This is a pretty damning picture, Fortunately I know the other Glasgow, with wonderful municipal buildings and good houses. This guy looks pretty well-dressed to be sleeping rough?

This is a bit underexposed but it had me attentive. I didn't notice the person immediately, but on closer viewing it does look a little staged. This individual is wearing clean trainers & clothes, and has none of the usual apparel associated with a homeless person bedding down.

Although it seems like picking nits, it does matter considering the point you're making.

Again, good to see not everyone choosing the pretty side. I wonder if a flat on shot of the wall would have been better...at an angle, the dull ground distracts. Also needs a bit of brightening.

A very strong shot. A bit dark alldough, but I don't know if that is intencional to dramatize the picture. Nice work

It's funny how this is never shown in the promo videos for Glasgow... Certain parts of Edinburgh aren't much better! Still, they can make great photographs!

A very graphic image..which I would like to think was posed..but regardless, it`s sadly typical of any big city.I like the way you have used the colourful graffiti
to liven up the image.
If this is taken by the person I`m thinking of...(I see you are taking no chances with washed out skies?) If not..please ignore me :)
Strong image ..Powerful message....8
