At a village near Siliguri a peasant woman is winnowing paddy.
To separate the rice grains from the husks, the rice is winnowed.
To winnow, workers toss rice grains on woven trays.
The heavy grains fall back into the tray and the husks blow away.
The rice can then be stored.

Very good action photo. I like the well focused flying paddy in very good light. Nicely done Saptak..

well managed light and shadow, good motion blurr of the grains,
I like the low POV, also the non symetrical composition

Beautiful clarity and colours. I like the capture as the grain is in the air and the intense expression on the face. Nice work.

The timing of this shot has been executed to perfection....when the husk was in mid-air. The light has been well handled...I can see both shaded & it up areas balanced well. Very well done!

Excellent framing of the image and perfectly exposed to catch the detail, its an interesting daily life shot in rural India. You really emphasise the subject with movement effect well frozen to render good effect. Well done.
