What stood out to me was the expression on the girl’s face and the placement of her hands.
The girl seems to be staring at the person taking the picture wondering what they are doing.Answers
The main focus of the photograph is the girl in the foreground. In the background things are not clear.
The unclear background makes you focus on the young girls expression wondering what it means.
She looks scared or confused. She also seems to be insecure by the placement of her hands or protecting herself.Point of View/Perspective
Most of the background of the photo is also blurred or out of focus. This again draws your eyes to the girl in the foreground. The girl is the only object in the photograph that is in complete focus showing her importance to the photograph.Technique
It seems as if the photographer was standing very close to the girl when the picture was taken. The look on her face is of shock and curiosity.
The focal point of the picture is the girl. The contrast and the framing of her face draws you to her when you open your eyes.Composition Factors
This picture is targeted at the people of America. This shows what a hard life these people have and also to show that there are children involved.Audience
