After a few months, I'm returning to my photos of Senegal. This time I'm posting a photo of a really impressive place, not far from Kedougou, Eastern Senegal, where we can find many people digging and looking for gold, trying hard to improve their living conditions.

Great composition amazing use of the human element here with great contrast between the rocks and the color of the dresses. A good balancing... Bravo.

Les moyens pour creuser sont très rudimentaires et ils doivent travailler très fort pour trouver de la poussière d'or. J'aime ce cadrage serré qui place les deux protagonistes en diagonale dans l'image.

An excellent, simple and well balanced composition. I saw similar open mines in Sierra Leone, where lots of people were digging for diamonds. The two men are perfectly placed near opposite corners and the red shirt adds a splash of bright colour matching the natural colour of the earth very well. The terraces give a kind of rhythm to the composition.

Excellent composition with these men in the diagonal and the holes in the rocks.

una vita molto difficile, dura e senza un futuro, se non nella speranza di trovare la...fortuna.
Bello il tuo scatto, due persone posizionate splendidamente, su due piani diversi e con colori diversi, anche se nella stessa situazione.

nice the snapshot from the daily life of the natives as digging and looking for gold. Excellent the light and the colour management of the image as brings out the details of the rocky area

La fièvre de l'or existe toujours....ils ne doivent pourtant pas trouver grand chose ici! Bonne composition.

Impressive scene, a very good picture here describing a story about people lives .
It must be an interesting country to visit.

So hard work,in incredibly difficult conditions. The humans saw us how small seems inside the mines. Beautiful work.
Have a nice evening,

Prospectors at work! excellent composition we can see what they're doing in the environment. A nice piece of image, excellently exposed, you have done well to control it to convey the real daily life here by paying attention to these particular chaps as central figs but still offering lots of the detail too. The overall colours are good as they stand out in the muddy colour nicely. This sort of reporting gives a strong accent of local flavour. Well done and thks for sharing.

j'aime la composition de cette photo avec ces deux hommes diagonalement opposés. Une belle capture avec une note très intéressante.

Great documentary, but also artistic photos in the series. Of the three that you post this I like best.

I like very much this full frame dedicated to the goldmine and its people. The two men are superbly placed in the frame, you created fine balance and a juxtaposition between them. I can't know for sure, but think they look tired and disappointed. Details and textures give us a very interesting story about the character of this site and the daily labour that occurs in it. The tonal range you've achieved is superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Encore une image sur cet enfer terrestre, un très bon reportage intéressant
Pour quelques Euros ces hommes sont prêts à se tuer à la tache

There is so much to know about mining and digging, be it sierra leone, liberia..senegal and other countries. its not just the diamond and the gold, other precious metals too. What can be seen quite often is children forced to be a part of labour, but not the case here, i would love to see the view of the entire hill..
quite a fresh photo, relief from blue skies and buildings..
nice one Ana

That work is really hard, they are working here without machines digging the mountain to find gold Ana
