Thank you all for your encouraging messages, specialy for those to whom tho photo spokes.
I deliberately refuse send a picture of a single person showing is misery and prefered send one where external signs could show the poverty some people live with.
Post-editing was only crop, adjust brightness and contrast, add an unsharp mask, all whith PSP CS.

I really like this - great illustration of theme and very clear, nice tones of grey with bits of color. some may complain of the angle, but I think it adds a little something.

Can almost hear the sounds of children crying, people arguing, and tv's talking... Smell something frying and something decaying. I might have cropped out the partial balcony-thing at the top and maybe included a person passing on the street below.

Really nice use of line and contrast of color and texture.

The tilt just doesn't do it for me, but everything else is good.

Hmmm. Captures the theme well - atmospheric

I think it would be better without the tilt. Otherwise good colours, crisp image. It is depicting poverty. Good luck!

the aura of neglect is very evident hereand you have captured it well.I guess that neglect and poverty live hand in hand as a socio economic situation I like the clothes hanging out the act as a good focal point.

Well formated, good shot of the image of urban poverty. I don't think there is anything I would change about this picture.. Maybe play around with less saturation, but I don't know if that would help or hinder.
