The general atmosphere in the picture is depressing/ friendly.

The picture arouses curiosity/compassion/ a feeling of deep regret.


Making guesses and speculating about the situation


It may be a school gym.

The boy may be older than he looks.

These two people could be relatives.

I get the impression that the people are not very happy here.

They don’t seem to be celebrating something.
