Great shot, although the farmers look poor, do they live in those improvised houses? I always get emotional when I see people who work so hard to earn their bred. Great composition, especially this front green part and great framing.

une ferme haute en couleurs, le toit avec toute ces pierres donne bien l'aspect fragile de la construction, les couleurs sont superbes

Heavy saturated colours here. But it works.
It gives the place a strange mix of aesthatics and decay.

very well captured daily life shot of a great perspective. The warm light is great and the colours are nice and well saturated. I like that you placed the house and the farmers on the top of the frame, leaving more space for the green fg. than for the sky. Well done! Tfs and best wishes.

Olá Rakesh, the scene is interesting and the colors are attractive and well saturated. Although the grass makes a nice foreground, I think this photo would be more effective in a closer approach of the scene. Love the atmosphere!

A good compo. keeping the young green crop field in the FG...the colours in the BG does look a bit saturated, but shows the daily life well. You've got good light here. But maybe it could have been better if you took a closer view with the two men forming the left of the frame...just a thought

Again rural life and again rich in colours and a vivid explanation of working people life.

Maybe it isn't much as a compo, mainly because it lacks depth and it has so much details to look at, but it is very pleasant to look and it has a very nice and vivid mood of "enjoying a deserved relaxing time at the end of a working day".
You did well including all that green, as it results very well colour wise and gives context.
TFS, Regards, José.

Beautiful framing including the large part of green, Rakesh! I like the strong contrast of colours. The subject is very interesting.

Wonderful colors for this photo.The sunset light is very nice too.Maybe it would be better if we could see a little bit more sky.Thanks for sharing.

there are a few things which I must utter maintaining the motto of this site so that you can thrive to become a better photographer; hope you accept it sportingly :)
the border always doesn't look good and one has to think & re-think over application of borders in a photo- it could make or break (as is the case here)
nice light for the shoot which I must encourage...
colors look good though the naturality of the colors are not beyond doubt
too much of foreground grassland distracts the sight off the colorful point of view...
had there been bit more of the sky to balance the grasslanf, then the image would have fared better...
