Beautiful Life

By mmz_khan    
Her name is Meem. She is in standard 5. She has 4 members in her family. She lives in a small house. She tries to help her mother in daily house hold work. She is helping her mother to grind the beans. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up. Life is most beautiful in its simplest format.

Like this one. Not a classic composition and that could be argued, but this one works.

It's a lovely, characterful image. I like the fact that she is looking away from us and towards the light - there's a whole world of village activity going on out there and it's much more interesting than we are...

Something that intrigues me - the heads of Western medieval monarchs on the bed linen. They seem to be watching her...

I might try cropping tighter - take the top down to just above the dark red quilt, then a little off the left, a little off the right. The story is the tray of beans leading up to her face. That gives enough detail and context. Going beyond that the extra detail serves less purpose for me.

Meem is beautiful, in what she does, what she aspires to, and how she is. I wish her every success in life: it cannot be easy, but I hope that she will (as my daughter has) grow up to be a teacher, and a role model for younger people.

And you have taken a beautiful picture of her. I think that the bedding (if that's what it is) is part of the story, and I have no quarrel with the composition.

I do want to make three minor changes. I've cloned out the two bright patches above Meem. Similarly, two brighter bits on the right hand edge of the frame. Finally, I burned in the bottom left corner a little.

One of your best: not so "brass knuckles" as yesterday's post, but this makes me uncomfortable because I see the gulf between the comforts of Meem's home, and my own.
