I think this works very well. The can is perhaps slightly over-exposed but it's perfectly sharp and I like the way you've positioned it off-centre in the frame. Putting it there makes it a photo of a space ruined by litter (exactly what you wanted) rather than a photo of the litter. I can imagine this making a good billboard ad in an anti-litter campaign.

I'd tone down the copyright message a bit as, being so bold and central, it looks like the subject of the photo; and the caption wants to be 'Be responsible', without the 'a'.

For the 'Be responsible' caption, create a new layer, initially all transparent. Draw a white box and add the text in black. Then decrease the opacity so the image shows through behind it. You can use the same trick with opacity on the copyright message, too.

Good luck with the MRI results!

Be a responsible what? A little over exposed and this needs darkening. Why have you put that huge copyright message on a shot in a critique gallery - completely ruins any effect. Sorry, I usually keep fairly quiet on this issue now, but this one is a bit much - not needed at all.
