While this boy was from a very poor part of Cairo (an area where garbage is recycled and sorted) - he was one of the friendliest and he and his friends were very keen for photos. He had a sparkle in his eye... which of course I've enhanced a little :)

Hi Dave, I like this composition a lot and your PP treatment works well, really drawing attention to the boys eyes rather than the other elements.

waht a beauty shot for the kid eyes, the bright and quality is impressive. I like of the DOF too. Great job.

I really like that even though this boy is surrounded by garbage and obviously living a very tough life, that it's his EYES that we see, and the life there in them. Sorry for my lack of words, but that's the only way I can describe what I feel when I look at this. A really great portrait that to me tells a story. TFS
