Tamara is the name of this little adorable girl sitting in front of an old church downtown Lima.
I bought some food for her and her mother. It is so heartbreaking to see dozens of precious young lifes like this affected by poverty.

Thanks for the votes and nice comments!!

Now THIS is an awesome photograph!
Reaches in deep and certainly one that long after I navigate away from it, will still be seen.

Absolutely amazing! The coloring is superb, you even captured the purple in the pigeon behind her. This brings so much emotion to it. This will definitely be on the front page. 10

Really hope this wins for you.
Good luck

The first thing I thought when I saw this was 'dark' but the more I look the more the tone makes the shot. I would like to see a little more seperation of her hair from the dark background though.

This is the best I've seen in the challenge so far. The expression on her face, with the drooping flowers and the single pigeon behind her. I love it. This looks a lot like Librodo. 9
