black.

Have updated the text down the bottom with a black border to make it stand out against the grass a bit better.

I wouldn't have a stadium background... not everything has to resemble the current TFW banner. If you had the stadium in the background it would clash with the text and make it difficult to read/remember.

Also some of the more effective banners on the net have little/no background image.

Sometimes less is more. Keep it as is.

The background of the banner will depend on the background of the blog.

i reckon that looks perfect as it is.

the stadium thing has been done a bit from what i see and the black kinda puts an emphasis on the other images and text in the banner.


really well done.

As I said, maybe not a stadium itself...But if you could find an awesome shot of a big crowd, and put that there it could look good if you got it right Smile

Maybe instead of players, as it looks like you support the Titans, maybe a bunch of fans cheering their team, or even keep it simple with a steeden on a kicking tee..

Cheers bro

Have just added some buttons to it, as well as a bit of a border. What do you guys reckon? Also I have reverted to the original image without editing it. Which image do you prefer (the one of Mannering I mean)

All thoughts and opinions are appreciated and will be taken on board. Cheers guys

I like it without the border, it just looks nice and simple. Also that fuzzy effect on the players is better.

Agree with Roger, I definitely like it with the fuzzy effect, and without the glow around edges.

Not sure about the border, cant make up my mind but both good.

I like the border on this but definitely think the glow maybe a tad too much.

Im not a fan of the font used, maybe trial a few others? Looks like a cool blog tho mate.

Last version before bedtime

Let me know your thoughts one again.

Kromy sorry I think i'm set on the font haha. I like it so I think i'll stick with that for now anyway.

Got rid of the glow on the grass, and reverted to the blurred image in this version. Definitely think this is the best so far.

Yup, I reckon that's the best version - still undecided whether I prefer with or without the glow around the players but not a major anyway. Definitely looking awesome.
