Thanks Hotrod for the critique. I thought about putting more smoke behind the title, but was relucant covering up more of the picture (I already had to scalpel the image as it was). I also thought about just sticking with orange (the complimentary), but hesitated in bringing in too much orange to the blue palette. The current image is a compromise. But I will rethink it. For now I am putting any pre-session planning on hold. But we will come back to this.
Nice title image. My only suggestion would be to play a bit with the text on the image; it doesn’t contrast quite enough with the background, especially the blue-ish areas in “Dragon Kings”.
