I scored this down because of the lack of text. On this viewing, though, I can see the photos message so clearly - and it doesn't need a text to inspire and motivate; it speaks for itself. Have you thought about re-editting the photo without the constraints of basic editting and correcting the perspective? I think it would be really strong then.

I like the colors, but I don't like the crop.

I find myself wanting to get out of that red room as fast as possible. I guess one could say that it is motivating the viewer to go out into the world and explore. I don't know how well this will do here but I gave this photo an 8.

I think it would be much stronger with precisely vertical and horizontal lines. Very nice concept.

Can i please suggest a re-edit for this.

Black background. Photo up top, red border around it. Title OPPORTUNITY (in Red) with that phrase below, would make a great motivational poster. Its just a shame you didn't take the image and turn it into the challenge submission that it really could have been. Had you done that, and got the presentation right, this could have been right up there with the top images int he challenge. The red is terriffic, the open door, the angle. Probably the only problem is the dark rectangle above the door. Still good marks, but this could have really been stunning with the correct presentation

Nice idea... just think it would worked better if the right line of the door were paralel to the edge of your photo

Not in the motivational poster style, but the image is really amazing, original enough and nicely graphic.

Many will say that your poster lacks text, but your poster speaks for itself and people can make up their own line. I like it.

Nicely captured,

this photo lacks of a border and motivation message on the photo (I'd prefer there to be one, consider it as you were writting a motivational letter and following certain rules)

great perspective.
