The quote is from Lao Tzu, founder Daoism.

Was out in a park in Austin, found some peacocks that are around, shot a few, and here is just one photo that I thought might fit the saying quite well.

Photo cropped and adjusted in photoshop. Enhanced saturation and contrast. The border is created with Fred Miranda's Frame action.

Great photo. It might be more impressive going up the stairs, that gives a natural psychological meaning of going up and making it, not going down.

Excellent photograph; great use of color highlighting. Good quote to go with it. I don't especially care for the choice of border, although I DO like the small cream border and 3-d look to the photo inside it.

love the colours, and the message. But I think the shot is dwarfed by the border. I understand its a poster challenge, but you want the beautiful bird to be the centre of attention, not the heavy dark border. Perhaps something lighter would have complimented the subject better. Other than that, I like the focus and the composition quite a bit. Its tight with the attention in all the right places.

I think the text should of been centered. The shot: Good focus, color and capture.

Great timing and composition. The text could be a little clearer though.

I love it - an unexpected image to go with a common quote. Great job!

Beautiful photo, but really ugly border (sorry). The colours are great, so is the sharpness. This is in one in the million kind of shot, where you catch the bird in the perfect moment of stepping down. The text is kind of lost in the image. It could have been better on the bottom of the black frame reversed. The photo itself is very good, but the framing really spoiled it.
