So beautiful, Lev! So much story oozes from every wrinkle and sad glimmer in her eyes.

there's so much about this image that pulls at the heart strings . .
the sadness and struggle that i see in her face .
and the bottle .. its a shame that coca cola got released to the general public .. along with so much else .. that they say is safe .. like cigarettes .. and the list goes on ..
not a healthy choice is an understatement ..
i see this image as a very strong statement .. and so well done ..
powerful is an understatement ..

so i just gave you a 9 .. first image i've seen and went to vote on the next photo .. took 20 seconds to load .. i may not be able to vote on this challenge if my internet doesnt get over itself . which is a shame .. this image really deserves exposure .. accidental pun btw ..

an hour or so later .
my internet speeded up .. and i was able to vote on this challenge ..
also bumping you up from 9 to 10 .. just so you know . :)

edited because my comments during voting went in in the wrong order ..

There is something deeply, unsettlingly sad in this photo - I do hope that your subject's life is not as hard as your picture implies. It is a good piece of street photography - not convinced that this was the right challenge for it - or at least, not without a very witty title. Voted earlier - 6 based purely on the photo.

An outstanding portrait. The lighting is perfect. I only know a few people on this site who could execute this as well.
