In spite of the hard living conditions depicted, you have created a very beautiful image. The smoke enhances the photo by creating a unique atmosphere. It also makes the viewer feel they participate in what is going on.
Best wishes and thank you for sharing

I like the atmosphere of the inside of the colorfull indian house, but I find your picture too dull, so I propose you my version in a WS.

This is for our western people incredible, but I think that these people are very satisfied, and make always eat for there children and man.
This is not in our western countries, the women work it same as the men.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This picture is all about the mood it captures...looking through the chulla smoke makes this different. I wouldn't bother about any changes as this works realistically good

This is a very good portrait, the woman at work is composed nicely in the frame to allow us to fully see what she is doing, while the smoke in the air gives a great sense of atmosphere of the place, The ladies bright colored clothing adds a lot to the scene too, especially against the soft pastel green behind.

It is true that womenfolks in India face a lot of hardships to do their daily chores.The chullah chakki is all that they have mostly in villages.We need to improve the living conditions for all in the rural areas.Keep posting.TFS.

I looked through your gallery and I found it very interesting, I really like this very well done picture of a woman in the kitchen.

this is well composed picture with good proportions and well planned elements in the frame. The woman sitting at the fire looks natural and the smoke around her face adds to the atmosphere very much.
Thanks for sharing

A nice slice of daily life shot with excellent subject matter linking the figure to the kitchen environ and the other elements. A well seen shot, the colours and detail are well preserved and this is a good realistic impression finely registered, an atmospheric mood out of your comfort zone and I love the engulfing smoke giving a sense of how busy the work is. Imho, bit more saturation and contrast will bring this to higher level, Great effort and tfs

Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa dimom.
Tezak nacin i mesto za pripremanje hrane.
Beautiful view of the moment, a good text ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated woman next to an open oven.
Good work, beautifully captured the moment with smoke.
Hard way and a place to prepare food.
All the best.

the lady looks tired already and the smoke filling the environment doesn't make the conditions of her work any better. You have retained the spontaneity, naturalness and meaning of the scene very effectively, we get a thorough idea about it. Depth, details and colours are superb even through the veil of smoke. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
