I was standing in a position against a very strong sun light, and it was almost impossible to achieve decently balanced image, even so with the limited dynamic range on my old Olympus E-520. Armed with the 40-150mm F3.5-4.5, I decided to shoot the silhouette of the beggar instead. The scene was calling out to me, and I just could not pass by without snapping a shot, though the technical execution was far from perfect.
When was the last time you spare some coins, or buy a street beggar a nice, warm meal?
If this question makes you feel awkward and you ought to walk with me along Kuala Lumpur streets. It will open your eyes, wide.
