This is the second picture of mine under the Please, No Vandalism sign.
This man is one of Yogya garbage collectors. They would walk the streets pulling a cart packed to the brim (usually) and pick up your garbage for a modest fee every month (I paid rp5000/month--$0.50 USD).
Post pro: cropping of top and left, new layer of man/cart, curves done selectively to both individually for contrast.

How interesting and good notes. Otherwise I wouldn't know what that cart is. i notice that the man is bare footed.

Beautiful shot Alex and your series is a great WIP.

Again the same composition effect as the previous post. The tighter crop at the right here works better on this subject. With those details our eyes are forced to look more at the man and cart.
Interesting note also.

Very good photo, and strong use of b/w. very good note. I added a WS.

powerful b/w shot. I don't have the courage to subtact the color from my shots yet. perhaps a bit of a tighter cropping, but don't leave out the sign: Dilarang....

Very nice picture Alex, by this image you give us the way some people live over there, hard life!
B&w is a good choice, more emotive!

interesting story told with this picture. The B&w adds more drama and makes it a piece of art
