A good shot with the people. I am not sure what the truck adds to the scene visually though without considering the title. In any case, overall, it's very strong and I predict a top 20 finish for this one.

Great expression captured in both of their faces. Composition is superb, with that truck supporting the recycling environment/theme of the photo. (10)

Very sad! The B&W photo really adds to this exceptional photo. The boys face says it all 'what can I do'! Keep up the superb work.

Nice photo, I like the child and his position, I wish she wasn't scratching her head! Nice tones.

For combining all the trite elements of poverty (dirty children, bleak walls, garbage) this image quite appeals to me. Great shot.

Ahhh, finally a very nice picture. I love the contrast and the 'appartness' (if there is such word in English) of the three subjects. Each of them would be enough, and having them all makes this pic great. Well done.

I love the composition here. Not to mention the great capture of the child's expression. Well done. 8.
