    Hey K, it's very nice, maybe the text is too blended with the background. I'd like to see more contrast in general, but Jufo knows that's my problem :)
    Anyway good work for a "newbie" ;)

    That's perfect :) Now "to the max" text should go like the title and one final touch would be removing the inner emboss effect in the big "K" and adding your beloved electrical rays ;)
    Just my opinion. :)

    I agree, the inner emboss is not necessary, but it is a style choice really..

    Adding the lightning is a toughie, mainly because it can easily look out of place; I am experimenting as we speak; thanks for your suggestions guys :)

    For instance:

    Looks pretty good to me, i'd just move the lighting layer up, to melt it with the end of the big "K" and perhaps try a soft blue outter glow in the letter...

    That's more subtle. Which do you prefer?
