    I wondered if anyone of you would please analyze this photo for me. I took this picture to an assignement at school and the teacher has given me some critisism back about my analyzing of the photo which I don't agree on. Could any of you please write a little bit about this picture so I could see who's right

    Post your analysis and your teacher's comments first, please, so we can see what was said and make some informed comments.
    If you don't we might begin to suspect that you just want us to do your assignment for you.
    It wouldn't be the first time someone has asked a question like this to try and get us to do their work ;)

    Looks like a burning doll on some rocks. If you want a deeper analization, you might want to express why you took the picture.

    It looks like the liberation from childhood.

    Again a little tough with out some info. At first glance you have burnt a child's doll. Definitely dramatic. I am not clear how it goes beyond that.

    I've disscused the matter with my teacher and she just didn't see my point I guess. But now I got an A. Sorry for not replying here. Tottaly forgot ;)

    Edit: But anyway. Did you think it was a nice picture? The title is "Children at war" and the picture tells this tale about a little girl who's murdered with the rest of her village

    It has totally failed as a picture, then, hasn't it?
    If you have to explain a picture to someone for them to 'get it', then the picture isn't telling the story you want it to tell.
    There are several critical readings one can make of your picture and what you want it to say isn't one of them. Most of the readings come out relating to 'loss of innocence'.
    From a purely technique point of view then it's OK - but as far as doing the job you want it to goes you miss by a mile.

    If you are trying to tell a story with a photograph on its own, you will almost always, actually I would go as far and say -always-, fail to get your exact meaning communicated. If you want to tell a story, pick up a pen and paper.

    When that happens it just means that the photographer isn't very good ;)
