not sure if your not close enough, or not far enough away. for such an emotional subject, its a photo lacking in emotion.

Its a family member looking on. perhaps your caption should reflect that?

from the DOF it looks like a substantial crop. maybe the uncropped wider view would offer some connection to the beauty of the place, and provide a contrast with the horror of what took place there all those years ago.

For the family, its sad, but at the same time positive in that it may bring some closure at last.

The photo was taken from a reportage point of view and delibertly cropped to exclude the surrounding area it was taken from a distance so as not to intrude in the search.
The search team are in orange ,the two onlookers are casual visitors (local people) to the site
