When I came across this image I immediately felt sadness and pity. This is image is focused entirely on the crouching woman in the middle. The area that draws the most attention is the woman's face. The way she is carrying her pale, thin body - resting her head to the side and crouched down - in addition to the lack of spark in her eyes speaks strongly of defeat and a lack of motivation to continue. The dark shadows and colors of her clothing contribute to the sadness of the image. Also, I think the lacy clothing worn by the woman makes her appear more delicate and feminine, which also conveys the idea that she will not stand up and fight anymore. It makes me wonder what sort of life she has, what she thinks of in the morning when she wakes up. Her sadness appears to come from deep within herself, not simply on the surface.
