A child is playing on the left part of the image, in the middle of a forest. She is immersed in nature and distant from the castle on the right.
That's not the place where she wants to be and doesn't care about luxury nor moneys, she just wants to enjoy her childhood.
The composition is purposely divided in two, and the main focal point is on the castle, the viewer has to see that first but notice the little girl later so he/she has the impression of being amazed by the prominence of the castle,but realizes only later how much more joyful could a simple thing like playing in the woods be.
