Here the protagonist is the sugar, it must be stirred on a bowl with some water on a soft fire, in that way it melt and change color for a delicious brown one, the sugar syrup
This combination of sugar and water is the foundation of many candy recipes, including hard candies and soft candies like caramels
That’s what the woman was doing, showing me the way they work, I asked permission for a photo, she accepted without problem and smiling, turned her face to her right

This one is a tiny bit over-sharpened but composition is good. I like the motion blur of the liquid being stirred. Excellent color and lighting. The brush on the table adds authenticity. Nice warm colors that contrast well against the blue grey bowl. Tfs!

I always like to test a local food&drinks. And I also like to know a preparation process. Good presentation of daily life in Unknown village ))
I don't forget. I will send to you my scans some later. Sorry...

marvelous picture of the working woman, melting suger.
Your series of people photos, in general, is an evidence of your skillful work: not every photographer has the ability and know-how to take pic.s of people, I admit to this disadventage.
Big smile you got while takling her photo.

Another great shot and expressive crop, it's the combination of well balanced colors, light, the pot with melting sugar and the smiling face that caught attentions. Nice snapshot with excellent details and a lively human presence gives a nice touch to the image. You have posted an exquisite work as usual.

The woman turning her face like this while beaming a big smile looks brilliant, you and she both know your composition very well :) I also love that you crated this foreground focusing so well on the womans craft.
Another great addition to the series.

En México, les gusta "cajeta," un dulce de leche de cabra, y esta foto me hace pensar en cajeta. Pero la cazuela de este mujer -- tan grande y fabuloso!
Pase un buen día, y fin de semana, profesora mía!

Well spotted and another slice of life pleasing on the eyes where there is enough interest to hold attention in. A close picture depicting the day-to-day activity
of the woman.with the big cooking utensil pulling the attention in, indeed it's an effective eye popper there. It's a harmonious shot which gives so much for the viewer to absorb and nicely balanced. Well done, TFS

Una maravillosa composicion, con esta bonita escena de la vida cotidiana, en este caso fabricando de forma artesanal un rico caramelo. La rudimentaria mesa que vemos detras y el tronco del arbol, son un buen complemento a la imagen y dan unas bonitas texturas.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Buen trabajo. Me gusta
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

The molten sugar looks very yummy. I like the expression on her face. It looks like the people of Cambodia are natural-born models!

Une scène intéressante
Certes la femme sourit mais le fait qu'elle a tourné la tête on peut penser qu'elle exerce un travail pénible compte tenu de cette expression particulière
En ce qui concerne une personne qui travaille, il faut toujours demander de continuer à travailler naturellement sans regarder la caméra

As the sugra syrup is being sirred to the point of high viscosity & density, I like the details which you have brought out in this picture...

your note makes the scene more intriguing as it's remarkable that the lady first gave you permission to photograph her and then shyly looked away. I like very much the way you composed this portrait in action, there's balance, context and interest in the whole of the frame and we can have a look straight into the pot with the syrup. Again, you've illuminated the scene most aptly and captured stunningly natural textures and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
