Tenganan Village, is one of unique villages in Bali
Many of them make a living from Woven clothing or plaiting mats. What make them unique is the ones who stay in the village are the original families from hundreds years ago. If one married to someone from another village, they could not stay there, they have to live at another village.
I hope you like it, thanks

Great shot Cessy!!
the Pov was excellent, and we can see the smoke that go up on the background, and a good light and focus on the village.
the man is very well captured.
thanks also for the interesting note.
SoupDragon (652) 2005-05-27 4:39
There is so much atmosphere in this shot, its great. The colour balance is also intriguing. The details too, are wonderful; the mist, the yellow flowering bush, the piles of wood, AND, the bird!
thpfister (240) 2005-05-27 4:40
Early Bird Cessy,
waking up early is worth it and it is honoured in this case with a beautiful pic. Great!
bantonbuju (51815) 2005-05-27 4:41
a gascinating shot - a quiet street ending up in the forest, lovely shot; i like it a lot;
even a small hen adds great value to this photo!
have a nice day, jerzy
mitternacht (1839) 2005-05-27 4:41
Beautiful, very calm picture. I'm very easily affected by this sort of rural romanticism, longing for the "simple" life.
I love the tones here, I was surprised that this wasn't a slide, but actually from a digital camera. The blue haze over the green trees and the shadows at the front combined with the deatiled, yet silhouette-like depiction of the man. It's very well composed and captured.
Thank you for sharing,
maciekda (19895) 2005-05-27 4:42
beautiful image Cessy, the light and that fog are splendid. the composition is very nice as well - all lines lead us to that man in the middle and the chicken at the bottom makes the shot even better. very nice photo
marieaude (1196) 2005-05-27 4:45
Very nice photo with morning fog. I like it really. Good shot of this man carrying wood. Thanks
Zepi (22848) 2005-05-27 4:47
J'adore cette scène!
Magnifiques couleurs,j'adore cette fumée au loin et cette homme chargé comme une mule!
ça file tout droit dans mes favoris!
summersun (4978) 2005-05-27 5:05
very nice image of that man carrying heavy pieces of wood on his bag, heading to the mysterious forest. I like the atmosphere given by the fog and the shades here. the chick in the corner is a plus.
Furachan (0) 2005-05-27 5:29
WHOA! Cessy, this image stopped me in my tracks! The dark foreground leading up to the slowly moving man and then on to the brilliant goggy blue greens beyond that...It's just a great photo, no ifs or buts. Cheers, Francis
PixelTerror (0) 2005-05-27 5:39
A beautiful shot you show us today, the mist all around creates a fine atmosphere on you photo, there is a nice depth and the man brings some animation as well as confirmation of the traditional character of the village.
Have a nice day,
Coyotyto (1305) 2005-05-27 5:54
Wow Cessy !!
Great one !! The colours and the light are excellent. I like the details, and that smoke that softens the colours and makes the man contrasting better.
I really like the composition, and that small 'chicken' fits perfectly there !! (I know it's smthg else, but i don't know the name :o))
This one goes straight to my favourites !
Thanks a lot, cheers,
mukesh (446) 2005-05-27 5:55
It is a wonderful picture Cessy. Very well composed and you have caught the early morning mood of a village so well. The elements like the man's form and posture, the yellow flowers, the smoke, the bird in the foreground all are so well adding to the feel of the picture. It is surely a great work.
bnallama (3763) 2005-05-27 6:02
I can feel the calmness and the freshness of the moment. Nice one.
jarosz0 (517) 2005-05-27 6:15
Great image.Timing, composition and exposure are perfect. And the yellow flowers which give more life into this moody photo
Mafo (1339) 2005-05-27 6:30
Nice photo Cessy!
Nice presentation of daily life, nice composition with flowers, nice colors!
Manu1 (170) 2005-05-27 6:31
Excellent composition Cessy...beautiful definition and tones, well done and great to see your images here also.
Modacolor51 (1309) 2005-05-27 7:45
sehr schon das lıcht hat mır sehr gefallen YILMAZ
bettstetter (199) 2005-05-27 8:59
Excellent composition, Cessy! Thanks for sharing.
nwoehnl (122) 2005-05-27 9:28
Hi Cessy. Another masterpiece from Bali in terms of composition and mood conveyed. Very good scene of the guy walking along the village road, and beautiful misty setting in the background. I like it.
gringofil (0) 2005-05-27 9:41
Simply wonderful. The misty atmosphere combined with your excellent composition (and a great subject to boot) has created an outstanding image. Usually I would like to have the man walking towards the camera and not away, but in this instance it works for me just as it is. Excellent work.
naxius (16685) 2005-05-27 9:57
Wow!!! Tres belle scene, vraiment une reussite.
J'aime cette ambiance, la fumee, cet homme de dos et bien charge.
C'est une splendeur.
Bravo x 1000...
weswang (18223) 2005-05-27 10:37
Hi Cessy, I almost feel that I am following the guy walking on the isle. Very nice capture of the daily life scene in the small village. The fog in the background brings up many imaginations. A chicken on the road in the foreground is a bonus. The lighting condition is ideal, which bright up in the middle of the picture. An excellent composition and an excellent picture.
cam (9043) 2005-05-27 19:31
What a beautiful place at a perfect time.
Mist is always pleasant to me,it creates a mood that feels in harmony with me,so calm, so soft,so warm.A little bit outside of time.
Good compo.helped by the rooster.
singuanti (15250) 2005-05-27 22:12
Hi Cessy, you appeared to have a great time in Indonesia because every shot has been more stunning than the last. The way the cloud is masking that big hill is quite nice and adds mystery. I love the chicken in the foreground too. Excellent shot Cessy!!!
oochappan (16355) 2005-05-28 3:43
How can I resist this, the nice light misty background and the perspective darker foreplan leading to it while we see this man balancing the wood on his shoulder brings a lot of atmosphere with several tiny details and good eye travelling.
Very well done Cessy
AmiBe (6042) 2005-05-28 5:43
wow, very nice morning atmosphere, very quiet.
Nice fog in the background.
Very well done
Tue (32578) 2005-05-28 19:08
Very good picture! I like the composition. The colours are very good as well!
Good werk! :-D
ChrisJ (109616) 2005-05-29 3:53
Superb graphism, particularly the man carrying his balanced load against the fog. Superb sharpness & color. Bagus sekali.
dolin (15703) 2005-05-29 8:41
Magnifique ta compo.
J'aime bien cette petite rue avec cette homme de dos en plein effort.
Dans la profondeur, cette fôret donne un bon arrière plan.
flydragon (0) 2005-05-29 8:57
superbe !! quel ambiance ici
les couleurs sont magnifique
cette petite brume ;o)
j'aime beaucoup cette dominante de
bleu et de vert dans le fond
une tres belle photo
un grand bravo ;o)
john_c (24666) 2005-05-29 13:04
What a prize you have captured here, Cessy. All of the others have pretty well said what I feel about this great shot. The misty morning, the dynamism of the scene, the added touch of the bird in the foreground. One of your very best. Congratulations.
Rinie_Hoff (9340) 2005-05-29 14:32
Hi Cessy, beautiful atmotsphere here, the fog gives a bit cool ide4as, but I guess that's just in my head ;-) Colors are wonderful, and the chicken in the froeground is very nice, as well.
jjbach (9324) 2005-05-29 20:34
What a great shot is this!! Very well composed with beatiful colours and perfect lighting. I like the way you caught the mood in the background. Magnificent picture, one of my favorites!
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-05-30 11:29
Really good daily life shot, I like the ruralness of this shot, very unique and great timing too, well done
sarju (5324) 2005-05-30 19:22

