Just an idea. Take the 1st one. go over the edges of your render with about a 35% eraser to blend it into the BG, then throw in new adjustment layer>>color balance drop them midtone yellow all the way then tweak the yellow on shadows and highlight till it's got a nice little glow to it. Then add adjustment layer>>hue/saturation and drop the saturation till you like what you see, then repost it. It should blend in a lot more.
under chuck norrises bed. yea, even hes scared of me
i wonder where you got that idea?? *nudge nudge*
anyway, #2 deifnately IMO. but yes, the render like that on its own is too heavy. also, dont overdo the text. the glow is random and font is too fancy. simplify and fade...... and erase the edges in to blend the redner and maybe set it to luminosity for startes
