During the peak winter season the winnowing is a common scene alongside the village roads...here the women are separating the husk from the paddy to extract rice...a typical village scene

Hello Ayan. An exotic motive. You caught it with the camera skillfully. Beautifully, informatively and worth seeing. A good picture for TE. Best regards, Wolfgang.

such a nice scene, I esp. like how we can see the movement of the rice. But it must be hard work, too..

This is a very good photograph and an excellent capture of everyday life in West Bengal. The motion of the rice being processed is very interesting. You are trying things that many photographers don't even attempt. You have a knack for finding scenes that are not static and have a sense of movement. Keep on experimenting with this and try different techniques of capturing motion. This is an excellent peek into this area. Good job!

This is a very interesting shot and an excellent example of daily life in your country. I like the feeling of movement. Also the two chickens at the bootom are a good detail.
Greetings from Greece

Great image with wonderful colours, in your pictures the day life job seems an art work, and maybe it is so, thank you

The idea is good & execution well done. The 'jumping' paddy in the middle is actually the key. Left side could be cropped IMO. Do I see some oversharpening & some vignettes in the sky? Nice work otherwise.

Interesting daily life scene and it is to be well appreciated that the women are fully involved in their work, which resulted in this spontaneous photo.
The blurred object in the center of your shot should not be welcome in other circumstances, but here it works well illustrating speed of their movements.