toni_al (15875) 2005-05-31 6:06
Vraiment superbe, le cadrage est fantastique et cette lumière au fond amène l'oeil au centre de la scène
athos99 (6894) 2005-05-31 6:13
Magnifiques ces brumes qui entourent la forêt.
La lumière me plait beaucoup, l’homme avec son chargement se détache très bien.
C’est aussi très instructif de voir comment cet homme transporte son boit.
La construction de cette photo est bien faite, j’aime la présence de cette petite poule.
Les couleurs sont très belles et se marient très bien.
manatee (4668) 2005-06-01 12:45
I like your picture, I love the mist in the bckground, is wonderful, remainsme my hometown in Veracruz Mexico, I hope some day can visit your country.
Very good work.
elihesamian (26149) 2005-06-07 14:53
I missed some great your shots and some friends during my recent shrt trip,and I will try to write for most of them.
This is another thing,cessy,My favorite,very symbolic,as nice as it gets for a rural atmosphere in the morninig,skilfully captured and indeed well composed,nicely done,Cessy!
paulartus (832) 2005-06-13 6:43
What a truly magical photo. the colours are great and the point of view perfect. The small hen walking towards you just makes the photo.
shangri-la (353) 2005-06-13 16:23
jolie image! j'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère qu'apporte cette petite brume matinale...
sayzey (2358) 2005-06-20 18:42
superb photo! (I am running out of different words for fantastic!)
You must have known as soon as you took this that it was going to be something special.
The man walking away combined with the surroundings and the mist and even the little chicken pecking about!
No faults this is really great!
jsec (2154) 2005-06-27 23:30
Great photo. You hit the button right on time.
brajesh (192) 2005-06-27 23:48

