Hi Dick,

Thank you very much for looking and your kind and detailed comments. The
second picture was simply a girl waiting somebody, I had the luck to catch
she at the right moment, I remember that a second later the picture was

On the first one I've already slightly cropped the left side, IMO the actual
portion give better a sense of perspective and the solitude of the little
girl in the middle of the civilization...,

Saludos cordiales

Luis - The second of these is a really powerful image.  It sets me to
wondering what is going on in the girl's mind as she looks up the street at
the two men shrouded on darkness.

At first I thought I would suggest cropping off some of that white wall to
the left but then I got to feeling that all that white seems to add to the
tension, so leave it be is my final word.  It's necessary.

It's a really fine photograph and the pairing works well, too:  
indifference and concern.
