The crop of hard work.
It was like the whole village gathered together here on the public courtyard to bring in the crop, threshing it, winnowing and putting it into sacks.
Afterwards this crop goes to the mill to be peeled and the farmer buys his peeled rice back again for his own use, no, they don't eat unpeeled cooked rice here, never seen it.
She was in the middle of all attention while the chaff was flying around, I had to keep my mouth shut and clean my camera afterwards from dust :)).

I must say, I just love your POV here, Henk. You come up with these images that plunge us right into that world, that activity.
A very good one indeed.

Hallo beste vriend,
Wat u uit dit fantastisch foto toestel toverd is precies of iedereen kiest positie voor u, en die kleuren altijd, ik kijk zeer regelmatig, maar de tijd ontbreek om te raten, wat een grote mijnheer bent U, laat al die franse donjoans maar eens lekker ruiken aan uw fantastisch werk, wie doet het u na?
Floydian (30970) 2006-08-28 5:04
Hoe mooi in beeld gebracht om het kaf te scheiden. Diepe kleursetting die we van jou gewend zijn.
Mooi gebracht in een mooie pov met de vrouw kijken in de achtergrond.

I'm really impressed by the quality and the artistic way you share those moments of daily life. Always an amazing POV that creates a lot of dynamism and superb colors...
Gerrit (50768) 2006-08-28 5:29
mooie foto van dit harde werk dat lijkt op het oude dorsen van graan zoals dat hier een eeuw geleden geschiedde.
goede samenstelling met de zakken op de achtergrond.

Busy for these days, I really missed your posts. Let me come back with this one. Lovely pov with wonderful colours as always. I must say that these kinds of action packed daily life captures are really wonderful and you have so many of them in your gallery,
jhm (142808) 2006-08-28 6:51
Verdorie u slaagt er opnieuw in om die kleuren zo goud geel te houden, en de diepte scherpte op honderd percent te houden, en zoals gebruikelijk de mannen zullen het graan wel verkopen als de vrouwen het maar schoonmaken, men kan hier het kaft van het koren scheiden, en dat is straf!

Ja inderdaad weer een fantastische foto Henk.
en de pov is weer geweldig, de kleuren ouderwets, daar wil ik helemaal al niet meer met u over praten, want dat is altijd goed bij U. Hele mooie samenstelling, goed werk.
erdna (5711) 2006-08-28 11:08
Woweeeee! This photo makes me feel like I am right there beside her. I might start sneezing soon. A terrific point of view and good use of your medium tele.

t0mmm1 (5440) 2006-08-28 12:02
beautiful moment. This must be a very difficult work. Wonderful detail of the daily life... but it could be scheduled also in the ceremony category I guess ;)) Wonderful shot!
Have a nice day,

I can only thank you for bringing those intricate practises of India in to the light of the world which people of India dont bring about themselves...
The capture is excuisite and describes a lot about your interest and human values and human practises which they do for a living and also decribes volumes of your spiritual inclination..
HE, WHO VALUES HUMAN BEHAVIOUR..IS ACTAUALLY GIVEN THE PLACE OF GOD IN THIS COUNTRY...YOU HAD LOTS OF OTHER THINGS TO CAPTURE AND BRING TO LIGHT, BUT YOU CHOSE THIS SMALL TIME VILLAGE AND A VERY SMALL TIME HUMAN OCCUPATION TO HIGHLIGHT..WHICH HAS TO BE APPRECIATED BY ME AS A PROUD INDIAN......
THANKS FOR THE TIME WHICH YOU TOOK TO TAKE THIS PIC,,THANKS FOR THE THOUGHT PROCESS YOU WERE IN AT THE YOU TOOK THIS PIC AND THANKS FOR THE VALUE YOU HAVE GIVEN TO INDIA BY COMING HERE AND CLICKING THE VERY BASIC INDIAN LIFESTYLE RIDING ON A BIKE ON INDIAN ZIGZAG STRECTCHES AND BEING OURS..
YOU ARE MORE INDIAN THAN 99 PERCENT OF INDIANS THEMSELVES..

Great photo taken for a very nice POV. I like to watch the way this woman in winnowing the rice. I wonder what is the other lday doing there staring at her. Her coloured clothes brings extra interest to your photo.
I really imagine that your camera needed a good 'bath' after this shot :)

Well seen and captured.
Angelillo (9374) 2006-08-29 3:20
Extraordinart timing fot his shot, that let us to see the rice grain flying to the ground. Very well composed, the intense colours as usual in your shots, and a POV very interesting. It's not only a good documentary of indian life and work, but it's too a picture very very beautiful. TFS. Regards,
tcht (7565) 2006-08-29 6:14
Very good juxtaposition of the two. Green & red are nice contrasting colors. Good frozen rice in air shows the dynamics and well focused on her arm muscles showing the work. Love it. TFS.
lukas (2067) 2006-08-29 6:49
Beste Henk, deze foto laat zien hoe het kaf van het koren kan gescheiden worden, ook in fotografie :-))
Izobretenik (1268) 2006-08-30 6:08
This one is great too. Thanks for the link within the second upload about harvest.
The closer framing was maybe better for me, because I love to see faces in pictures. And the closest you get, the best you have a key to people's feelings. Anyway, that's a great journalistic shot for me.
ramesh_lalwani (3211) 2006-08-31 2:23
nice market scene with women at work.yes atmosphere is quite dusty in this envoirnment.TFS
thaprem (2554) 2006-08-31 22:54
Wht a POV!...
Just transporting where your camera was!...
Particularly i this I like the acton just outside your lens!.
Yeah..We eat peeled rice mostly..But in some few, rare delicacies they would be used straight as "Nelmani" - unpeeled rice... If I remember Right.
Most emnjoyable encounters.
rahul__rahul__ (2250) 2006-09-04 11:36
nice picture, I like the colors and action in this with the flying crop. The posture of the lady in the background is good as well.
chaity (1539) 2006-09-13 21:48
