~ Working Lady ~
She may be too young for such performance... She is weaving cloths in a hand loom...
Photo captured at Islampur. Many people of this small town are do this for bread and butter... Tough light (low) condition inside this room making photography almost impossibly with the speedy and rhythmic working action of her...
Here is the result on your screen... I am sorry about the photo quality, but I can't resist myself to posting this working moment of this yet-to-become-lady...

Very nice capture of the every day working moments. I like the colors and the attitude of the young woman. Well seen, have a fine weekend.

The loom makes an apt frame for the lady weaver and her partner. I like her pose and expression and the sense of motion. Good light and colours. No problems with the technical quality, the atmosphere is superb.

The photo quality is perfect seen the adverse conditions; the lady is well framed, looking precisely at her work, the man is more disturbing, looking straight at me and so I can't look at the rest of the photo.

A great return to a familiar theme. The expression on the workers' faces here is very good. It suggests a kind of interaction between the two of them. I also like how they are framed within the frame, with all those extra lines and wires running across. Great colourful scene, really well captured.
Thanks for sharing & have a fine weekend.

...I think hand loom is now practiced in a few parts of the world, I agree with you that the girl is too young to work, excellent reportage on this old technique almost lost ....

a very fine and interesting portrait of the young girl working on the loom. The slight diagonals with which you've framed her offer wonderful and effective dynamism that enlivens the scene and allows us to comprehend the dynamism of her movements. I like very much how she stands out against the cold and moody backdrop while framed by the warm and bright colours of the loom. Although absorbed in her work and tired, she has a captivating subtle smile and looks gracious. The man behind her makes us appreciate her elegance even more. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

The strong golden color of the material makes the picture really attractive! Very good details, captured with excellent sharpness! Great composition!

despite the obvious toils of the lady she retains an air of dignity and charm.
The image is sharp and very clear despite the difficult light.Well done indeed.

Un très joli moment très bien mis en image. La photo est de qualité très respectable et très bien composée avec la belle jeune fille souriante...qui semble surveillée par l'homme en arrière plan. Très belles couleurs également.

lovely capture of the pretty girl at work. I like the yellow material in the foreground. You caught an interesting contrast between the young girl and the old man siting behind.
Very well done,

An excellent scene of a proud teacher (or father ?) and the confident pupil. You always amaze with superb timing.
Great details in difficult light-situation. Very good composition and colours.

I don't think the quality of your pic is poor. On the contrary ! Light conditions were difficult but you managed a nice lighting on the face of these two persons. Nice combination of yellow and blue tones. Another great picture at work.
Thanks for sharing,

This is an excellent photo which makes me think of a Bollywood movie, where the starlets are usually "too beautiful" to be hard working and poor. You have framed this pretty young woman perfectly with the details of the loom, and the yellow foreground contrasts very nicely with her green clothes and the blue wall.
I love this shot.
