Its very beautiful. I love the pureness of how she appears to portray. But it would seem as if she had been shunned or taken away. So the interesting contradiction between the red and the purity of the white.

So as I see it this is like a ying yang photo which I doubt it is or photo of captivation of innocences.

The white I believe is a symbolic proof of her being pure of heart, what ever she had done it was probably an honest mistake. she is ignorant when it comes to knowing what right and wrong is like a child, probably even put up by her own older sibling to do something he knew was bad and he just wanted to see her get in trouble for something for the pure reason of either jealousy or just to be mean.

The red is a symbol of blood or in this case a punishment color. and the fact it covers her mouth means she tried to explain and her parent/guardian wouldn't have anything to do with listening to any kind of excuse for such a act she had committed. So they silenced her as a punishment.

Her eyes scream confusion, scared, and desperation for freedom or even a second and fair trial.

All the way around the photo isn't just a photo its a picture that tells a story and thats what I think makes this photo special. YOU ARE AWESOME AT EXECUTION! Don't let anyone take your dream away your art proves to anyone you are more than worthy to have a voice <3 Thank you for sharing such a intimate piece =D Have a artsy day!

Ich persönlich finde die Aufnahme sehr ausdrucksstark, was nicht verwunderlich ist, wenn man sich mal durch Ihre gallerie klickt :) Woran ich mäkeln muss(/will) ist dieser dunkeln-wir-mal-die-ecken-ab-effekt. Das schaut arg nach hobby-photographen aus und ich kann mir nich vorstellen, dass es dem bild zuträglich ist, da der Fokus durch das rote Tuch sowieso schon auf der richtigen Stelle liegt.

danke! :)

allerdings arbeite ich nicht mit "irgendwelchen" hobby-fotografen die keine ahnung von photoshop haben und glaube, dass die abgedunkelten ecken sicher geschmackssache sind. mich stören sie nicht (wobei ich es mir auch ohne die gut vorstellen kann) und ich denke mir, dass er den effekt ganz passend fand weil es so leicht psychomäßig rüberkommen soll aber das muss ja nicht jedem gefallen - auf jeden fall danke ich dir für deine kritik!
