And thanks for the photoshop advice, here is a second attempt, I think Im getting there ?
Lookin' real nice! One little bit more advise. When doing the photoshop stuff, try going into wherever on a PC Bill Gates hides the controls for the mouse (I use a Mac) and slow the mouse down as far as it will go. That will make it about the same as half way on the Mac (and I slow mine down for this stuff too). It will allow a lot greater control of what you are doing. Experiment with different shades of gray and see how it looks to you. One thing I love about Photoshop is that you can always step backwards many times and redo something that didn't come well or revert to the original.
