I had posted an image of these women working in the field. When they noticed I was taking pictures, they were ready to pose for me. It was a nice break for them from hard work. First, they thought I was from a press and a bit hesitant. They were very happy when I gave 500 rupees to split among them. They deserve something for working hard in the hot sun.

very beautiful these workwomen, I liked the contrst betweem them and their colored clothes and the green field around. nice framing and light, sharpness is not so special how your previous works, but this doesn't spoil your work.

It is a good idea to honor these brave women, that work so hard, with self-abnegation. The group portrait very well consists. The light and the colors are excellent. A little of neatness is missing. Bravo.
Have a nice day

happy snapshot with the five women to look at your lens so cute,making a break from their work.A lovely reportage shot fro the fields of Sholingar.

Nice scene and surroundings, with beautiful light and colours. You can sharpen some more I think... i done a WS and difference is visible... from the original RAW file you can adjust sharpness better than what i have done!

Good balance compo of rural scene, a strong image of interesting characters
that demand attention in lovely setting and vibrant colors. Love their positive body
language – smiles, you have established good connection being the strongest element
of this picture. Nevertheless I feel it can benefit with a little more sharpness. Great shot
josepmarin (58359) 2011-08-29 3:55
This scene is very happy and funny, I like the attitude of these women who stop their work in the field in order to pose for the photographer, with a lot of sharm and spontaneity.
Their clothes of vivid colors create a nice contrast with the green tones of the grass, in a luminous and attractive composition.

Another lovely shot from Tamil Nadu. You were gracious to give them the time and the money. On the hot day of June 10 (actually that's my birthday), you also gave them a respite from the back breaking farm work. Working in a straight line, they seem to have just stood up and smiled!

Very beautiful photo, people is such an interesting subject and I noticed that in India people smiles when noticing the photo
And these women are happy to rest some moments, to look at your camera and to have some extra money
Congrats, well done tfs
I also love chapatis and in Buenos Aires are some good Indian restaurants

What a beautiful note to accompany a beautiful image. I am no good at capturing people like this, as I find most spot the camera and instantly turn away. Its so pleasing that these women were happy to pose for you to allow you to create such a colourful and beautiful scene. That it is so obviously in their workplace makes it even more special as a daily life capture.
Many thanks for sharing
