This is the second one in the series of my shooting from a speeding train.
The beautiful landscapes engulfed me in a surreal sense of goodness which smelt the wet soil, the roughness of the winter and the warmth of the virginity of the village life...

This is another photo with vibrant colors from you! As I read that you took it from a speeding train, I won't say a word about the composition because there were not many choices left for you. I will just point out some positive facts that led to this beautiful result.
First, I would like to mention that you did a great job by selecting such a fast shutter speed to counteract the movement of the camera. At first sight I thought the sun was very strong but then again, the shadows are pretty soft which led me to the conclusion that you pumped up the ISO a bit. Am I wrong?
I'm glad you didn't place the palm tree exactly in the middle of the picture. That would have led to a boring image.
How can I improve this picture? Well, I don't like triangles in a picture. Like the ones formed in both lower corners by the uncultivated ground. I would have cloned them out and replaced them with fresh green rice or whatever plants they cultivate. Maybe even crop one cm from the left side of the picture. Maybe this helps.
However, the colors are very eye-catchy and the red clothes of the worker attracts attention immediately, which is exactly what you wanted. You did a fine job after all! Thanks for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

Beautiful composition of daily life. All the elements captured in good exposure and details. I like the candidness of the shot.
Closer shots of my birds are posted in MyTL and MyTN.

Hi AYAN Da,
From running train it's an amazing shot. It's very difficult to take such type of shots from train. The scene is very beautiful & contrast/sharpness is also very good (for shot something like this which is taken from a running train).

This is amazingly sharp considering that fact that you shot this from a moving train. The train gave you a perspective which would have been difficult taking from the ground. I especially like the fact atht the red clothing is near the lower third and left third compositional lines. The green vegetation is beautiful to look at but the people and the small amount of red clothing really "anchors" the composition for the viewer. Excellent shot!
