A nomadic mom is boiling goat's milk to make butter. Her daily life starts milking goats and sheeps in the morning. She has two kids to take care of. Since this area is very high(4,700m)and very cold at night, her family lives in a small hut, digged ground. Life is very tough but she looked happy with her children.

Like your previous post, you choose here also a good post-processing to create the right atmopshere with a light (which was maybe not here). But the most interesting here is the expression of the boy looking at the mother and the other boy. Fascinating glance on them ...

Waw.... this is fascinating.The look of the boy towards the mother is perhaps the most striking point in this whole composition.This is a real classic shot.Adding to my favourite list straightway.

Superb painterly portrait drawn with great sensitivity.

The success of a shot is a function of the richness of its details, some say.
In this respect, that's a powerful shot: Not only in terms of the details of the location but also the harmony of colours, especially the co-existence of black & white & orange, and finally the metallic sharpness provided by the tea pot.
The only suggestion I would make would be to slightly enlarge the frame and use a higher aperture to increase the DOF.

Another your great photo.Scenes from daily life, often poignant, give the sense of complexity of the world we live in.The gaze of the child at the right is very funny.Excellent!

a very close and personal shot reflecting the ageold bond between mother n child.
lovely warm tones .. i especially love the light that passes thru the fumes rising from the milk pot.
also love the drama chemistry involved in the shot, as if the child who's in his mother's lap is in heaven while the less fortuante one looks on .. his eyes full with envy (and hope for his turn)

Nice feeling to this one! Very well done, with limited light. The fire looks great as do all the other pots and kettles. And the looks on the faces of the two children are wonderful. A lovely composition. To me, this is a classic! kind regards,

I've just discovered your interesting gallery and the choice was difficult :)
It's a beautiful picture well exposed, specially considering the low light condition...
The feeling of tenderness is well conveyed here! The disposition of the utensils created an interesting diagonal. The flames, the rays of light added a sense of warmth.

very good light and you find a good composition to say a complete and effective story of their life.
i like the line of pots on fire and place of mother but i think the point of your photo is kind of seeing of left kid to his mother
