I wonder if the top-logo (star fish + ocean/sun) might look better as a
real image (e.g. photo) if it wasn't too huge
to download and find a nice star fish image to layer on top of the left
side.. I poked around on images.google.com
and also on pbase.com for various things but I suspect it would be
better to create an image from scratch using a
camera (preferably with a wide-angle lens).. I was thinking of an image
that would show a tropic beach with the
sun in one corner and perhaps a palm tree nearby along with the starfish
at the far left -- obviously a wide image..
Anyway, I'm guessing this will be shot down, but thought I'd throw it
out there anyway.. :-)
