Okay, this may be when I really start heading off into the weeds. But I wanted to try different things.
I've been reliably informed that if you never fail, you aren't trying hard enough.
Playing with the logo... This time I used the logo as a mask, expanded it, and copied that part of the main picture. Then I put the logo down on it again.
Obviously the logo wouldn't be placed where it is now — that area will have the title. Overall, I don't think this attempt gets me much closer, but it was something to try.
