Just A note to the CH, There is a lot of Very good work here. If you could rate more then the top 3 we as designers would appreacate it as we recieve points even if we do not win the top spot. Moving up in rating my be the only pay we get for a while. But it is important to us,
Plus, Feedback we as designers thrive on it, The more feedback the better, (So far it has been great)
No alteration is too small to ask for, after all its your logo and its our job to give you exactly what you want.
Thank You for your consideration.

Thanks for the info.I ranked 1 because I like the light from the train. Also please do not use a picture of Lead Belly or his guitar. I have yet to see one with a moon that I like.
