Thanks for your visit & critque John. Highly appreciated.
Taking this shot was quite difficult in my limited abilities. The reasons were two...the light was low & the source of light in the room was a flouroscent lamp. Secondly the weaving activity is very dynamic & she was moving very fast resulting in motion blur & also problems with focussing. I took her permission for photographing her, but at the same time did not want to disrupt her work & her valuable time. This and a few other shots came out well. I tried both aperture priority & manual mode...I don't really remember off-hand what was the mode for this specific shot though.
Thanks again for liking this picture. It's also a pert of my endeavour to show the fine arts and the artisans of my country & also their way of life
