Photographer's Note

Another addition to Fall 04 hunt : "a symbol representing your country."

This boy lives in Santa Catarina island, and like other fishermen children, sells shells to tourists to help his family.

The green & yellow shirt of brazillian soccer uniform is certainly a symbol of my country that can be reconigzed everywhere. A sad fact is that hopelesness and misery of children also reprents my country.

I´ve decided do make a mask with pen tool around the boy and turn background to BW with channel mixer to emphasize the item´s goal. The original color of sand and shells were a little distracting. No more post processing features were added, besides framing.
All critiques are welcome
