They really need to have challenges that allow for overlays. This is great, the overlay version is even better.

What the heck is this doing down here? Well I liked it a lot. And really, that's all that matters. :-)

this photo looks like a critique of every photograph of "third world" children. or it is a political cartoon about the detrimental effects of international plastic culture on "native" populations. The strategic tear in the bag intrigues me. It's as if you couldn't resist the very sort of thing you're critiquing, those big dark beckoning eyes...

Well, I don't understand the title. What is this picture trying to say? Good detail but why?

wonderfully abstract picture . .Why oh why is there a guy standing with one of these bags on his head . . ?

Nicely taken though and a surprisingly powerful image.

Maybe in the black and white will be better for giving strong character for this boy..

I think the crop is hurting this one. Either have the whole head or at least the entire right (his left) eye. I think cropping right on the center of his face or showing his entire head would be best. Neat idea though.

avg vote, the net does nothing and looks out of place. would have liked the photo better if it wasn't there.

Interesting. It looks like a bit of noise filter added (perhaps?) but I like that - gives it an interesting overall texture and feel to the photo.

Very creative - makes me want to know more about the purpose of the net over his head. The eye is penetrating.

Very cool. I love his eye -- I cannot stop looking into it.

Be careful - he might suffocate. Very cool capture and excellent processing. But if my assumptions are correct this is nothing unusual.
