[] The Buddhist nun stood out in the crowd because of what she was wearing . The photographer chose not to photograph her face. Instead, he photographed her back and her belongings. This gives the audience a clean, simple and solemn impression of the nun. The Buddhist nun is the key image in this photograph.

The audience will notice something special about this Buddhist nun because she is not sitting in a quiet Buddhist temple in the forest or on the mountain. Instead, she is sitting in the United States' capital --- Washington, DC. The combination of the Capitol Hill and the Asian Buddhist nun are very eye-catching as they bring out people's curiosity. As a result, the audience will study the photograph more. The contrast between a solemn figure and the noisy tourist spot as well as the contrast between tranquility and grand view of the Capitol Hill make this photograph very unique.

Professionals can tell that this photograph was taken by an experienced photographer, who knows to accentuate the theme of the event by capturing a unique character in the event and who knows to express the scale of the photograph to bring out the powerfulness of the event.

This is an excellent work of photography.
