Not much editing to the original image, per se. Removed a crumb on the remote (hehe) and some minor dodge/burn, and some cloning. I did have to use multiple layers to clean up my background because it didn't come out a solid black. All layers were applied in normal mode, basically because I'm not that talented in PS.

Hope it does good.

I like this work, nice idea. It appears to me that the white balance may be of a tad?

Creative composition - not sure what it's motivating/inspiring the viewer to do

Being a little picky, if that remote is going to be my motivation, I want something much more significant that that, give me a bigger remote, or one with exceptional buttons. Not too many or too elaborate, but no a simple, run of the mill.

Good composition and a great idea to go with the quote.

Very interesting shot. This proves you are a good photographer, a thinker, and the owner of a really cheap tv.

Unfortunately, many of them are probably right. The remote is off level by enough to be irritating, but not enough to be a dynamic visual element.

Interesting, I told my husband the other day wonder why door remotes aren't on the market yet, after leaving my car with the remote I have often caught myself puching the buttons on my car remote when wanting to enter the house. ha ha..this is very true , I like the concept and the message that people are getting spoiled to things and are against good hard work I like it 10

Very interesting idea. The photo is a bit on the soft side (probably intentionally). The text (the smaller one) is a bit blurry. And since you centred the title, why not centre the text as well.
