Portrait 2

By marco_delvalle1
This is my second entry for the Portrait Junior Comp. This, for me, isn't just a portrait of a child, but more like a portrait of the child's life of the poverty he is facing, and how he survives despite his situation. Good luck to everyone in the comp!

The subject, composition, angle would be superb under pretty well any conditions but the light makes this special. It's like a random, irregular spotlight falling on the child.
Don't crop, please. For me this works because of all that empty darkness above.
