A wonderfully observed, composed and processed photograph of this gorgeous yet somewhat emotive scene.

So much expression on the boys face which could be interpreted in various ways, especially when contrast him with the person sleeping in the background.

I would have cropped down the centre of the pillar, but your inclusion of the sleeping brother makes such a stronger social comment and more powerful image.

Isn't it amazing that we are all preparing for a feast, spending money on nonsensical items that most of us don't need but want and there are people in the world with nothing but smiles on their faces. I've heard that people now days give biros instead of money. Crazy, insane world we live in
We need to see this to gain some perspective on our lives that most of us complain about, relentlessly.
Well deserved awards - I already gave one today.

Brilliant..up til now, Burn Blue stood in a league of his own for travel photography.... now there are the two of you up there.
I wish when I;d visited India on previous occassions I had been into photography, there is a wealth of subject matter there.

Briliant work Jeremy,

Gareth.Smile

The image sums up a different lifestyle of how the other half lives.
The only consolation is the little's boy expression isn't total sorrow.
He probably doesn't know there's a better live somewhere.

Another cracking image Jeremy, worthy of all the awards as Derek says and I agree with Ron, it has the appearance of top quality photojournalism. The colours and sharpness are superb and yet again you've handled a high contrast scene superbly. There's such soulful eye contact from your subject and it's a wonderful portrait again elevated by the inclusion of the contextual details in the background.
