The Sitabari area near Shahabad of Baran District is famous for its local tribe "Saharia." You can see two Saharia ladies doing their daily job of collecting wood for fuel for their own use and also for sell to local merchants.
This area is famous for rich forest but nowadays forests are shrinking as the population and their urban interference are increasing. Some years earlier, it was very easy to listen Lion's roaring here, but now they are no more here. This area is also well known for its relevance with Ramayana (the Holy book of Hindus).

very well captured and greatly framed shot of a pleasant atmosphere. What really makes this shot very nice, is the fantastic filtering side-light, which is very well controlled by you. Good work!
Tfs and have a nice day!

Hello Rakesh -
Excellent image! Beautiful light highlighting the forest lands but the inclusion of the two colorful women really adds to the impact of this image. Exposure looks to be spot on, excellent DOF, and sharpness. Well done!
Thanks for sharing

I like these types of photos showing daily life, a very good image although to make it timeless you could have cropped out the pylon poles which give away the time.
A very good photo to view.

Wow! What a wonderful photo! Almost a bit stunning... You played much cleverly with the light, the trees and those women and made a fabulous compo. The women give and life and a very nice color contrast.
Very well done!
For the little I saw so far, your portfolio is much interesting, so let me congratulate you for that.
Thank you also for letting me know that Rajasthan isn't only about arid lands.

Nice shot. Two women dressed in bright colours make nice contrast to the surrounding colours of nature. Thanks to them, we can see how big (and obviously old, too) these trees are.
I like the horizontal line of the fence that works as counterbalance to the predominantly vertical trunk lines.
edal (6804) 2007-05-04 16:29
You amase me again with unknown facts about nature and life in your great country. I like the quality of the photo too - vivid colors andd sharpnes are excellent.
Endy (1025) 2007-05-27 23:12
Nice shot Rakesh!
I think the inclusion of the women is a excellent idea because they add a reference point in your picture for the trees and the depth of field. The warm colors are also very well captured and offers a beautiful contrast with the green background.

good photo, on the one hand tribal collecting wood for fire but in the background one can also see electric lines of modern age.
