Thanks for the input, MNM.
Personally I would remove the transparency on your logo, its a little busy with the background bleeding through.
Do you mean the words "TheSpaceRace.com", or the transparency of the menubar? Or both?
The title doesn't actually have any transparency, but I did give it a gradient and pattern to give it a metallic appearance. I agree it does kind of camouflage it with the clouds and makes it difficult to read. I'll work on that... maybe by darkening the lighter part of the gradient so that it doesn't so closely match the clouds.
If you meant the transparency of the menubar, I like that and won't remove it completely, but I have reduced it by 10%.
