I'd really like to say something nice here but since MacThemes decided they'd frontline this on their website, I think it's only fair to offer some criticism. First off, it's not even all that original. As many have mentioned, even MacThemes, there are hundreds of these out there. Even if it was completely designed in Photoshop and took a lot of time and effort, the work doesn't reflect it. The same effect can be produced by using photo's from [link], blending them together and slapping a color overlay on it. Piece of cake. With training any first semester graphics design student to do this in under an hour. It's nice you have offered a version with out stripes because it looks better. It seems like everyone is obsessed with throwing stripes on anything they can. While stripes are classic and look great, it's really important to know when and where to use them. Why did you throw them on this piece? It's work's like these that get hailed by online communities such as DA and MacThemes which prove it doesn't take much to impress anyone these days. Congratulations, I'm sure it will be off of half of these people's desktop by tomorrow when they find some more recycled boredom to slap on it.
Sorry for being so open. After re-reading, I think I was a little harsh. I apologize. However, I think you are talented enough to do something a little more "out there" (noticed you Fear and Loathing quote). May next time you can be so bold as to go somewhere no one has ever been before.
