Rural scenery well collecterd , Farhat.
The two biker on the mud-trail looks fine on photo, inspite the movement while riding.
Clarity, DOF and beautiful green and blue tones, composed in harmony.

Interesantan tekst o selu sa opisom, lep pogled na ljude koji ide u kupovinu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i ljudi na biciklama, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
An interesting article about the village with a description, a nice view of the people who go shopping ...

An interesting documentary scene, these two men on this rural road are perfectly composed and the whole area has such nice colors. Very nice idea to compose with the road leading off like this, it makes such a great sense of depth, I feel I could step inside and ask one of these gentlemen the time!
Thanks as always

Hello Farhat, Nice scene from rural Bengal. Pleasant view of the bikers coming home but I am more interested in animals in water, what they are, water buffalos?

The two cyclists inject a sense of vitality into the otherwise rustic scene. You have captured them well clearly in motion against the dark green tones of the landscape. A fine composition and presentation.

This is a good documentary photo to support your note. Well done.
Kamilutka (8103) 2014-06-25 5:01
well captured two people on bikes negotiating the rural path among the fields. The framing works in here very well and the composition is well planned and combines the elements of landscape and people's every day life. I especially like the colors, which have been nicely saturated and the soft light.
Thanks for sharing

Fine candid of rural Bengal, time proven tradition of bicycle transport along a rural setting.

bicycle is my "primary source of transportation" too:) I like the naturalness of the scene you have captured, there's a great sense of movement and the two cyclists are very well placed in your frame. We see them within a pleasant and interesting context, significant about their daily life. Very good management of light and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Nice scene, excellent clarity and fine details.

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed this series is coming to an end, I've really enjoyed seeing the every day goings-on through the eyes and lens of a local. You've provided us with an insiders perspective, and it's a pleasure to understand the differences in culture and surroundings.
A common scene, but one that tells a small story of the daily life aspect. A fine way to wrap up the theme. Enjoy the day ahead. All the best.

nice the snapshot with the moving two natives with their bycicles on the earthy rural road of Birbhum.I like the created depth with the perspective to lead-in the eye on the far end of the scene and on the house on the backdrop of it.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Elle a un aspect très quotidien pour ces gens. J'aime l'effet de la poussière soulevée par les roues des bicyclettes.
photographer_sg (4410) 2014-07-03 11:08
this is a fine composition showing the peaceful surroundings of rural Bengal. Beautiful colours and the two cyclists with the road in front gives good dynamism to the picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new day.

A magnificent composition, full of charm with the beautiful countryside, the road gives a good perspective to the picture, the two cyclists get a nice vital touch to the composition.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Excellent done. I love it.
Have a happy day.
