Done well the daily life photo on the narrow, yet colorful road.
The heavy-loaded vhicle is an eyes catching item, but i looks elsewher on the surrounding, which very well shown to the smallest details on photo.

Geia sou Laurent,
a really surprising photo with the tractor to be covered with this way its carriage,from straw.
I like the good reportage shot as the excellent light and the colour management of the scene.

unusual vehicle on the country sandy small street. Good reportage about the daily life in Kambodia. Well photo-job.
Have a nice evening.

Travelling by bus in Cambodia is not always a nice experience, even the traffic of Phnom Penh is hair-raising, But watching an overloaded vehicle such as this through the safety of a computer is quite amusing. As always this photo has superb colours and sharpness and it's amusing to judge just from the way they are "protecting" their heads that this could be nowhere but Cambodia. At least I can't remember seeing that kind of headgear anywhere else.

This catches the eye even from a distant, what a show of overwhelming 'giant bushy hairs' we have here, A wonderful rural scene of a real day-to-day activity observed first hand abound of some vivid colours to uplift this shot and enough detail around the whole depth with lovely touch soothing green colour. Sounds like you've had some amazing experiences there and this picture represents just one of those moments. Splendid catch, TFS

Texture and shape of that hay load is quite impressive. Also passengers with those scarves add an effect of surprise. Interesting scene. Motorcyclettes seem to be very popular method of transport over there.

And they are really experts on loading them. I wonder how they can keep all that straw on the little tractor. A good daily scene, you captured them very well with a nice soft light.

If I were to drive that vehicle, I would continuously be worried and looking over my shoulder to check whether I hadn't lost anything. Great capture with a fine sunlight and pleasant colours.

I like these reports of daily life. On one side very apparent. (Farmer returning with the harvest.) But in a surrounding that differs a lot of our own rural country.

Beautiful shot of the rural scene from Cambodia.Nice colors and sharpness.Excellent POV.TFS.

100 % en accord avec toi sur le plan de la conduite dans ce genre de pays.Personnellement je ne prendrais pas le risque.Tu as certainement eu la même impression en Inde je suppose.Mais en tant que spectateur c'est sublime.J'ai toujours été sidéré par ce genre de scène en Inde mais aussi au Viet Nam ou au Laos.
Très belle prise de vue,avec l'esprit "reportage".

you came across a very attractive scene and managed to capture it effectively and in an interesting context too. The load is very imposing with its shape, dimensions and texture, it really dominates the tight frame. The truck looks like a float with the four people sitting symmetrically at its front:) It's fascinating that we can't see any of the people's faces. An intriguing slice of life. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

It sure is loaded! I recall uploading a shot of a snmall motorcycle dragging a huge pile of firewood. http://www.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=7&p=96148
A superb daily life scene from Cambodia with good sharpness and excellent framing and saturation. The straw yellow hay contrasts nicely against the blue sky. Tfs!
