The use of sepia makes this photo even more striking.

There's something very compelling about this shot. The love of a loyal friend, although his life may seem desolate, there's joy here too. Nice work.

Good photo, shame you cut his head off.

This is a very touching shot.

Despite this man's obvious plight, he actually looks quite content with his situation in life (at least in this picture). I wouldn't describe this as desolation just because he seems worse off for his disability compared to an able-bodied person. His canine companion probably delivers much happiness, which seems evident. A great shot and an excellent study and capture, but slightly off-brief.

interesting picture, but poor contrast? could have been fixed in Photoshop. 5 points

This is a GREAT photograph. The man actually looks happy despite his situation, and the dog looks like he's glad to know him. Good, very good.

How tragic! I can see the look of love between the man and the dog, but there is stell an overlying sadness in the man's face.

I think the dog makes the picture seem warm, and maybe not so desolate. Its a touching photo and could maybe use a bit more focus.

the interaction between the man and dog move this out of desolation and I wonder personally if being an amputee makes for desolation in and of itself

Be very carefull with this kind of pictures. In this case, the face of the man tell me much more about desolation that the fact he has no legs
