As I wrote for Tony's picture, your family proves that it is possible, when you are motivated enough!

I am scratching my head myself. I have no idea how did we managed to pull this off :-)) I am just very happy for Nick. It's a big encouragement for him to keep going. It gets him of the couch into the outdoors.

Thanks all you guys. Great support.

Absolutely love every single thing about this except the choice of font for "Celebrate Life". Wonderful shot and great choice of using the triptych.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2004 02:55:48 PM
this really pops out at you. i like the split up effect.
the BG color is good.

nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2004 02:00:56 PM
Nice work. I'm not crazy about the wide border or the color but that is minor. Your message is to Celebrate Life but to me the colors make it comes across as gloomy? The blue border the blur in the image. Still nice vote
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2004 04:48:14 PM
WOW. The tryptic is creative, quote is moving and ties in well with the photo - nice job! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2004 12:07:28 AM
I really like this and think its great work
The boarder over powers it a little but sort of adds to it
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful overall, and interesting (and surprising) when you look closely. The fake triptych format works very well.

First, let me say that I love everything about this entry except for not crediting Eleonora Duse with the original quote. It originally said "If a blade of grass has the power...".

Very creative. Well done.

Truly beautiful. Great choice of a motivational phrase. Congratulations...great idea! 8

Great image and outstanding photoshop composition. the split in three, the shadow behind image and text, the clarity of the image itself, it all adds to an outstanding poster.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/30/2003 06:55:00 PM
Another beautiful motivational message and the image works very well indeed. I am not convinced by the decision to split the image into three panels not the drop shadow effect around each panel. Border colour and font choices work well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/30/2003 02:42:24 PM
Great composition, beautiful colors and a nice sentiment.

Nice take on the challenge. The three windows work well with this shot. Good job.

12/30/2003 04:09:18 AM
i like the way you cut the picture in three - nice design ! (the text message could be better :))
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/30/2003 01:15:10 AM
This is a wonderful shot, the drop is so clear and your depth of field is perfect for this shot, I like the font and spacing in this shot,the message is wonderful, 10

Man! What a poster! Great quote/saying, love the break down of the shot! Everything is top notch! 10!

very creative design here, excellent message. fantastic macro. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 03:41:17 PM
Definitely one of the best in the challenge IMO. Love the separation of the 3 photos you have used. I really like the blue border and feel it adds something to the poster that plain black wouldn't have. Great quote as well. Good luck with the challenge!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 02:03:20 PM
Beautifully done. Compliments only. Love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 01:52:08 PM
Overall it's well presented, but the image should be powerful enough to stand on it's own, and I don't think that this one is. You're verging on too much text as well - the message should be more succinct.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 01:05:13 PM
I'm guessing that this might be the one in the forum that you were worried about. I won't vote it down, because its obvious you used just one picture. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I apologize ;). I like the idea, and the foucus is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 07:11:33 AM
Gorgeous! The typography is excellent as is the image! "10"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 04:57:20 AM
Wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 01:04:54 AM
Ironically, dividing the picture into 3 parts emphasizes the simplicity of the subject. I think you picked an unusual background color, but I don't think I have a better suggestion either.
I like the main type, but I think I'd have used a slightly more calligraphic (but simple) font for the quotation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2003 12:45:24 AM
Absolutely stunning. I love the split into three frames here.
