This is a very strong picture Mephisto... The way the shadow over the man's face echoes the mood is something...

This is a very powerful shot, the crumbling building and the man's face in shadow it all works together.

There's a story here...I think the black and white works. I go back and forth about the shadow on his face - typical photography 'rule' would have it not there, but I think it adds to the story the photographer is trying to convey, title aside. I think though, that this could use a little distance - moving a little further away would keep me from feeling so pressed against the scene, unable to tak it all in at once. 6

The wording on the boards "Kosovo" together with the bombed out building in the background gives this image a whole different dimension, meaning and impact.

Oh dear :s There's a story there - interesting the way the guy has his head down and is walking into shadow, it sort of echoes the dark destruction above him :)

the composition, with all the harsh highlights and shadows, does not particularly appeal to me, but the composition is interesting.

Interesting shot with a subtle story to it. Great example of photojournalism. I enjoy the black and white but I wonder what the color version looks like. (For comparison sake only)

his face in darkness, the complexity of trees and buildings above, the graffiti providing a sense of location - it tells a story
