Not Madonna and Child...

Beautiful image I found on Time magazine's website, showing the top 10 photographs of 2008, this came tenth! Unbelievably its a reportage photograph from Afghanistan. If it hadn't said that underneath I would be convinced it was a set up shot meant to recreate the early Renaissance paintings of Madonna and Child. What do you think, has it been set up at all?
Even if it has, it's still a beautiful image. Enjoy.

  1. I always think of people from that part of the world as being dark.
    This proves me wrong.

    I don't care if it was set up.
    It's beutiful.
    Not just the setup, lighting and all that. It's her emotions that get me
