The first one I have picked is:
I guess that this is one of the most famous portraits of all time. The Mona Lisa of photography. And if one where to compare them there are resembles between the two. The penetrating eyes, the mystic expression on the mouth.
Afghan girl is a very strong portrait, it really feels like her eyes penetrates you. Everything in the picture is enhancing those eyes. The simple background, the brown/red cloth, skin tone enhance the light green eyes.
You can't help thinking, who is she, what kind of life has she lived, what kind of life will she have, what are her thoughts, etc.
