Shanty town built on the water front of the city of Belem. Photo taken from a boat. I thought the shanty town provided a striking contrast to the skyscrapers in the background, highlighting one of the most complex issues that exists. I rotated the image .5 degrees to level the horizon, cropped, changed to B&W, slightly burned the water, sharpened, and adjusted contrast and brightness.

I would have scored this higher if there were more contrast and less grain but the idea is well thought of.

Now this shot speaks complexity to me, great subject with much emption. I think technically it could be better and would have scored higher from me had it been a little sharper and maybe cropped closer to the shanty town. Good job overall.

when trying to accentuate poverty in a photo, its good to use grain to show some sort of sad-depressing mood. howerver i think in this particular photo, it would come out nicer if it were sharp as opposed to noisy. just because a lot of detail is involved. nice capture... and the b&w looks great. is this indonesia?
