This is technically exceptional, a very moving portrait, (it makes me want to cry) and with the caption it becomes a great piece of journalism.
Superb.

This child caught my eye and grabbed my heart during shooting near the Mexico-California border. It is an expression that seems to have more depth of sorrow than a child should own. Makes me want to hug all orphans in the world.

Tells a great story. This is what photography is really all about. I have seen enough close-ups of bugs and wide roads going out to the horizon. What happened to this child and how can we all help children like her? That is what you have me us wonder. Keep on taking great pictures.

I'm told this remark is toward a 'peer award' but despite having taken a half to a million photos, I'm just a rank amateur compared to the master who took this wonderful, poignant photo. Kucos.
