A simple and very common daily scene in Gambia - a woman working hard in the beautiful green fields on the north bank of the Gambia River, a few kms far from the Island of Janjanbureh, formerly known as Georgetown. No visible face here, the colourful clothes of the women really caught my eye in such a green field.

I've always enjoyed these types of views, and its easy to see why right?
nice to see that you smartly left out the skyline, just focusing on the lady and allowing all the green to do its thing! :)
I have one question though, what are the men doing when the women are working in the fields?
great post for TE

La combinaison de la focale choisie et de la grande ouverture t'a permis "d'isoler" de très belle façon cette femme travaillant dans les champs.

very original shot of this lady working in the fields
Only a small spot of red and white lost in all this greenery, but well self explanatory the way it is
Bravo, have a nice day

Lovely scene, very mininal but still very powerful showing this woman hard at work in the fields. The fact that she is such a small but obvious element in the scene shows the scale of the work that waits here. Very nicely done, and a great composition.
All the best

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage et le point de vue magnifique sur la tête de la dame au milieu des champs verts. La composition est excellent et le rendu d'une grande netteté.

This is a very nice daily life photo, which probably captures life in the countryside very well. The colours are bright and beautiful but hardly hide the fact that working in the fields in the intense heat is a very tough job.

C'est une très belle photo, simple mais avec un bel impact visuel.

Beautiful colours and a very simple but very attractive composition. Well observed!

un'altrea bella rappresentazione della fatica delle donne in questo particolare territorio africano, espresso molto bene tra colori forti che aiutano a creare una suggestiva composizione.
Ciao e buona serata

Good subject and very good focus on the woman in the field. Exposure is very good, colours are very nice. It would have been better again if you outcentered the woman to a thirds line I think.
ourania (43672) 2013-12-06 14:07
a wonderful picture from life and work in the fields. A most effective simple composition that says a lot. I love the waves of greenery and the great sense of depth. The textures and the colours have a mesmerizing effect and the working woman stands out with the exquisite sharpness you gave her and with her fine colours and posture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Wish you a very nice weekend.

Ola dear Ana
a beautiful, minimalistic shot, I love the textures of the long grass and the wonderful cool green and yellow tones. The person working in the field provides an excellent element of interest as well as good contrast. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the woman is harvesting in the fields. It's very efective for the color contrast between mostly green field and red T-shirts/purple foulard. And, you catch a good scene in which the woman is holding crops.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-12-08 2:34
that´s truly delightful!
Simple,but so strong and expresive when it comes to its graphics and perception scene.
I like this close-up view focusing only on the woman and so magnificent scenery around.
Have a nice sunday
jcpix (13908) 2013-12-08 9:31
I wholeheartedly agree with Craig on this one...leaving out the skyline was a smart choice for composition. All of the focus and attention is given to this woman working in the fields. This is a wonderful portrayal of daily life, and the hard work put forth by these individuals. Great depth of field, the blurred foreground aids greatly in the sense of depth and compressed perspective. Bright, detailed and wisely realized. Great shot!
boa (7327) 2013-12-08 13:04
a simple and common daily scene, yes, but still interesting to have a glimpse of daily life when you come from a different part of the world. I like the simplicity in this scene and the red is a good eye-catching object in this scene, Tfs!
Have a nice evening.
Gigidusud (20771) 2013-12-08 15:29
Splendid scene with this woman at work in the fields. Beautiful green tones and great light. I like it!
Waylim (25502) 2013-12-10 16:58
Excllent daily life image with a pov that put us right in the middle of the field. I feel like being there myself. Love how the green field make me feel like a little person within the field trying to see beyond.
abmdsudi (52499) 2013-12-11 7:05
It's lovely shot to show how colour can have an effect on an image as the woman clothes popping up and balance the dominant enriched green whilst still remaining at contrast to each other. The attractive image shows good composition, dof and all seems to work really well and potentially good.
Beautiful shot!!! Congrats

Women are more out working in the fields, more than men work - and mostly seen in third-world countries.
Fine placed the lady within the green planted field, in great contrast to its surrounding.
Bom fim de semana,
siudzi (34141) 2013-12-15 2:44
Wow! What a shot! Really impressive and spectacular composition taken with superb sense of the moment and extremely well executed colors. Bravo! Great work!
Have a lovely day!

simple but interesting scenery
from daily life at Gambia
one shot is one thousand words
Miguel82 (27670) 2014-11-15 2:19
Work is so hard in these green fields Ana, the heat and the grass itself cutting the skin are not easy to tolerate

Ola Ana! Very fine composition. Wonderful POV, fine lightness and colours. Good contrast and sharpness. Good quality. Regards! Saude!
