Since you're obviously getting much better (especially only during a weeks time), I'm only going to crit/comment the first two-since they're the newest.
1. I like the idea and concept, I really do. I've been trying to think about something to do with the pic you used as the background for a good year or so, and you've really gotten a good one. Now, as for crit: I would just work more on trying to make it look like the horse was originally part of the image (not sure if this is what you plan on going for, but this is what I usually go for). To do that, you'd have to make the horse a little darker (IMO) and kind of shade it a bit. You'll have to add some shadows and highlights on the horse, since it seems a bit too bright for the picture, but it definitely takes the focus-which I would try to keep.
2. I really like how you have all the quotes in different fonts, and the background looks nice with it. The only think I might experiment with is changing the opacity of some of the..lesser quotes, you know? Not really sure how to explain it, but one quote that could sum up all the others, as rather bold and standing out, with all the others basically "revolving" around it. I would also try messing around with how they're set up by the automatic font thing, such as trying to move them in more of a cascading type of design, or try something with a bend in it.
