THIS IMAGE IS OF A ONE LEGED HOMELESS MAN WHO LIVES ON THE STREET AND BEGS FOR MONEY TO FEED HIS DRINKING HABIT. ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS IS SHELTER FROM THE RAIN AND FOR SOMEONE TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ALL JUST ONE STEP AWAY FROM WHERE HE IS TODAY.I WOULD GIVE UP EVERY CHRISTMAS FROM THIS DAY FORWARD TO NOT HAVE TO SEE ALL THE HOMELESS PEOPLE THAT I HAVE TO SEE ON THE STREETS ON A DAILY BASES.

This is a great shot because it makes a political statement and deserved to do better.

not a bad shot, just don't like it as much as some of the others...good focus, nice crop...

Great street shot, very raw emotion.

Nice subject and desat. But the background is way too distracting, especially that beam through his head.

Nice shot, the choice of colour and subject brings a nice mood and feel.
Ordinarily I'd find the background distracting as it's neither in focus or totally out of focus, but in this case I think the main subject holds the attention.

Great sentiment!
