By the road is a nice interpertation of the Road challenge. I think voters have a pretty good idea of what they are looking for when they are voting and rarely to do you see a picture do extremely well when it doesn't fit a certain idea. I think you had great out of the box idea for the challenge. The picture itself is nicely taken the positioning and cropping are just right. I like the you included the shadow down fast his feet. Also black and white is a prefect choice for this piece to bring out the subject. Did you stage this shot? Personally I am curious because for some reason to me it feels staged, it didn't take away from the way I voted but I was curious. Great use of the light you had. The shadows are one of the best pieces in this shot. I am glad you chose to enter this into the challenge it really does fit and show a part of society that we often choose to look away from. Good work

Captivating depeiction of poverty. Tones add to drama. Good job.