Luciedls (164) 2006-02-28 15:02
Tout a été dit sur votre magnifique photo...que je n'avais jamais vue. Elle va dans mes favorites ! Merci !!
Albrecht (11281) 2006-06-14 9:13
Wondeful time of the day and that is well shown here;great atmosphere,POV,compo and colours.
USErin (189) 2006-06-14 9:20
Wow, this is like a scene from a movie. I can feel the quietness of the morning. Awesome shot. Thanks for sharing.
sheepyak (180) 2006-10-05 22:26
I love how the man and the bird in the foreground create a contrasting diagonal to where all the other lines are leading...really makes them pop out. Also, wonderful colors. Is that a sign in the background? Just curious. Just added this to my favorites!
banyanman (7789) 2006-10-13 9:30
This is a fabulous image, Cessy. The composition, timing, exposure, mood, colours are all perfect. The fact that this has been listed as a favourite 17 times (I will be making it 18) is tribute to its qualities. Cheers . . . David
dcawker (5717) 2006-10-20 10:06
Just beautiful! I love the gradation of tones here and DOF too. Excellent! Regards, Doug
jerjer (50) 2006-10-26 1:18
The yellow flowers on the right strengthened the picture. mornings are usually nice to get pictures as the soft light subdues images. thanks for sharing sir!
sebcz (2345) 2006-11-04 3:35
I absolutely adore this picture. Soft light, with shadows and superb compo. Informative as well.
batalay (37861) 2006-11-14 10:14
Sensational photo -- colors, composition, texture, exposure -- of this bucolic scene is first rate. Even the chicken in the lower right adds to the atmosphere created by the image. This is a genuine masterpiece for its genre. Regards from Virginia, Bulent
ariadne (27) 2006-11-22 19:03
It's amaging wow~ good point of view
how can make it this colour?
it's very calm and active
I like it, I saw your picture in blog... very good!
jdwyer264 (1082) 2006-11-23 4:22
Beautiful shot Cessy.
Love the misty backdrop and chicken addition, a great extra focal point. The colours and DOF are superb, the moment that you have captured is such a simple one, but is one which creates so much intrigue and interest by the look of the popularity of this shot. Greatly deserved.
Have a good day.
sabyasachi1212 (19779) 2006-11-26 1:05
I was taking a look at your gallery today and I am most impressed. You have some very artistic works out here and this must rank as one of the best I have sen on TE. Everything is so perfect, the fog, the green in the BG, the pose of the man - its as good as any painted canvas. I am tempted to add it to my favourites.
With Greetings from India

