    I'm almost sure the reflection is the only thing that should have a gradient, unless you did that on purpose.

    Also, a more efficient way of creating the "gradient" on the reflected text would be to select the bottom half, feather it by about 20px and then cut. That way it fades into any colour, not just white. lololo

    I guess the text being part of the white gradient signifies the ground being reflected off of the letters maybe. Also, good tutorial for beginners. Good work.

    I normally just add a layer mask and do a black to white gradient on that. It solves all the problems + it is easily editable/removable.

    The gradient is on more then the reflection layer.
