In the afternoon the women come back in groups of the hard field work. All are loaded with green fodder, timber, fertilizers, etc.
..... The image is cropped. Frankly, it is not very strong. Usually I delete these images after a while. I think the personal galleries should be reviewed from time to time, and faint images be removed.

Hello Wolfgang - We women in the west know little of the hard work some of our sisters do day in day out. Yet here they are with open smile and cheerful clothes. Nice composition; I particularly like the softly focused BG where one can just make out the cultivated fields. It doesn't compete with the women but adds the extra information. Best regards Rosemary

Lovely touch Wolfgang., especially the soft green, slightly diffused background and the brilliant and sharp foreground, plus the open expression of the lady on the left.Well done. regards. Klaudio.

Your photos are very nice. This one from Nepal is very crisp and colorful.I like the expression on the woman's face on the left. The blurry hills make the image look very nice.

The woman to the left is carrying a heavy load but still manages a nice smile. This is a fine and informative glimpse of daily life in a very poor country. It's also a good composition where the yellowish road makes a diagonal line, roughly parallel to those created by the far side of the field and the wires. The mild green makes a perfect background to the red and pink of the women's clothes.

Wonderful colour and sharpness. Great expression on the woman's face. She looks happy despite her burden.

This is an excellent daily life picture and gives real insight into the lives of these women - I wouldn't like to carry their loads. The vibrant colours really stand out against the softer green fields in the background.

What a hard life they lead, and how poignant this beautiful photograph is. Thank you for letting us see this well composed shot from almost two years ago.

Very nice post of a local daily life from Nepal. i learnt many things from this image. Thanks for sharing.
it seems you felt resigned to consider the composition carefully in this image as compared with usual you.
Still, i admire the rendition of clothes, especially on the right lady.
Have a nice weekend, Hisashi

Hello Wolfgang ,
This is a fine and interesting double portrait . We can see here the difficult life of the women in this country . I should like to make portraits , but I'm unable to do that . So , I don't agree with you : this shot is not bad at all , and deserves to be there on TE .
MAy be not very strong , but (I'm repeating) , it is very inetersting to see these women with coloured clothes , in front of the green terraces fields .

Very nice documentation of the daily life of ordinary people. I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Good colors and textures. Well done, tfs.

Excellent shot of daily life in rural Nepal. The colors make this image attractive indeed, and the contrast against the soft green in the background setting is simply oustanding. I like the way you frame these ladies diagonally and their smiles and eye contact bring life to this image tremendusly. Worth the effort, Great capture. Congrats
