| p.1 #6 · Toronto - outside Starbucks |
The dashing cars on the middle on the middle line create a very telling separation between the life "on the top" and "on the bottom" (of the photo). Everybody is moving and busy and only one guy seems to stop, look across the street and notice the homeless person.
I think I would like to see the exposure of the upper half lifted by a bit - just to underline the contrast of the story the photo is telling. My suggestion would be to crop out the guy on the very right - that would also, in my opinion, place more attention on the guy who stopped for the homeless man. Ideally, for me, the basket would not be in the picture but it would have disrespectful to change anything about that of course.
Remarkable, sad shot ... the man on the ground is somebody's son - a child in the past who would have never thought that he would end up so alone that nobody would give him shelter in the time of need.
I like your suggestions here...
And I also like your last comment, something to think about.
