A moving photo, the eyes say so much.

Beautiful journalistic photo.

Such a sad, empty expression captured so well - we take our lucky lives so much for granted, don't we? For me, the second boy is unnecessary and ruins an otherwise intense and evocative portrait.

Good shot. Don't think the title helps it though. The photo stands up really well on its own, and the title makes nasty people such as myself want to dislike it, as I unfairly believe that you're tinkering with my emotions. Smile

Good shot of the professional beggar's expression . . . whether they are the deserving poor or not, how can we judge?

Thankyou everyone for your comments, these particular boys seem nourished but were asking for money for bread. This photo was taken in Mozambique where it is obviously poor... when you cross the border from south africa you start to notice the lack of wildlife to photograph. I was told that it had all been eaten after the civil war when the people were desperate for food. Tourism however is bringing back money into the country and things are starting to look brighter... and stewart this photo makes me uncomfortable also..but the title was just as it is was Wink
