I like this one the best from your street series. The color and the grunge kinda have a ying yang effect for me. The color representing the boy's expression which seems upbeat while the grunge depicts the life on the street. The lighting is also great here. Simply well done.

Greetings from the CC.
I love this shot! The expression on this boys face to me is so 'boy' it says I am darn cute, I am mischevious, I am happy, it is so filled with pure emotion. I really think this is the kind of shot that you would see in life or time magazine depicting human emotion. It also ( I have only travelled to africa) to me says something that I see everytime I go to kenya or zambia that despite adversity and suffering and loss and poverty that africans have an ability to smile and find joy and acceptance in things that most north americans would crumble under. ( just an outsiders interpretation) I also think that you did a good job with the exposure as it is hard to photograph black people in that bright african sun.
I like the pose and composition as well. Nicely done, I wish you had done better.

Nice job with the composition and processing on this pic. I feel like he is squeezed into the frame but that is my opinion only. I think its because the framing is tall and narrow. Very effective use of colors and his posture is great!

Love the expression in this casual portrait! The contrast really makes the texture of the scene come alive!

Great ... haunting almost. I like that his skin is the only warm tone in the shot - with the others being blue and gray. Nicely done. Maybe a tad tight on the crop.

Good subject and composition, but is it a little out of focus?

good capture, i'm just not too keen on the close crop.
i would have liked to have seen more of what he was looking toward and more of the great texture of that wall.

Maybe just a little too much smoothing, what a great idea.
