Mikles has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Pretty good for just starting, you need to incorporate more effects and my advice is when just starting off stick with one render. Also your text is nice but it doesn’t really fit the rest of the sig. Take your time to learn the basics use tutorials for they help.

I like the first one a lot better.

Steph I just found some really good tutorials, not all of them can be incorparated into mma sigs but the techniques probably could. My favorite one is the 14th one down. It's easy to do and looks great. Let me know if you need help finding a good stock photo to use for the background and the smudging. I found one with lot of detail that really works good.

I like the font and the background a lot on that one. Try to sharpen up Gina a little bit tho she looks kind of blurry. Duplicate the layer with Gina on it and set the duplicated layer to overlay with an opacity of 30. It should make her stand out a little bit more and then just sharpen the 2 layers of Gina.

Also I think that Gina one would look really good with a filter on it.

If you want the two Fitch's on the side to match the Fitch in the middle, select each pic and press CTRL-L and play with the nobs. It's called levels.

Yes, yes it is, you can even play with the white (3rd nob) a little more. But good progress.
