I'm not really fond of this kind of shot. I find it hard to find the subject, due to the difference in lighting.

Anyhow, I like the composition of the house lined up and its separated by a walkway.

I agree to the overall lightning in your picture. Did you consider some kind of HDR to enhance the light in the shadowy areas, so we could better see the interesting life?

@Henrik Herskind: Hi Henrik. Thanks for the kind words. I did not thought of applying HDR to this image as it might defeat my purpose of showing the true, gritty hard life experienced by the people here. :)
