This picture was shot in May 2000. That was a warm Saturday

afternoon and I was wondering on the street when I noticed this

little girl lying there on the ground.

Almost unbearable to look at. The subject matter makes this image very powerfull (to me) the open eye even more so. I would crop the lower part of the image, but it would not make it more or less powerfull. The rating system doesn't seem to fit this type of photograph -so I will not rate it.

I agree with the comment above, I would crop the bright patch out of the lower portion of the frame. It is a powerful and moving photo.

I agree with the first comment except for the cropping. I think the girl lying in the dark area offers some sort of symbolism. Leaving the bright area below her only adds to the effect. Also, it could be just coincidence, but she may be lying where she is because it is cooler in the shade. Leaving the bright/sunny area at the bottom of the photo will also convey this.
