great intensity and emotion in your entry...it does not appear to be staged.
I just want to give her a hug!
No truer words. It used to be 'sticks & stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me'. That isn't true today. Very poignant photo of such a sad little girl. Good composition and clarity. Good job!
Very good shot! True emotion captured.
Another thought provoking entry for this week's topic. Love the way you chose to crop this and how you captured her hands...that say it all. Kudos to you on your entry.
