As a depiction of "depression", I am not sure this quite conveys it. The hands above the head and the direct stare into space are more suggestive of someone lost in their own thoughts rather than depressed. If the person had eyes cast down and perhaps were supporting their head on their hands it would be more appropriate to the title.

As regards the photo itself, it is a decent effort - especially as you say it is a candid. I have no specific suggestions.

Thanks for the feedback on the effectiveness of the picture/title - food for thought...

I quite like the way the arms frame the face, and your use of light and shade.
