well first make it easier to read.
and maybe add something in the background like a shape or som lines that will draw a persons eye.

umm ok that is kinda a step in the wrong direction because unlike before this is completly unreadable.

what did you make this in Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, OC3, paint,etc...
here is a kinda tutorial
create your text on a new layer
the on a new layer below your text layer add your back ground experiment with the filters and effects in your image manipulating software of you choice thats unless your using paint. i don't know what else to tell you except maybe try some tutorials then apply what you learn from them to your banner.

sorry mate

what kind of site is this going to be?
what colors do you like and how big do you want the banner?
what does nilayshah mean?

Perhaps if you gave us a little more info as to the nature of your site, nas6034, we could better supply you with something you will find appealing.

since we dont know anything about this site, it is kinda hard. change your colors and add a little something. not just text. since it is a header, it has to flow into the rest of your site.

its like a site about me, and the pictures and other stuff, basically a personal type of site, I really like blue if you noticed above hehe, but for some reason I wasn't feeling the yellow, I'm going to possibly use a dark black/grey background on the site don't know if that is much help. nilayshah.com is my name nilay shah. Anything else needed? =) thanks for your inputs, helps so far.

the foreground (text) and the background need to contrast so u can read it.like a liht color on adark back or vice versa. dark blue on grey is nto god and thats why its hard to read but yellow is bright so its easy to read
