It's sad that this is how the majority of Zimbabwean's live and grow up. Many are housed in a home made of sticks and mud.

This photo is a look into the everyday life of two african children.

I like your composition and concept here, if it had just been a little sharper it would have scored better

Interesting photo, but a bit dark. Would love to know what the title means?

Picture is perfect/great!
You will get many points but not very original subject... 6 from me.
I think I know what the boy is thinking:
"I should steel that camera to get some dolars from it" :)

There are problems with the lighting in this image, but the subject fits the challenge perfectly. Also, the image is powerful and moving.

The only thing that could have given this more impact is if there were catchlights in his eyes. This is a very powerful shot, his expression is so emotional. Great job!

Wow, my favorite for this challenge! This picture is great!
I wish the kids' faces were a little bit more bright since there's a very bright light behind them and their expression is a little bit lost. But still it's a wonderful picture altoghether.

a bit of flash would have helped show the faces better

Would be nice shot but you got it too heavy contrast of shade.

Beautiful children. Maybe some fill flahs to take away the extreme shadows.
