Couple of Additional Banners

Okay, I see Photoshop CS2 is really addictive!

After receiving great advices from o_yannik, I played with several pictures to see what I can do, and I ended up making 2 more BSG banners.  I'm still a long way to go from being good at this, but I had a lot of fun playing with the pictures and CS2.

In this first one, I wanted a banner with Lee in his flightsuit.  So I made this one "Apollo God in the Sky."  With this banner, I've also experimented with using the Gradient Tool on the background:



Next, since I've always wanted a father-and-son banner, I made this one "Commanders of Battlestars - Father & Son."  With this banner, I experimented cropping the Galactica from the original promo picture slanted so that it can fit within the banner:



(Hmmm...  I think I'm going to use the father-and-son one at The Adama Realm)

Edited to Add:

It's now Thursday, and I'm on my lunch break right now.  I just finished with another Lee banner I started late last night.  I wanted one with Lee in his double tanks.  With this one, I played with the idea of simple background and not stacking the pictures together.  Compare to the other banners I made, this one is very simple to make and I spent very little time on this:

... I can crop it from its original picture at an angle.

What do you mean?

Okay, first let me show you the original picture where I cropped the Galactica from:



Notice how the Galactica is at a 30 degree angle? Well, when I crop, I first centered the cropping box (say, 165X400 px) in the middle of the Galactica. Then I move the cursor toward the corner of the cropping box. If you get the cursor at the right place, it will change from an arrow cursor to a rotation cursor. Just grab the corner with the rotation cursor and you can rotate the cropping box to the desired angle. Viola!

And here's my cropped Galactica:
