Interesting image. The crop is too tight for me as I had a hard time at first to tell he was holding the other head.

Extra points for making me laugh.

Humour, great.......I like the ideaof this, and feel that it works to a point. Some extra attention to detail could have made this even stronger. A border around the photo (small black and then the blue grey) and having the writing in the blue/grey of the photo. A different font also would have helped. these minor changes would have made a much more professional look to the submission.

lol, that quote is fantastic. I also like the blue tone to the photograph as well.

I don't understand your message.

Funny. Maybe better in the de-motivational group.

the font and color aren't much appealing to the photo

You have a spelling mistake in your poster, it should be "losing" not "loosing".
