Very well done. I would have gone b/w to accent the photojournalistic aspect. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Perhaps a little cropping needed - but the image certainly bespeaks the title you selected. Very nice.

I like the warm WB, seems to suit this picture and also the shallow DOF.

The emotion is very powerful.

This is a great candid shot. We can presume the cart is full of his only posessions, his pose speaks volumes and even the bench has graffiti on it, adding to the mood. Well done.

You were off to a very powerful photograph here. My only real issue is that he is too centered. Moving him to the left onto the thirds line would have made this one much better. I like the shallow depth of field that isolated him nicely from the busy, successful background. Great sense of failure, but I'd like to see the composition out of center.

Great shot. Great DOF.

Some real feeling in this shot. Well done.

Wow, I feel this photo conveys its title perfectly. :)

This image speaks a thousand words. In a sad way, you captured this man's failure - whether that is good or bad.
