Ah, badminton. Great sport. Haven't played in a while and I really miss it.

Nice shot, love the concept.

Yeah, it works nicely. Really like the black background for mood and effect. I wonder, however, if a somewhat more angry or tough expression would take this to another level.

I like the idea, but it could be better.

a) use a bird with real feathers
b) the olympic logo needs some more tweak. It's not going with the curvature of the cork
c) the guy needs a racquet.
d) absolute not liking the effect of the word "badminton". Hurts looking at it.

To add to (c), above, the guy also needs shorts, or something more sporty than jeans. It's a good shot, but he looks like a bloke who's found a shuttlecock in the street and is asking the viewer, "what's this, then?"

It's an outstanding poster IMHO

- "Very good" is the enemy of "great." Sometimes we confuse the two.

Badminton is a great sport, played tonight, love it love it love it.

Anyways, whats the poster for? Im trying to think of the point you are trying to put across other than badminton is more than a game, if its a poster you plan to display then it needs more definition. Or is it something you are playing with and thats it???

The lighting is great, love the focus on the fist and shuttle, again depending on the message Id have his face more out of focus I think.

A feather shuttlecock is a must.
