Photo taken of Yuanyang town in South Yuannan province. Most travelers pass through Yunnan Province without realizing that Yuanyang exists. Yuanyang is within the Autonomous Region of Hani and Yi Tribes. No special permit is required to enter. Yunnan is called the gem of ethnic minority people. One in three of the entire Yunnan Province population is minority, and of the 56 ethnic minorities in China, 25 live in Yunnan. However, with the influx of Han Chinese, the unique culture of the tribes is being affected.

a nice picture and a good note to go with it, bu i feel most of it was copied! ;)
the fields like this are very nice and ive always been attracted to pictures like this one. but for me there has to be a little bit more colours and interest in the picture. this one is largly monotone. but the note i feel makes up for that. nice shot and a good POV, you must have been up high!

This is the problem with picture like this on T.E., the small size of the image does not allow one to appreciate the scale of the terrace. Therefore, everything ended up squased and become a bunch of confused lines. This image is meant to be 24x36 inches on a wall. It also lacks a really strong left hand side foreground element which I understand if you have to take another step, we wont be seeing this photo :)
It may be tourist-free but there seems to be hordes of photographers.

Again some beautiful rice terraces...I really like the colour combination of green and pink/purple. Maybe the photo could have been a bit more neat. But the pattern remains unique! Thanks for sharing and greetings.. Léonie
