ok u want crit so i give u crit hehe
first off: why did u put the pic of the hotel in a circle? especially one with a black border! IN THE 1 ZONE!!!
the bush looks bad from having the sky manipulated and the sky itself really is too fake and it looks cheesy...
the fact that u repeat the title of the place under it bewilders me.
so enough about the circle that makes my eyes bleed...
the font is too bold (plainly doesnt match the font of the site) , scanlines r okay.
i would personally like to slap whoever put "the place to [bee picture which flies around and is annoying]"
why didnt u put the logo of the place (upper right of site) in ur pic?? ur pic is plain cuz it doesnt have a backgrund...all your attention is put on that circle pic of the church with the vivid and fake sky and u forget to look at anything else...dont put all our attention on one subject....use flowing lines to direct our eyes around the page....take a few art classes...
in the end, it will do- i dont know why u made it but thats none of my buisness. sorry if i was overcritical but if i had said "its good", would u have wanted to make it better?

hmm...tempest has some good crits as harsh as they are:D
I don't care for the design myself...It is hard to crit since I don't know if this is a business card, post card, flyer...if it is a computer background then it is way too bold. but I will comment on what you already have...
I don't mind the circle...but I do mind the cropping within the circle and the repeating of the Hotel name.
The font is okay for the name up top, but it isn't a good choice for the rest of the info...try a cleaner crisp font I think you'll be surprise at how much a font change can make a difference.

Thanks for your crits he he
1 I placed the picture of burridges inside the black circle because the website and the main company logo is an outline of burridges inside a black circle.
2 The website of Burridges is an old one and its to be updated soon so this is something like what the new directors want.
3 It was meant to be basic and wasnt intended to be realistic as it is only a computer background, you know a picture you have on your desktop.
4 The logo that you say bleeds your eyes, is and attempt of the logo on the website which is on the upper right corner. i just tried to make it more interesting than black lines.
So how do you think i should make it less bold and more interesting? if you could post some similar work that would be great.
i havent shown it to the directors yet, but if they like it then good, but if they want changes i will change it. i might try and add some of them flowing lines into the background. i will be back for an update.
thanks so far
Please keep them coming but not as hard.
Sorry to say i could of slapped YOU Tempest811 when you said "Take some art lessons" and i could of said "Take some English lessons" and learn how to spell BUISNESS. I know its cheesy and Ill stop bitchin now and im over that now so its ok.
Even? he he

*sigh* the typical egotistical and defensive response....
first you dont take any advice, then you make an immature attempt at getting some kind of revenge, then you give a reason for why everythign is the way it is... dont ask for me to spend time commenting on something of yours if you obviously have ur mind made up that it cant get any better - and i can see numerous ways it can. but what does my opinion matter? i didnt stroke the pic and "ooh" at it so my crit is obviously not applicable [sarcasm].
i also dont understand who would want to have a picture of a hotel with information as their desktop...or why a hotel would want you to make a desktop bg for them.

have i caught you in a bad mood coz i was just messin with that last post.
Never said i didnt want your opinion. i actualy am going to try and add some lines to the background to make it interesting. but if you wana go on a stress, thats up to you. if i thought it was finished and didnt need to be changed i wouldnt of posted it. im only an amateur at Photoshop and just want to learn.

Ok, I don't see the problem here guys. Seems like things could get a little hand, if you carry on. Please just let things drop for now. It doesn't really matter. Cool?
Danny, I used to be a bit of a designer too, post up your updates and I'll be happy to do some crits when I get time. :)
Tempest, did you ever get around to making that Samurai Beaver? LOL.

heh- i cant believe u remember
i may go further with him but i dunno.

Its just a disagreement and im not realy bothered anymore about it. If you wana go further, by all means do so but i aint gona take you on. But if your ok with what MonteCristo-3DT says than id like to say ive been to your website and im impressed.
Have you or anyone else got any links to how you can make stuff like that (Just the Photoshop not the HTML/Java) coz i think it might come in handy if future.
The directors have seen the bg and they linked it. I guess there not bothered if your eyes dont focus on anything else. They just wanted a computer background that tells you the addresses to the staff and doesn’t look messy when the customers look at the computer from behind the desk.
I have no updates yet but i would like to keep this post open for links that i requested. Thanks MonteCristo-3DT
Any more crits from anyone else?

Well, let's face it, it's not the most interesting of subject matters to base a piece on. Now that you have told me what it's for I can only say, it's absolutely fine. I think you've done all you need to do for it. It's clear and looks like a hotel screensaver. It does the job well, and who could ask more than that? So leave it at that I guess.
Move on to the next challenge ;)
