This woman having on her back her little child and selling the daily issue in Cape Town was something for its self. I loved the moments and I still have her every up and then in my mind. I worked with low ASA nr (320) even if it was around the sunset , because I wanted the picture to come out without a noice. Just some movement...

So they have the big issue in SA as well!!! Lovely colors and movements! I like the joyfull expression of the woman. Maybe it's a tad underexposed to my tastes, but it brings out the colors!

Well, Marios this one is incredibly powerful.
Even though that's taken quite loosely, the "Daily Issue" popping out of the screen is adequately framed to give a lively image, also the orange/dark blue the color opposition is striking.
A very nice one.

hi Marcos. an animated and strong shot. The light is excellent creating wonderful skin tone particularly on the child's face.Brilliant reds.The eye contact from both is captivating. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.

There is a great flow and movement to this one with the low light and brooding sky and the big issue flying into (or out of) the frame. The little backlit glow of the hairs on the back of her neck does it for me.

Out of this world, Marios. Man, you don't shot blancs, do you? advertising quality shot but with strong, genuine feeling. Moving, important but sensuous as to tones and excution.
ps Belated warm welcome to TE

Incredible capture, this image simply bursts with power, energy and vitality, the woman seems so vibrant and strong, great colours of the evening, and obviously the "issue" adds another dimension to already great picture, the message is loud and clear in a beautifull package.
I am so glad to take advantage of the some of my friends here, they take the effort to find gems like this, all I have to do is enjoy them.

First time I am seeing your photos.
This photo is really powerful one.
Warm tone & very effect on this scene & same for the clouds.
Technically even you can enhance few of the areas but it is full with "SOUL". Feelings & body language is refelcted all over the frame.
Improtant part is eyes of both the charcters.

I critiqued this shot before, but for some reason I don't see it.
As I said last time though, I don't think that noise should be an over-riding issue as I saw some National Geographic photography from about 10 years ago and the low light shots were full of noise....but they were still great photographs.
This is a nice shot of a woman at work and the child with her, and would certainly be publishable....especially in the very publication she is selling. That would make an interesting article in itself.

This is a very good portrait, i like the motion in it, and the dark sky as background.
Maybe a little highlight of the shadows, specially their faces would have improved it even further.

Nice photo reportage. It's well done, you can feel emotion in the glance of this woman.
