Voila! - 2

A header that I have been thinking of for sometime now. The fact that dark font on light backgrounds is easier to read had been haunting since my previous pitch black layout so here's one keeping in mind. I feel so relieved now. Although, it seems incomplete somehow and I know not why. Any ideas?

That's me in the picture, by the way. :)

  1. I am not sure about the easier to read, but it will definitely consume more energy :) Nice header !

  2. Just the right time to create a controversial change from black to white. :D On a more serious note, I really haven’t felt convinced either way.
    Thanks! :)

  3. hmm looks gud.gues i gotta learn some fotoshop from ya..ll b invading ya house next week.betr b thr...

  4. A change for better, surely. Neat :)

    And now, why does it look incomplete ?

    Probably because it is not properly anti-aliased (scaled from a smaller image, maybe).

    Or probably because it direly needs gradients.

    Or probably, we're just imagining it. It is just completely complete :)

    Thanks! Oh sure.
    Aside: Gotta finish off them chocolates!

    Maybe the template aint actaully working wonders for the header?
    scaled down, actually.
    Now why do I forget that every single time?

    Loved that last line. Thanks!

  6. That would make me to begin afresh my experimentation after a series of launch failures ;)
