I like it with the contrast with child, but slight motion blur in the foot I would have dock you five points. :P

I like the pictoral and "titled" comment. Great contrasts!

Well captured and the girl adds to the photo, would have liked to see a bit more up.

It's a nice shot, and the angle is good - the closed doors look scary and dominating, especially in contrast to the cute colourful kid.

However, conceptually I don't get it. Closed doors and the angle you used could be symbolic of exclusion (maybe by particular religious rules or whatever), but then the kid is an entirely random element in the picture. So it seems like you saw there was a Religion challenge, and then walked up to a church and took some shots without thinking about it too much. Which does meet the challenge, but there's a whole sea of potential meaning that you're then entirely missing out on.

I personally would have cropped to the bottom of the stairs and possible also cropped out the uprights on each side.
