I like it!
Great use of DOF. You can't do that with a pocket camera.

Makes one wonder whether it was someone in her family or a friend of her family. The way she's holding her hands so tightly adds to the overall mood of the image.

An exceptional photograph in all respects.

Very nice image. Did you ever consider an alternate B&W version to help create an ever more somber mood?
