I had been going to enter this one ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67258/120/792197.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/67258/120/792197.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' into the De-motivation challenge, but wasn't too sure about the sensibilities of some of the voters.

I edited this one, without use of my glasses, around midnight prior to rollover, and the editing is horrible - I am not an evening person!

A very clean image, well supported by a great blue sky. composition of this is very good, adn the overall presenttaion of the poster looks professional and is well executed. A great clean image that matched the title and phrase chosen very well

this is an awesome image, excellent work. one thing to look out for, there are very noticeable halos around their heads, probably from a little too much sharpening. it's something i do myself all the time. in advanced, you could probably clone it out and be fine, but for basic editing, i'm not sure of a way to remove them. you might be able to get away with a little less sharpening next time. still, an 8 from me :)

A gorgeous photo! If I have to nitpick, it's that your text looks a bit jagged.

I agree with the text, but they all look a like to me :) doesn't convey Individuality in here :)

In my belief there are more things that contribute for a great motivational/de-motivational poster:
Idea/creativity:10 I much support this message :D
Quality of the photo:10
Artistic viewpoint:8
Frame/borders: 5 the upper border is way too thin
Appealence of the font: 4 It has bad quality and it's very close to the photo and you have so much unused space down there
Average: 7.4 (7)
