You can't walk by this picture in the endless flow of Trekearth pictures...
Looking at garment of the worker it is clear - this is very hard work.

Nice point of view and graphic effect with these sand piles. Good contrast.
Thanks for sharing ;o)

The thumbnail caught my eye. I've not seen a place like this when I was in Vietnam. It looks impressive, and it seems these people are having a tough job.. I'm not complaining about mine anymore!
I like your compo, and the blue water and white salt works well together.

Worth of praise and very interesting the way they gather the salt in Vietnam.
Wonderful color and I test what it may look in b/w (see the workshop) (Jean-Pierre)

This is a great picture.
the colors and the idea is special.
ishai (4097) 2005-08-28 16:25
Very good subject you have here , Bennett
Looks like really hard work with all the salt water protection and sun reflection not to mention the load
I like the reflection of the little salt hills on the water, the colors are good too

Really interesting picture. I think you could make the picture more dramatic by cropping it about 1/5th the way from the top (ie no background) so that only the piles of salt and the person walking among them are part of the photo.

Good captured little salt hills with very colorful man.Well done.
eleparc (24063) 2005-08-29 12:46
i am back to discover this little marvel of colors and compo. Very effective and graphic shot.
how are you doing since I left?

this one would be an ice double page (with space left for text) layer in a Nat. Geo article on this place or region. Marvelous saturation of the blues and the whites of the salt mounds are nicely exposed.

Magnificant shot. When I am ready to travel to Asia, I will call you for info. I hope you don't mind.
Great colors and perspective. wonderful!

Good shot, Bennett! It reminds me of the Salt workers in Bolivia, with the difference of clothing...Good capture with nice perspective and great contrast! I think that the B&W is not necessary here, with such a contrast...
Thanks for sharing!

Another beautiful image. I actually like the colour treatment, tho the bw is fine too.
erdna (5711) 2005-09-13 0:56
Another good one of the salt pond. Very good balance in your composition.
michel_r (1118) 2005-09-14 23:22
superb. would perfectly fit in nat geo. actually, the 3 pictures on the salt workers are quite excellent. I believe the blue/red/yellow of the salt worker adds this extra touch, a second interest which is not necessary at first sight but lets you discover more, as well as theb group of workers on top. Very good picture.
Isabelle (9046) 2005-09-23 20:38
this seems to be such a hard work, by the end of the day it is impossible to breath i guess.
but you made reality more beautiful than art here.
i,ve tried a ws too, hope you don´t mind.
EDITED: it seems i have used my 2 ws of the day trying to upload yours. tomorrow :)

Albrecht (11281) 2005-10-06 5:52
What a marvellous and excelent shot: great compo and beautiful colours. Perhaps I would have cropped the upper part.But the picture is great. No smiles anymore, later...
fayeulle (27827) 2005-10-10 9:52
These salt piles are nice but what a hard labour. Very well captured qith great reflections.
partha (14020) 2005-11-20 13:12
Hei its an excellant view,the inclusion pf the person is a wise idea.
Very well done.
banyanman (7789) 2006-01-07 21:58
I have only just come across your gallery, Bennett. Every photograph that you have posted is superb, so it is hard to know where to start to critique one. I choose this one because the contrast and graphic nature of the composition made it stand out. I like the reflections that you have capturated. Saturation is excellent. Cheers . . . David

Very interesting photo Bennett. A lot of hard work under the hot sun here.

Jonas_Schmitt (3074) 2008-02-20 10:17
Very nice picture, great and very creative idea.
I like it very much and the reflections are fantastic details!
Dragut (14) 2008-04-03 21:35
I've seen the first one but i prefer this one. This picture in most equilibrate than the other one.
And the fact that there's only one man with these colors give more punch to your picture
Thank's to share

excellent serie, thank you for sharing !

Nice picture when openeing TE.
First of all, you have a graphic subject with the salt, then you took the picture when the worker was at the strong point of the picture, his walk leads to the group of men at the background. The sun is behind you, lighting the scene, and you also get a dark cloudy sky to contrast with the white sand.
kiks (11785) 2009-09-11 6:56
it looks so beautiful but this work is so hard.
