one thing doesn't fit in this photo...it looks like she washed her hair an hour ago...doesn't look dirty at all

Doesn't feel real. Girl's hair is too perfect and legs are too clean which contrasts with the rest of the image and thus makes this look posed rather than photojournalistic.

Far too contrived. Not enough spontaneity for this challenge IMHO. Looks like a healthy middle-class girl with a bit of makeup. Technically nice though.

looks too fake.

This looks staged...? If not, I'm terribly sorry. If it is, it's not photojournalsim.

Wow, is this real? Poor girl :( This is a shot that should go onto charity websites. Nice work.

Really interesting...

nicely composed and exposed but a little too 'set up' for my aesthetic. YMMV.

You really captured raw emotion in this photo.
09/01/2010 02:23:20 PM
very emotional shot, hits the heart.

nice environmental portrait. the coins, though, speak more to a set up shot than a possibly found shot. in pj, the rule is about telling the story, not making the story...
