A visit to the neighbourhood market at Ang Mo Kio yielded this find: a boy yearning for a toy on sale at a stall in the open. The morning lighting was brilliant, highlighting the boy as well as the toy he was longing for. Further processing in Photoshop has helped to isolate the boy even further as the main subject.
