Technically a very good shot...composition, softness of colors in contrast to the hardness of this lifestyle. Emotionally, I find it very very sad. Background is fabulous. You should re-visit this spot.
I just have to say, i accidently rated this photo a 7 but i wished i had voted 10 because this has moved me so much i have starred at it for ages wondering about her life and what you have captured, asking myself who is she, does she have any relatives, does she have a home or are all her things in those bags etc etc such an interesting photo, it really is.
yes i agree b/w would be a good option!i know how you feel charlie-but if you look through my eyes you will see someone who is fighting against all odds and seems to be doing a decent job-you've got the eye mac.!!
