Hi Jean Paul,
I like this shot, especially your focus on the woman. This shot tells a lot. The woman seems to be very sad with her child. Maybe she is poor and experiences a hard life? Maybe she has a strong desire to something? But we don't know. Well done.

Bonjour Jean Paul
Quel beau portrait de la mère et son enfant, je pense inévitablement aux peintures de la vierge et son enfant avec le regard perdu quelque part là haut...

I find the composition a little too centereded, and therefore somewhat static, and the fact that you seem to have blurred the background only during postprocessing (a fine edge around the silhouette of the woman is still visible; but I might be wrong here and the effect is due to fill flash) makes the mother and the kid look a little like 2-dimensional cardboard cut-outs placed on the street... one way out would be to have a much tighter framing, focusing only on their faces and they way kid leans into his mothers arms, showing complete trust. B%W works well though, the colours would certainly be distracting.
