The customs and traditions of the people as well as the buildings in Abyaneh afford a good picture of old Iran.
Abyaneh enjoys almost a mild climate,cool in summer and cold in rest of the year.
In an year,Average of temperature is 22.3 degree.C ,humidity is %45 and rains is 214mm.
Abyaneh has a compact fabrication with narrow and steep alleys.To use the sun as much as possible, the houses face the east. An impressive aspect of Abyaneh's architectures is that the houses are uniform in appearance.
The simplicity found in Abyaneh's houses affords a picture of life in rural Iran.

Again different composition. Amazing that red color everywhere. Very nice vertical touch. Your Iran presentation lately has been great. Thanks.
RGatward (20062) 2005-02-25 5:56
Continuing a good series. A fine PoV and subject here. The thing I like about mostly is the way the red wall recedes into the background. It makes me wonder if this one might have been better in landscape format, closer on the woman, to accentuated that effect.
anil-ahuja (327) 2005-02-25 5:59
This is a good picture Mohammad. I like the pleasant colours and the foreboding expression of the old lady. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
summersun (4978) 2005-02-25 6:00
very nice warm colors. te light is giving life to the lady on the right, it creates a melancolic atmosphere.
bazal (7900) 2005-02-25 6:08
Very interesting note for a superb shot. I like both the very expressive character and the architectural details of the street. The general colors are beautiful. Very well done Mohammad !

Next beauty photo of very good series - the face of this woman, who is looking to the future ...
Galmeida (12559) 2005-02-25 9:02
For me this is the best one of your recent Theme. Excelent portrait, with a interesting angle of view and enquadrement. Light, contrast and the left side with the facade of the houses. Quality and beautiful! It goes to my favourite list.
Congratulations Mohammad! :))
oochappan (16688) 2005-02-25 10:48
A dary shot, half sun half shadow on her face but you handled the contrast very well here Mohammad, even in the shadow you maintain the texturing of the face.
Nicely composed diagonal perspective supporting very well your target.

Very good picture from interesting serie. Nice colours and composition. Well done.
weswang (18223) 2005-02-25 13:30
Hi Mohammad, Your POV gives the impression of the house in the alley is about to fall, well showing the old and long history of the buildings. A well captured moment of the lady’s face: partially under the Sun and partially in the shade. It reminds me that the people in the village are in traditional minds as well as exposed to the modern society. Good story.
carper (96) 2005-02-25 13:42
Very good shot Mahammad,

nwoehnl (122) 2005-02-25 14:45
Hi Mohammad. This might be the best of your series from this village so far. Really a nice framing with the old woman having a rest in the shadow, and excellent inclusion of the street scenery in your composition. Again the strong light was mastered very well. Beautiful photo.
Jeppe (18654) 2005-02-25 17:01
Oh - sound like a fine place to live, the architecture looks interesting and nice - I like those built in benches and the sight of that old lady - also the soft red colour lovely - thanks Mohammad for your fine works.
mumek (20202) 2005-02-25 19:57
Super light and colors in this beautiful composition. Very,very good capture.Congratulations
ChristianS (2997) 2005-02-26 1:13
Hi Mohammad, very nice composition and depth and excellent light. The old woman sitting in the shadow while the rest of the composition baths in light, great contrast. Well captured!
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-02-26 3:33
Rural of course, but from a very interesting architecture. I like this bricks and the sitting women in this excellent quality composed image.
and thanks for the serie.
ChrisJ (101814) 2005-02-26 3:35
I like the interplay between light & shadow in this image. The woman adds an interesting dimension to the composition. Good sharpness & colour. Well done!
alford (3981) 2005-02-26 3:52
Hi Mohammad! Very nice daily life shot! Your notes are also very informative about the place and the design of the houses. I'm just curious about what the woman is doing sitting there? Sharp and colorful shot! The shadows are beautiful additions to your photo; great lighting as well. rgds.
ale (1819) 2005-02-26 4:50
thx for your kind words as always!
This shot is beautiful, very evocative. The woman's position is perfect and unexpected. Thx for the note!
Mafo (1339) 2005-02-26 5:10
Good work again, pastel colours with a interesting view of the old lady.

mitternacht (1839) 2005-02-26 5:28
Nice perspective, too bad there isn't a little bit more light on her face. I like the almost monochrome alley.
sn00zie (2384) 2005-02-26 6:22
another lovely picture.. i've enjoyed this RED VILLAGE series quite a lot Mohammad.. and i love the way the women wear these brilliant, vibrant colored scarves... its sooo pretty
manny (21833) 2005-02-26 11:54
I can see Mohammad that your Iran series is a very thought-provoking and powerful collection of photos. This one has magnificent composition. Bravo my friend!
cool_krishna (465) 2005-02-27 0:02
Mohammad, this one is a good view inside the village. AS you call it the red village, this shot is very apt. We also see the lonely old woman to actually demonstrate the story of Abyaneh.
I like the way your shot lets our eyes wander beyond the woman into the red street. Very nice indeed.
Praetzer (2375) 2005-02-27 12:57
Warm tones and colors with a nice expression of the lady
nima (658) 2005-03-01 13:02
i think this the best shot of this serie. very nice!
The contrast between light and shadows is very good.
The face of old woman wants to tell old tales.
This is really a attractive shot.
