Exellent photo. And that white thing (I don't know the word) is like another barrier between her and her mother and underlines the sadness in her eyes. TFS

Caleb. I like this one even more the one with the boy. This one has such strong filmic qualities - it is a poster from a super documentary about India. Her face is beautiful, heart breakingly so (I believe she is crying too), and that window rail bisecting the frame adds a lot too.
Wonderful shot! Francis

A great photo! Really quite amazing to capture this moment. I also agree that the window rail splitting the photo really adds to this. Very well done!

A very good use of DOF, Caleb, to accentuate the eyes. The white bar and the back of her head are out of focus - so you didn't have a lot to play with - but the eyes and tears are very sharp. I like the expression on the face of the older woman in the background - I can imagine her thinking "I know what you are going through young lady". A very good capture of life in India. Cheers . . .

Taking my time to spot those from your gallery that radiates and are very balanced to me I like this close well composed one for the convincing look of the girl nicely placed towards a suggestive bacground.

A nice photo Caleb. The tearful eyes really capture the attention, but the bangles and colourful arm are important parts of the composition.
