Many people think of Miami Beach as the perfect place to live because of the sun and all the rich people. Unfortunately not everybody is rich.

The guy on the picture makes a living from selling $2 coconuts from a shopping cart. He sleeps, eats and works on the street.

HI from teh CC CLub,

I think what this shot is sufferening from is a bright background that overtakes teh forgreound. A closer crop on teh left may have helped a little as well. This could definitely do with some contrast and or exposure sliding. He has such a happy face and that needs to be brought out, you have so many details that could be brought out with a little dodge and burn, some tweak in selective colour, shadow highlights.

play around with it and see what you come up with!

This is a nicely captured potrait. Exposure on the person is great. Unfortunately the background will not go well especially in a FS. Background though natural is distracting with too many bright areas and the tree behind the person distracts. (No vote)

Somehow I find the bright background very appropriate and instrumental in bringing out this man's character.
