New Banner

Okay, I've been wanting to make a new banner with this photo for awhile. But I am going to be honest here. I am thoroughly mediocre at PhotoShop (I use GIMP actually) and I have no clue how to make a real banner. So I made this.

2010 banner

I like it, but I don't love it. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to make a new banner? I don't really need help on how it should look, more like how to actually make it look more polished. I would love some help from all you artistic people out there. Thanks!

I like your banner. No suggestions. I'm not a graphic design person.

i do like the banner - color, fonts & your photo are great! - if you want me to play with it a bit to enhance you can email me the files. i have one tiny idea that popped in my head immediately! i'm a web designer so i do this stuff for clients all the time. send me the photo separate from the banner itself.

gina - thanks!

Christina - thanks!

Cassandra - awww. You're making me blush. I'm really glad that you like the blog.

Shelley - thanks!

MissAmy - A web designer - You are too cool for school. I need to contact you! I don't think I have individual pics of the banner, b/c i made it and then covered it with the photo and saved it.
