I think this would have been stronger if you used a vertical crop in lieu of the horizontal. On my monitor the background is just a tad to dark. The font seems to have an oriental feel?. Nice work still a very nice vote.

This one made me smile. You've captured the perfect moment and expression on the bird's face. Only suggestion - different/plainer font - I thought it detracted from the overall statement.

Love the photo, composition, etc. I don't care for the font selection, though I do like the message.

a little on the dark side and too bad the tail feathers aren't all there

Good bird shot. The bright subject stands out nicely against the dark background. Good focus and DOF. Needs a little more space at the top. The poster layout is OK, but the font choice is poor; the breaks in the letters are too wide for white-on-black use. The connection between the photo and the text is tenuous; birds aren't generally known for their extreme patience.

Phrase may need some work for the picture; motivation is based on inducement or intiative, what here comes of patience?

Beautiful - the light and the subject to the right make an excellent composition, good luck. The only think I don't like is the Font you used.

Patience for what? There's no definitive indication that the seagull is actually waiting for anything at all, so for me this concept isn't strong enough. Nice image though.

Wonderful focus and light. Maybe the crop could of been a bit tighter? Congrats on a nice, clear, clean shot.

cute pic, altho i don't tend to associate patience with seagulls ..

I think you should have made the vertical lines even, rather than the horizontal, as this seems too far tilted to the right to me. Also, a white keyline seperating the photo from the border would have helped the shot. 6

Great sharp picture of the bird!

Photo is superb. Colours look very natural. But the font is kind of wild and unseen in pro posters. But if that's your style, then go for it. Well done photo.

So true ... YOUR patience was rewarded with this beautiful photograph :-). Beautiful composition, great colors, and excellent lighting (focused on the bird) ...
