I don't like it. You use waaaay too much brush work in your sigs.

Like other's said try to work on lighting effects and blending more. An easy way to make your render stand out more is to blend it in a little and then duplicate it and set the duplicated render to overlay and turn down the opacity to around 30%.

It's alot better but slightly cluttered. There's too much going on.

Also the edges of the photos are a little rough. I'd try to smooth them out a little.

The reason it seems cluttered it other wise it would be to skinny, I used the polaroids to try and widen it but the back ground behind them is all stamped and smudged to try and get it to be wider, it looks clean now but if I removed the polaroids It would look repetitive.

My goodness, why does Coleman look like a burn victim?

Also, the simpler, the better. Less is more. You don't need to cram 100 things into a sig to convey your message, be subtle but be unique.

duplicated Coleman and ran a high pass filter over it then dropped the opacity to try and give it a gritty effect where he showed his age.
