Just would like to test how this kind of picture will be accepted here.

I chance upon this kid in the housing along the old railway in Manila. When I saw the cigarette box wit the word "fortune" I know exactly how to frame this beautiful girl.

Why the edge? It symbolizes living life in the edge... marginalized... But they're just kids. I wish they'll be fortunate enough to live a deecnt life in the future.

Congratulations Manuel,
I love the thought behind the composition and the greyscale says a lot with elements without getting destracted with colors.
TFS,
Shahid

nice idea behind the photo and the photo itself is done very nicely..

clever use of top-down angle, and the placement of the cigarrete pack..

i especially like how the girl's one eye is visible :)

good job manuel!

Wow Sir Super Galeng talaga ng mga work nyo!Sana po magkaroon ulit ng chance para maka attend ng seminar nyo dito sa pinas!

To be honest, I like this better than your usual work - simply because of its honesty.

You're a master of post-production, you bring us beauty super-enhanced; a shot like this, as you occasionally share, shows your skill as a photographer - and your empathy for your subject.

Thanks for sharing this.

p.s. Thank you for being a passive inspiration via this site.

I like this very much Manny! I like the proper placements of the objects within the frame and your unusual point of view which is necessary to make the placements of the objects effective. For my taste it would be better to clone a little space off the right hand side to lose the left eye area of the girl. It is right now just blackened. Are you standing on a chair here?

Life is what you capture!

And i am pleased ,...
To be able to read it.

Thanks

This is just brilliant. The way three elements -- the cigarette box, the bowl of food and the girl -- with the focus on her eye -- all reflect each other and comment on each other (in terms of shape, color, tone, and literally through the word "fortunate) is just fantastic. This is one of the best photos of its kind I've seen. And especially because it is an image that is both aesthetically stunning AND socially relevant, as elaborated in your note. Really glad I found this photo. -Hugh

What a great composition! In B&W, it is just a very adequate choice...eye of the girl is powerful... I don't know if it is in a sadly or happy way?
Great eye woth the cogarettes named fortune... what a ironic name...
