Hi Jan, I really like this pic. The B&W and the blurry background gives a nice effect. Can only wonder what the little kid with the plastic container and cardboard is up to..

you have captured the anguish on the boys face, showing the hardships he obviously endures on a daily basis. the use of B&W elevates the passion within the shot. the DOF is spot on concentrating the viewer to the main purpose for the shot, namely the boy.
this is a very good photo well done and thanks for sharing, chris
