I really want to write a full critique with my opinion, contradictions, positives, negatives but this time its really very difficult because what I see is flawless. And by flawless of course I do not mean pretty and nice. Its dirty, human, tragic, real, and although cheap on the set, so rich in emotions and atmosphere.

Frame: Its even difficult to convince yourself that this is not a preset photo, but a real time street photograph. The moment captured, the giving and the anticipation of the probably tired topless guy is like you have watched a short movie clip. The great antithesis that makes the whole scene even greater is the happy pakistan guy on the phone booth. You see a variety and enrichment of different emotions coming from the lowest classes living among us.

Colours: As a true fan of B&W photography and do not really have to say much here. A great shot with contrast that depicts the theme perfectly. Everything is sharp and easily recognizable form the people to their emotions and feelings.

Once more I envy your technique models and set up, and the funniest thing is that everyone is accessible to it...

Bravo! Keep up the good and inspiring work... and be careful out there...

As *artisan3* says itīs full of emotion itīs like reality slaps in your face and this kind of photos are pure gold in this time where everyone just look at himself.

There is no ‘we’ or "share" in ‘food’. :)
