Greetings from the Critique Club

This a bizzare photo. I say bizzare because on one hand she is homeless but on the other hand I get the impression that she's content. The balanced composition (subject and ATM) and vibrant colors convey a sort of symbiosis of the situation that seems rather positive. She's relaxed and carefree and in a good spot for handouts. Now whether this is all true or not is beside the point but the photo conveys this, IMO.

Not much more to say other than great job.

There are enough details in here to make you say "yipes!". The pic does make you want to know more about her story.

she picked a perfect location...you can do a withdraw from the ATM and deposit right to her...of course I don't see many people dropping a $20 to her but maybe she gets a lot of change. Very nice example of street photography
