The black background gives the spheres better context than the transparent one. :) It looks like a planet in #2. #1 could be an atom with a very slow electron. :D

I'd go with #2 because it makes puts everything into a defined space rather than floating on and blending into the rest of the page... plus it has stars :)

...but the text is a little harder to read.


That was one of my biggest concerns.  Not sure how to fix that, but I will play with it and see what I can do.

I didn't like the way the image looked like it was just thrown into the page when it had the black background, so I was tending toward the first one, but it seems unanimous that others prefer the second option, so I will work with the second one, and try adding a frame around it so hopefully it won't look so much like it was just thrown onto the page.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!   :thumb:

I did want to impart my own opinion about the issue (in case it might be helpful in any way).

I think the image with the white background that you had there previously below the images you asked about was actually much easier to see.  You could make the planet another color and the stars & text black, then use white to see how that would look.  If you compare the one with the white background (I know it is an entirely different image and no longer there now :)), it was much much easier to read the text and see it.

Thanks!  Unfortunately I was a little pressed for time.  The darn thing was due this evening, so I was working in a frenzy trying to get it finished.  I was slapping things together as fast as I could... which wasn't easy with the Flash since I had never used it before.  The written material is pretty weak, but at least it came together in something that "looks" like a complete project, and for never having used Flash before, I'm pretty happy with the animations.  I like your ideas though, and if I had more time, I would have played around with them.  Perhaps in a future update.

Thanks for the feedback...
