Tea plucking is an arduous and strenuous job which is mostly done by women at hilly regions of India. Here, the process of weighing of the tea leaves and then packing them in gunny bags is being done for transportation to the tea factories.
Do you notice how the men are just standing while the women are doing all the hard work? This is not to forget that this process is happening after these women have spent the entire day plucking the leaves and putting them in the basket at their back.
I apologise for the lack of clarity. This was taken while the vehicle in which I was sitting was on the move down the valley.

An interesting daily life composition that more than compensates for the slight lack of clarity due in part to your own movement and the difficult lighting conditions. I wonder if European tea drinkers are aware of the time and effort that goes into harvesting the leaves for their daily cuppa?

nice the snapshot from the daily life of the natives as we can see in the scene the process of weighing of the tea leafs before transported to the tea factories.
A good reportage shot from the area.

Une scène de la vie quotidienne évoquant les travaux difficiles. Une image prise sur le vif et sans maniérisme.
Très bonne journée.

Interesting scene from daily life.
I like frame and colours.
Difficult light, strong sharpness.

A simple pic showing the hard work of the workers in tea garden. The pic is taken opposite the sunlight. Needs to be improved.
Nice effort to show the hard work.

Nice daily life photo from India. You have captured the group of tea pluckers from excellent viewpoint. Only the sky is slightly over exposed. But the overall arrangement is very good.

We see your second picture of these group working women and quiet men, here in Belgium is everything vice versa.
You chose a nice angle, with perspective and depth image.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
