This is such a nice image the colors are strong and bold as well as very strong at grabbing attention. My only dislike for the entire image is those white letters distract from the beauty of the sunset. I'm not sure what color I would have use, if I would have used also the same pink as your boarder or not, but that white seem to pull attention from the beauty of the sunset.

this looks like a nearly great picture that was color manipulated too much, it doesn't look at all natural to me

Very powerful photo. The pink boarders detract from the two key elements (photo and quote).

Color is unrealistic For motivation it must be realistic, yet beyond our reach.

so very true. good choice of borders, i like the double border effect and the slogan is appropriate.

amazing! truly, truly amazing. The only reason I dont' give you a 10 is because the grammar is wrong. There should be a period after the word 'day' and a period at the end of the sentence. This is the top photo this challenge. GREAT job! Nice reflections, beautiful color, great borders, great scene.

Nice choice of image though the colours seem pumped up too much. Message works well. I think the thick pink internal borders around text and image are a mistake and it would work best without either.

You've certainly made the most of the opportunities in this scene. Great picture.

lovely photo - i love the color that you've captured. but a couple small things distract me: 1. don't care much for the border color 2. you missed punctuation between "day" and "The", which you've probably noticed by now.

I love this picture and the saying.Graphically, I would have made the boxes the same width, and perhaps the bottom one with a little thinner line. But I do like the use of picking the color from the poster, but I wonder how the purplish blue would have looked, mabe a little subtler

I don't like the pink lines. But a beautiful shot none the less. 10

I think the colors are way overly saturated (they're clipping), otherwise a nice shot.

Nice image but the sky is just too pink. I would have scored this higher had the sky\'s color not been played with as much. An more orange cast would have suited this image better than pink. You might have also edited out those two little clouds sitting above the gazebo.

The photo is good, but the concept doesn't work very well for me. I also hate to be a stickler, but there should be a period/full-stop after 'day'. The pink framing is a bit unsettling as well, and hurts this image.

Really amazing, vivid colors. Love the photo and reflection. Nice job.

The thick pink inner border overwhelms this poster. Should have made it 1 pixel wide, or very similar to the outer pink border. The photo is just beautiful.

The colors are really overdone. Too much for my taste. But a good choice of image and text nevertheless.

Gorgeous work. Good luck,.

Wait a second... don't I have this on my new calendar?!!? Just kidding, very nice, reflective shot.

shouldnt have bordered your text separately unless you were going to make it the same width as the image.

Interesting. The colors are a little intense - looks over-saturated to me. Would like to see the original.

I like the photo a lot, but I think the design in the border is a bit too heavy. 8

The photo is absolutely gorgeous. The colours are spectacular and the clarity is very good for en evening shot. But you went way over board with the borders. The thin one around the whole frame is fine, but the shocking pink thick border around the image and around the text could have been totally excluded and you would still have a very powerful poster. It kind of spoiled it for me.

I am awestruck at this photo! It is breathtaking, beautiful!

I like it, but think I would have preferred the colours slightly more natural, as the pink looks a little fake.
