    I love the struggle in the girls expression as she tries to keep up with her mother. But what really make this picture work for me is the lucky (or planned) circumstance of the lighting. Because the backlight rims the girls shoulder, she stands out from the colorful background. But then the light bounces off the street , illuminating her face, making her the primary interest point of the composition.
