You have captured a loving moment between mum and daughter. Love it!! The look on the faces of the other two girls really add to the moment as they seem to be wondering what on earth you are doing!!! I like the positioning of the mum. Usually told you have to have people looking/walking into the image but I think the opposite works well this time!! It is all lovely and sharp and exposure, mainly, has been well handled. I have enjoyed looking at all the notices showing what veg/fruit is for sale and it's price!!
The only slight criticism I have is the doorway on the right is blown out? I know how hard it is in a scene like this to get exposure correct all over but wonder if you have enough detail in raw to bring some back there? Or crop it out? Having now seen the original the cropping is spot on!!
Great shot, well done.   Posted: 10/03/2020 08:39:44

Ooooooh. This is good! My only (super picky) thoughts were that I agree with Angela on the doorway. Also wish there was a little less shadow on the woman's face. But that is SUPER picky. :) I mean, for this type of scene lighting is rarely accommodating. And its really a great shot.   Posted: 10/04/2020 18:38:47

Great photojournalistic image. There is emotion between the mother and child and who knows whether in 50 years we'll ask "why is everyone wearing a mask" or whether masks may become common place? I like that you made this a black and white image.   Posted: 10/10/2020 06:06:49

Nice shot, here the composition works due to the relation child mother and sales lady. Would temper a bit the highlights - this in case the picture needs to be printed.   Posted: 10/11/2020 01:09:34

Strange realities and strange times we live in, right? Two girls in the back wearing their masks - showcases the beauty of life and how it goes on. A definite journalistic image to capture the times of the pandemic!

Great capture of a moment of the mother and child even as the curious girls look at them. Good choice of monochrome.   Posted: 10/12/2020 03:37:16

You definitely captured a special moment in time between this mother and child, Randall! I like the crop and definitely like the B&W. I think it's a powerful photojournalistic shot! Well done!   Posted: 10/14/2020 00:31:36
