Wecome to TE. Powerful shot. Her eyes and expression are beautifull, somewhow her exprassion and pose with the little child on her arms made me think of a version of the Virgem Mary...

Welcome to TE
A powerful composition where one can read many emotions.
To bring forward other's sufferance is a good way to keep these peoples alive and hopefully shorten the conflict,so they can return home.

This is a great shot, perfect use of black and white. Hope to see more!

What an amazing shot! Technically excellent (lighting, exposure levels, sharpness...) but it is the expressions on mother and child that carry most impact. Also, the similarity with images of Blessed Mary and Baby Jesus is striking.
Very well done, one for my favourites. Thank you. Welcome to TE!

Welcome to Trekearth! Simply stunning portrait. The emotion in their faces is heartbreaking. You have captured it beautifully in B&W. The lighting, contrast, composition are all outstanding. Wonderful shot! Again, welcome! TFS,

What a shot of a mother and child. The facial expression on the mother tells alot of story.
Someting in those eyes that says alot.

Great shot, I guess no point giving any advices, there are enough out there. Just felt like saying it's great and remind me of Kudelka and maybe a bit Salgado.

The love of a mother towards a child even under refuge condition will never be changed. It is a simple truth but some human being is working things the other way round. I feel really sad seeing and hearing some mother do not care on their child due to wealth and other factors. It simply kills the mother love towards their children.

Piękne ujęcie, pełne spokoju, bijącego zwłaszcza z twarzy kobiety, wydaje się ona spoglądać gdzieś daleko, poza horyzont i poza świat.

Funny pseudo... Mzungu... I remember this name for white people in Africa...
Great portrait, superb expressions.
An emotional shot, rgs

Extremely classical shot...
The ones that suppose to crash our ego and soften our hearts...
And... They apparently do... The magic is still working quite efficiently...

A piec of art in my point of view although it's very saf and touched my heart. Well composed with great light and colors. Really impressive shot. You can contact with both of them and feel their pain by your heart easily.
Thanks for sharing
