Photographically, it's an excellent image. I like the tones and detail. Emotionally, I find the image disturbing. Whether the girl was struck by the man or not, she appears to be in distress. Therefore, the image leaves me feeling troubled. In short, it's a very good shot and conveys alot of emotions (albeit not happy ones) which is what a good photo is supposed to do.

Extremely well done!

Regards, Chris

You have really captured a bit of photojournalism here Alfred. The body language from both people smacks you with an immediate emotional response and demands a closer look. The title incorporated within the image I think best describes the image, and again I think the titles we use on mft have to be carefully expressed not to editorialize or present a bias. It is also a technically sound image impo. very well done. Have a great day gss

a range of possible interpretations come to mind as above declared from a viewing of the image and consequently a flood of ambivalences around it yet when I observe the words under your image in the frame, you highlight 'attack' so that does away with possible meanings from your direction. Having said that it is a disturbing photo in many ways and gets one thinking. In this I like the image and the impact it has. The composition and conversion are all spot on for me. In short it gets my motor running for me so well done. I would personally prefer that the words you put in the frame were not there - just to let imaginations roam free but it doesnt interfere with my 10.