What a lovely shot.its a perfect composition.
swimmer (817) 2006-12-17 18:22
Hi Cessy. Love the atmospheric haze in the background. The man is nearly silouetted against it. Lovely ! It's the greeny blue that is so nice...
Polonaise (5802) 2006-12-17 23:54
It would be quite dishonest to see this beauty, enjoy it thoroughly and then leave without a critique.
Since everything has been said about the outstanding charm of this photo, what I can do is to wish you all the best Cessy, and keep that shutter hot.
Don't you ever let it get rusty.
PS: Your gallery is quite something to cherish enthusiastically.
jafadabret (56501) 2006-12-27 13:28
Je viens de découvrir cette photo et je la trouve très très belle. La brume sur les arbres et cet homme qui part au travail font un ensemble des plus réussis.
sebinho342 (19317) 2007-01-03 10:45
Hi Cessy, i've just comment a picture that looks like yours but i have to say yours is as beautiful as the one i just saw.
All my congratulations
cepekdong (3676) 2007-01-16 6:19
oh my god ! this pic makes me sad that i am not in bali now ! i love the village life ... it reminds me so much of a book i read about bali ! i love bali so much and the pic here shows so much of my impressions !
sarahnatalie (697) 2007-03-06 18:20
This is incredibly beautiful. I am sorry I didn't notice this sooner. Nice light and great subject.
sowhat (1004) 2007-03-17 16:23
Wonderful atmosphere, the colors, the mist, the perspective are all contributing to make a great photo.
Thanks for sharing it with us,
amino (418) 2007-04-06 12:35
Beautiful colours in this pic. But what I like also is the man's composure with the two weights. It shows the life of ordinary people in this place.
livinitout (942) 2007-04-12 5:40
I really love this picture. The colours are so sharp, they give me the feeling of being right there in the scene. The shot really has the feeling of early morning with the mist still hangin above the mountains. Excellently done.
danos (94346) 2007-04-21 7:09
impressive and atmospheric your capture with this transporter and the foggy weather in the forest as background.The composition is very nice as well,all lines lead us to that man in the middle and by extension to the forest.Well done.
pboehringer (770) 2007-05-03 1:33
Cessy, I laready have seen this image so often as a thumbnail but never opened it. What a gorgeous surprise to see it in large. I don't think that I'm able to add any additional commnent to it after all what has been said. It's truly beautiful and emanates such peace and tranquility.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-05-09 11:33
beautifull POV, The man and the great light behind give a s beautifull effect.
I like it.
fleurdaubergine (85) 2007-05-20 12:19
Le cadrage, les couleurs, tout est parfait !
dilane (861) 2007-07-11 7:00
j'espère que tu sais lire le français. je voulais d'abord te remercier de ton passage dans ma galerie dernièrement. ensuite te dire que j'ai évidemment voulu faire connaissance avec la tienne, et dès les trois vignettes, j'ai su que j'étais tombé sur un site qui promet d'être magnifique - alors à l'instant même, je n'ai pas le temps de m'y attarder, mais au plus vite je consacrerais un moment pour aller à cette découverte. cette photo faisait partie de ces trois vignettes, il ne m'a pas fallu chercher bien loin pour te dire tout cela. Bravo ta photo est superbe . L'ambiance de ce village est très bien rendue. merci et à bientôt sur TE
MeAT (1174) 2007-08-15 14:21
Cool explanation... a good recipe for in-breeding though!
Picture is awesome. The shades of green and blue in the background make a terrific effect. Eye is drawn nicely in the middle by the composition of lines. Really impressive!
wilmahabo (262) 2007-08-23 5:09
Really nice shot. I like details on your picture: quiet street, fog, yellow flowers, hen and hard-working man. Well composed.
woladorsky (806) 2007-09-13 3:57
Thanks for sharing such a beautyful picture! It sort of transports me back to those days when I worked in Aceh. I am in an special mood these days, kind of looking forward to new challenges and days where work is more action oriented..the burocracy of the UN system is slowly absorbing my energy. The picture is great becasue of the light, the colours, the chicken avoiding you and the man with his basket!
thanks for transporting me to those days!!
trasher (195) 2007-09-22 17:48
Perfect colors. Perfect composition. Congrats!

gramma (3519) 2007-11-02 13:02
Nice image with this person. I wonder if framing tighter on the person would not have been even more attractive... Cordially,
derek3755 (2341) 2007-11-18 8:00
beautiful atmosphere to this image, lovely composition, well seen
rico (514) 2007-11-25 18:35

Moyano (163) 2008-02-20 10:47
Grand shot - capturing. I love the POV, the atmosphere it creates, I can feel the morning. Top work!
smarcell (19963) 2008-04-07 1:43
It is obviously one of your most rated pictures.
The figure is perfectlty positioned in the frame, with mist and forest in the background.
All the effort of a hard life.
pollod (0) 2009-01-20 4:34
I can't fin d the words to describe the beauty of this shot! A common scenery turned into something mystic. it looks almost like a portrait
Leconte (5795) 2009-09-06 2:28
Beau contraste entre la douceur du paysage et de ses couleurs et la dureté du travail.
Beautiful contrast between the gentle landscape and its color and hardness of the work.
herowono (0) 2009-09-10 1:13
Hey mbak Cessy,
Bagus fotonya baik konsep dan komposisi nya. Pencahayaan nya juga sempurna. Saya suka background hutan dengan kabutnya. Salut mbak!
Salam hangat dari Stockholm
figenya (2852) 2009-12-09 2:00
Smart composition and good framing. Morning mist was the key point of this shot, you are lucky to capture it:)
sanjibandey (386) 2010-01-30 12:50
excellent photography. very good composition and color.
Light and fog r added a flavor in this picture
imtiyaz (1005) 2010-02-06 2:40
Simply super and marvelous,
The mood of the village and the fog in mountains is really fantastic.

happypoppeye (4819) 2010-12-26 18:30
One of those shots that just comes out perfect. Doesn't matter what equipment you used but tthe combo you did use was the right tool for the job. Everything just came out right.
Mitisha (72) 2011-06-08 11:11
very nice frame with original pleasant colors,love the weather and tough to get a good shot in such condition
nice work keep it up.
kmangwani (338) 2011-06-08 23:55
One of the best images seen today. The smoke adds to the drama. Wish the houses to the left were more rustic, like the pretty ones in Bali. Great work.
jowish77 (103) 2011-10-15 17:50
I like most of the snaps from Indonesia but this looks perfect...
