A good photojournalistic, yet artistic shot here, and one that works well in black & white.

They stand and sit
as blank as a sign,
eyes pointing like arrows
under descriptions of empty people
or hollow places. 9

I wish challenges were filled with photos like this. I could stare at this for an hour thinking about what these folks are up to, how life is going for them, etc. I wish I took more shots like this for that matter. Really nice, 10.

Nice use of b/w to give a photojournalistic feel. I think you used too much contrast because you lost the hair of the lady standing and the details on her clothing. But maybe that was your message about the way people blend into their surroundings. If that is your intent, then excellent work.

Interesting image. I would have lightened the ladies quite a bit more. They are overpowered by the sign. Too bad, since I find them much more interesting. That little sliver of grey just beyond the sign on the left bottom of the image is also distracting.

A simple moment that's full of social commentary in a rather comical way. 8.

I really love this image. No really - its amazing. BUT, the neat image really ruins it for me. All the texture is gone. Would love to see the original.

nice candid. maybe a bit too dark as the outlien of their heads have been lost. 5

It's a good image, but you're not helping me with the story.

great choice for b&w and capture of her looking. for me, a little too much contrast. 6
