I loved the curve of this street, and hoped someone would grace my image with their appearance. She did!
This was taken in a small town surrounded by rice paddies.

Nice picture of daily life.
I like your POV and the street turning on the back.
Nice and elegant position of the woman.
Nice work !

I like the curve too, and also the feeling of reality, that you are showing us a not touristic spot but a everyday street. Pitty the sky. Take care Christina.

this lovely street seems to have experienced the moonsoon effect, I like the wet texture or the groung and the grey color. This worker is nicely placed on your frame.

superb texture and tone and mood Christina. Just a beautiful picture in all those aspects. Lovely, limited color palette too. GREAT.

good timing, I like the presenc of this woman, her hat and the way she walks. the street looks very old, and the details of the torn posters are very good.

A great photo of a very interesting place...not the China of temples, rice paddies, but of kind of architecture we rarely see in pictures from this country. And the woman makes a good completion of the image of real life there.

Serwus Christina !
Extraordinary composition. I also love the curve of the street, and also this dynamic point of view with this worker passing by. Details are great here.
Very best regards,

Hi Christina, A nicely captured picture with the wet stone way leads to the distance away. The old styled buildings are well shown their ages. A well capture of the lady to show the style of this town. A nicely taken picture.

I like the mood of this shot.
This mysterious woman (because we don't see her face) walking in this empty street...
Maybe you can crop the top to have a 3/2 format.
The woman is well placed in the compo, well done.

Wonderful shot Christina!
the street curve is really beautiful and you captured very well that grey alley.
also the farmer was well captured, with his strange hat.
good light and POV too.

Excellent shot Christina. The perspective is very good with the street curving to the centre of the image. I love these ancient houses. Very well done!

Th,s pictures has so many assets that I am afraid to forget some when counting.
The moody light, the gray and wet road, the curved alley, the fact that she was caught at the very right place, her hat down to her chini the grass on the road, the white sky, the torn red ad on the door, the way I can see her walking ,the motion of her legs and arm.
Great picture in one word.. If I were you I would send it to a competition, say NG Traveler in August for instance..
Take care - Izzet Keribar

Patience is a virtue, and it paid off for you here, Christina. I am glad she did not look up, it would have spoilt the moment.

I like the curve in the street too, as well as the traditioanl architecture which I guess is in the process of being destoyed. Maybe a bit of a tilt, and eliminating the white sky would make it even better.
bfly (5775) 2005-09-12 9:12
I hope (and I see :) that you had a wonderfull holiday..
beautiful moment and place..like AmiBe, I also think it could be cropped on top to minimize the white sky..
all the best :)

The curved road adds an air of mystery - Where does it go - where has she come from. Faceless adding to the mystery. Nice one!

she is shy, so she hide her face.

Interesante fotografía, la composición tiene gran profundidad y los colores suaves y compensados aportan un ligero aire dramático a la escena, buen trabajo.

This is an amazingly beautiful picture of daily life of Chinese. The building itself and the road are all unique. I love it. A lot of things going on inside my mind about this picture that I could not really describe well. Very well done Christina. Sothy
