It's the light that makes this so terrific, IMO - well done.

Giving this my third highest vote.
It's not technically superior to many (most) of the other entries, but there's a realness to this image the others lack.

This is a nice area for a portrait opportunity. I think you missed a great spot to place your subjects which was just behind them in the shaded area. Here, you got them in full sun which made the man squint and gave him those dark shadowy eyes. Ideally the diffuse light of the shade would have produced better results.

great metaphor (whether intended or not) in addition to the compassion in this picture.

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

Lovely sentiment. I would suggest trying to get a hair below eye-level with your shortest subject. While I get the sentiment, I'm not really connecting with the subjects.
