Took at Matamata (south tunisia) in a troglodyte house.
This mother was using a mill to make flour for her bread, there is picture of her son eating this delicious bread.
I tried to open the shutter a little while to give a motion effect to the mill.

Hi Samy, a lovely photograph with amazingly bright balanced colours for a picture taken underground.
I would only suggest you sharpen it a little bit. I played with your photo and sharped the upper - stable - part of the body (head and shoulders) and it came out pretty well. I decided not to post a workshop because I really didn't do anything besides sharpening, just wanted to check if it's worth to suggest you to do that.
The mill came out really cool :)

Samy, ce n'était pas facile de donner du mouvement à la meule et à la main sans rendre flou le visage de la femme. Le résultat est excellent. J'aime cette composition avec la contre-plongée. Les couleurs sont magnifiques.
