When getting close to a final design, I like to apply the "squish test". Size a shot down to ~100px wide and see what happens.
Getting close on this minor realign.

That's a great technique. I usually just get up and stand back about 6+ feet from my monitor. I'll be trying this next time.
Great way to see which area's get more "visual attention".
Which makes me think... OS X should have a short cut that zooms the screen OUT beyond 100%... we can zoom in with Control+scroll, but it would be nice if we could Shift+Control+scroll to zoom way out.
I digress. Retaining the Cederholm 5-column Grid® it seems. Looking forward to it!
Hah, this is a great technique. Reminds me of the Kids in the Hall routine, "I squish his head."
Dan, what happens if it passes the 100% test but doesn't pass the squish test? Great idea.
The Squish Test. Going into ye olde toolbox!
I used to do zoom to 25% in photoshop and squint. This will save me a few forehead wrinkles.

I thought I was the only one that did this. It's nice to know I'm not crazy. :)
Another good thing to do is turning your design upside down. That way you are not "reading the content" so you can easier spot the balance problems in the design.
