My nomination. Gritty not pretty photo comes across as an authentic moment. Portrait of young working America that conveys strength and determination. B&W was an excellent choice. Nice composition with verticals and a strong diagonal that leads from bottom left to upper right. That positive "onwards and upwards" path. Kudos to the artist.

My choice. distant, detached, un-posed. Remains a stranger.
