Not too bad for under a month. Alot of your sigs are very similar though (I'm lazy, and lately all my sigs are the exact same technique and they take like 5minutes so can't really talk) so try experimenting with other tools and branch out a little.

Try and blend images together a little better also. Using layer masks, smudging and balancing colours and contrast (amongst others ofc)

Also lens flare, whilst fun at first, don't keep using it as it's not all that great. Try using other methods to create lighting.

Probably your best one yet. The quality of stock images is much better. And very nice desaturation use, it looks great.

Try www.dafont.com for more fonts also if you get bored of normal ones. Although Palatino Linotype should be enough for anyone imo

Try giving the sigs some depth by using the sharpen and blur tools. Not too much, just subtley.

Also maybe add some lighting using standard soft brushes (white light set layer to overlay, coloured set it to linear dodge 50% ish and gausian blur it until it looks good)

Coming along nicely though man You're improving.
