This is the last photo in my series on the beggers of Cuenca. I think I should leave it on a good note, one that is not so dark and bleak. This was taken at the footsteps of the main churchs in Cuenca. Good spot to wait if you are a begger. I hope you like it.

You have done a good job of capturing a sad subject. I like this shot as the best of the series although would be tempted to straighten it - otherwise great composition.

Very nice photo. Lovely composition and the light falling on the woman is beautiful. You have captured her emotions very well. Keep it up.

Yes i like it.
you show us in beautiful lights poverty and charity.
I like not to see the man, the gift is anonymous and superb. it is a very beautiful scene.

you have clicked at the right second. I like the anonymous giver in black clothes, the door is very nice as background. it is true the photo needs straightening, but the definition, composition and use of light are just perfect. it is true this reality is sad, but this photo is not showing the dark side, quite on the contrary....

A gain a good one in the series of baggers
The hands that gives and receives
The eye contact that looks at the hand and the door full of crosses
Well composed and captured

Great composition, the relationship of the woman and the anonymous benefactor is well shown here. I appreciate the little touches in this, her eyes on her gift, the faceless giver completely in black (strong and non distracting), the details of the church door, the colour set of green, blue, black.I could go on :) Very well done.
I must admit it's sad to see the end of this series...
