Villagers are looking in a hurry to reach their home after working full day in the city.
They are hard workers mainly daily wagers working as a Painter or general labor in the City. They earn around Rs. 150.00 per day. Their job starts around 9:00 a.m. so they generally leave their home by 7:30 a.m. and returns after 05:00-05:30 p.m.
They all have very similarities like they have emptied tiffin boxes, cycles and all have hurry to reach their home that is at-least 2 Kms. and more from here.

I really love the compo: the same for colour and light.
The only note is for the cows on the left side: you could try to keep out;)
See you soon...

Wonderful compo and atmosphere. The men, their bikes and their clothes make a nice pattern and the trees and the road, so horizontal, result great visually. Then there is the cow, something that is a must on every Indian cliché.
Congratulations, it's very good.
Somehow I sense much more a morning mood than an evening mood...

Beautiful perspective. The light is just too good and so are the colours.
Wonderful work overall. I agree with Paolo on keeping the cow out of the frame.

very well captured daily life shot of the villagers goin' home from work. The pov is very good and the diagonal perspective works perfectly. Like late afternoon's warm light. Well done!
Tfs and best wishes.

At long last! The perspective is good, but a little bother about the PP especially between the cyclists...can't figure out! Good work otherwise

Interesting view of daily life. I like your composition with the workers coming back home.
It's a nice composition.

At first I didn't like the trees dividing the image in two, but the positioning of the people biking from one side to the other made it work for me. You have capture a very nice quality of light. Well seen and capture,

I can't take my eye from these cyclists. Great symmetry in them . And the different colours are interesting .A typical village view. I appreciate your eyes to note this view and bring it to us. TFS

Interesting view of daily life.A very good composition and atmosphere.Great colours,nice POV.

Dear Rakesh, you seem to have a highly developed sense to pick up very interesting patterns seen around you which others might not notice. When I add to it your control over the medium of photography, the sum total makes you a special being. All of your pictures have a personal stamp of you over them. This cultivation of individuality in your photographs is no mean achievement. Congrets.

Words will not be enough to describe it.

Very intresting photo and theme - but check the workshop, sometimes it's nice to clear unnecessary elements of the composition because the're disturbing perception of photo :)
