This is beautiful. I love the crack along the ground dividing her and the other people.

Congratulations on your Ribbon!! Wonderful work!

I like how you cropped it because it makes her look so small against the tall buildings, and of course the people in the backround looking to buy things instead of helping the women out.

perfect! sepia tone works for the poverty, and the offset child represents how she is overcome by the world, and how her poverty forces her to be that way.

Nice sepia, sets the tone and atmosphere, poverty in the midst of abundance. One of my top 3. 10
11/02/2004 10:19:41 AM
I like the contrast in the jewelry stores to the beggar.

Very nice. The sepia tone, the contrast between rich and poor, right down to the facial expression. My top pick this round.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nicely done. Captures how people will ignore people to pursue money/jewelry etc. good choice to use the sepia too.

10/31/2004 02:03:01 PM
I like this one, poverty is clear and loud, great tones also!

Great shot! I love the simplicity and choice of sepia.

Powerful shot. Good contrasts between "rich" and "poor" elements.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is one of my top picks in the challenge; a classic juxtaposition of poverty and wealth.

Touching and sad.

The contrasting values in the photo are beautiful. 8

I really like this one. The sepia tone gives it a great feel. And, ignoring the modern car in the background, it feels very timeless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2004 10:30:29 AM
works really well in sepia - good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2004 07:34:31 AM
Cropping out the top and left, keeping only the people in the distance down to the girl in the corner, is another possible composition. As it is now, the subject takes up very little of the frame in my opinion. Good photo.

Its rather sad isnt it so much and not enough
