A lovely, crisp shot with some very excellent selective desat.

An interesting image, yet a wonder why you cropped off the tail of both birds. There is no reason why this cannot have a landscape appearance to it, and i think it would have looked more finished that way.....
Not sure whether you used channel desat (legal) or selective desat (which would be against the rules) so i will presume you have complied with the Basic Editing Rules and vote as if this is legal.
The attention to the presentation of this is very good and makes the entire poster look very professional.........

The selective saturation works well with this photograph, plus I am partial to flamingos anyway. IMHO the composition would be a bit stronger if the tail feathers were not cut off. 8

Nice shot. How did you get the selective coloring with basic editing?

Wonderful! The necks really look like making the 'Heart' Symbol.

Great use of selective desat, fantastic how the birds heads and necks make a heart too. Good luck.

In my belief there are several things that contribute for a great motivational/de-motivational poster:
Quality of the photo:10
Artistic viewpoint:10
Appealence of the font:8 (the sentence should be a little bit bigger, beacause of the type of the font it can be barely read)
Average: 9.6 (10)
