This is an amazing shot. I didn't see it during voting but it would have gotten a 10 from me. Very nice work!

Powerful, well composed... the wood(?) in the lower right bothered me at first glance, but after a while it added a lot... Hope you were able to give then something for a model fee...

beautiful. one of the best, and I'm sure you will do very good with this stunning shot! It looks like you might have done some background blur, and it works well with this image.

My guess is that this is another Librodo. It is a phenomenol shot. The expression perfectly add to the mood of the surroundings. How do you do it? Added to favs. 10, just-married

This is hard to look at and yet it keeps drawing me. It screams its message and hurts my heart.

I think "Tweety Bird" on the little boys vest has the most emotional impact for me. It points out the reality that these are children... no different from my own grandchildren, but that life has handed them such a different road to travel.

Thanks for the awareness... 10, of course

really dramatic lighting. they seem to be made of ceramic.
what the hell, did I say 9? After coming through 10 seems to fit better.

This is a very very very good shot, if this would have been enetered in the Poverty challenge I guess it would have won a ribbon.
Everything in this photo works! Top pick! 10!

Very nice capture. Would have possibly worked well in the poverty challenge as well. It is very sad really. I don't like to see dirty children. Makes me think they are lonely. Focus and clarity are great, lighting is great, and I love the framing/cropping you chose. Nothing to complain about here. 10. ~Heather~

Even more enticing that you did not b/w this. Feels NatGeo to me.

I like the frame, composition, colors, and expression of these 2. Nice balance. Good job.

What a truly wonderfal capture of children and emotion. I love this picture. The framing works well. The colors, the sharpness, the posing (which I'd imagine was not posed at all) work well together. Good luck in the challenge!

After further review, I came back to bump this image up to a higher rating. To me, it is damn near worthy of National Geographic cover!!! This has got to be a Blue ribbon winner. 10. . . only the third I 've ever given. Will you please share the history and details of this shot?
