This is a very charming and fascinating photo. It's a great portrait of the elderly woman and a very interesting rural view. If it wasn't for the fine and well maintained colours this could have been from any time during the 20th century, or even earlier. A perfect documentation of a life-style that is bound to disappear.

This is a fine DL shot of the elderly lady with her belongings. Amazing colours and clarity for a 15 year old image. I like the eye contact and her nice smile. Good one, thanks for sharing.

Hi Wolfgang, Nice shot from your archive. Similar view you could see also in Poland, maybe even now, and also even now in Romania. But what I have never see is this protection of cow's mouth. It is something unusual.
Very nice portrait of this smiling woman.

Good morning Wolfgang,
Nice old stuff, a remarkable way to show life in rural Romania. I am sure they still use these wooden carts nowadays.
The old lady's face expression show joy and content - however, we know they live and work hard.
Fine scanned photo.
Have a nice new week,

great picture and with very specific climate of the old times. I love the scene and the way you framed it. The old woman seems to be tiny and fragile compared to these massive cows' heads. I also very much like the wooden oxcart which adds very much to the image.
Thanks for sharing

Terrific picture from the archive, Wolfgang.
The smile makes the old woman looks young and vigourous.
Great crop too!

I see you have got good archive! Excellent journalist work, it reminds me a classic report from a rural area. Very clever composition, fine DoF, perfect quality! Is it a scanned photo?
Best wishes to you and your family!

I like very much the lady's warm smile and the way she is sharing the frame with her animals. The wooden cart is very interesting and the green landscape is lovely to look at and explore. A peaceful rural scene with an interesting portrait of a kind person. The textures enhance the naturalness of the scene and the colours are beautiful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Hello Wolfgang ,
A superb testimony of the old way of life in ruram Romania . Beautiful portrait of the old smiling woman , with her cows and the typical wooden cart .
May be I should have cropped entirely the sky , because it is a little disturbing in this kind of view .

Excellent composition with interesting elements. The lady is a great model.

Good scan quality
Interesting scene, perhaps a wider view to include all the old vehicle but impossible to return back 15 years :)

For some reason, the landscape reminds me of South Dakota. The lady looks very proud.

My compliments to your scanner and to you for the 'minute adjustment' of its software for such a high-quality poster featuring the serenity of your pastoral scenery.

This is an authentic picture from the Romanian mountains, I love cows, superb green landscape in the bg, good framing and smiling character with her cart, interesting : I wonder what is the purpose of that stuff on its mouth, not allowed to talk or say anything?!! have a good start of week

It must be a common scene still today. The cart look so simple and the woman seem really amused. An authentic rural scene that you framed very well.
