This is a girl that I saw in India. She was protecting the apple with her little fingers, taking a bite once in a while and staring at me.

From the Critique Club

At first I did not want to do a critique of this image because it is not one of the nicest depictions of children that one could shoot, but then I realized that it is because it's not one of the nicest shots that gives it some of it's power as an image! So, here goes:

The lighting on this image is very nice. You did a wonderful job of using the lighting to bring out the subject, while somewhat muting what I'll call background noise (unwanted background elements that you have little or no control over)! The color is very nice here, but for once I would actually like to see an image in B/W! (Anyone that knows me would no that this is NOT my style, I'm a love of color person!)

The focus is very good here also. Just a touch of softness on the subject that seems to accentuate the condition that she is in!

The only thing I would change (besides trying B/W) would be a shallower DOF to help to mask the background clutter! Oh I just thought of another treatment that might work well here. If there was more of the background clutter (pull back on zoom or crop out further) it may help to accentuate the living conditiions surrounding the subject!

Very nice photojournalism style of shot! Looking forward to seeing more.

This is an excellent photo, but disturbing. I want to put my arms around him.
I think it's a winner.
