Hi Sandra!
Wonderful composition with a fantastic light!
The stonework is two third of the picture the boy is in the other third. The stones in the darker part and the boy in the light, excellent!
Questions arise then one looks at the boys face there is he looking? What are his feelings? I think this is the strongest part of the whole picture!

Sandra Schlesinger December 03, 2007

Thanks so much for the comments, Jan-Olof. I agree: the questions that arise from the boy's gaze are central to the image. Actually, he was looking at a mine victim who had lost his legs. #5164277

You really captured the boy feeling at the right moment. These kind of pictures are by far strongest one can ever take! I would say that it's a priceless picture since it brings some sort of message to the viewer.
