Such beautiful light in the photo! Great composition too, the people doing different things make it interesting, especially the two women to the right. A special "Like" for your note, yes, let's hope so.
Thanks for this suggestive and beautiful picture!

I like pictures taken in the small hours of the day. You titled your picture 'The road to a better future'. I think you are right: children go to school - they'll be more educated persons, other people go sell something - they'll be more rich...

a curious play of pairs across the photo with a lonely character appearing right in the middle of it and breaking that feeling, along with his bike.
A wonderful streak of light coming from above making the atmosphere very special, typical from that mornings at Myanmar.
Very beautiful photo!

I really like this king of misty light that gives a great picture with a nice atmopsphere. The scene is splendid with these people we can see on the road until the back of the picture. Well chosen for your theme. Even if these elections are just the beginning of the begining, even if it is, may be, a strategy of junta against the commercial blockade, I think it is a big hope and the real start of something else.
