photoblog image Freedom
This pic was taken in a tiny village in Zanzibar. The economic and religious oppression is rife there. I wanted the innocence of the young girl to be tensioned against the fact that she is bound by her surroundings.

Welcome back Kirsten. I'm not too sure about this pic, I see what you are trying to do, but for me, the little girl is totally lost in the clutter. Cropping? Regards, Neil.
Kirsten Pearse: Bingo! That's exactly what I was looking for! smile I wanted her surroundings to be the focus, her to be the secondary 'player' in the pic - Exactly as it is in her country. I have a cropped version (Which I'll post later) and I feel from the original it loses it's intensity. Thanks for the comment Neil! K
