First title was "To enjoy in the Fields",I was not sure about it,then dear Gae (Zanni) commented here,and I chenged it again to another simple.
Yes,When the farmers works such hard in the rice fields,the poeple and I as an amateur photographer appears around to take enjoy from the fields and workers and take some shots for my(our) gallery,but they are going on and on,all the time and always.
But,There is a fact,that the rice fields are beautiful,all knows this,from children to old people.
Sometimes I talk to them,they are very kind,and sometimes they say that if they were like me! and I say them If I was like them,"your life is better"!!!both says to the other,but they continue : " at least,You can do photography and will take an enjoy when we are working but how about us..." !
And I don't know,sometimes I have to turn off my camera and ...do think more.

Hi Mohammad, A nice contrast and a nice reflection. I guess these two kids are "city kids". I am guessing so because of their fun spirit looking along and small path and their shoes which are not so fit for the field :D
A well seen and well captured picture with colorful contrast and sharpness.

Très belle scène!
J'aime beaucoup ces couleurs pétantes et ces reflets.
UN très bon cadrage également!

I am not sure about "to enjoy in the fields": there is something sad I feel in your picture, Mohammad. It will be the fatigue of workers in the field, it will be the serious expression of the the tallest little girl, it will be something else (also the lack of note) but the sensation is this. I like your composition but the title should be different. How much is splendid the youth that however finishes in a moment.

I agree with Gae's reading of the mood, and I think the new title makes a better fit for this scene involving the workers, Mohammad. A good simple scene from the field, with a well-included reflection and nice saturated colors.

Hello Mohammad. This is nice - I like the overall darkness, (though lovely light) broken by the vivid colours of the children's clothing and its reflections. I also like the contrast between the children walking straight and tall, and the adults crouched over their work. Zanni's critique is very perceptive I think.

Very good capture of the working family,Mohammad.The new title matches it very good.A well balanced composition in which the reflection is a great detail.
I like the thoughtful note.

A good daily life shot with superb clarity & sharpness, & excellent colour saturation. I like the warm cold opposition between the hot clothing colors on the left & cool clothing colors on the right. Well done!

Interesting juxtaposition between the walkers and the workers. NIcely arranged, with the two walking intot hte frame.

Hi mohammad, this is a good reflection and reflexion about the rice work in the field.
I like the composition for a lot of visual reason and for example the working group and the walking group.
The line cutting the frame is shown flat and this gives a good visual effect, I would suggest in order to have it better and (don't know if it was possible) to have a little more space between the frame for the group at right; this for the balance, but this is very personnal opinion :)))

Hi Mohammad, Nice note. You are right. Sometimes I can not say anything in fron of the rice paddy workers. It is sad story, and we ignore it all the time when we pass the rice paddy or farm. Something in you photo gives me a sadness. I like composition. Keep it on, you are a great photographer.

Hi Mohammad. Magnificent colours and reflections in this well composed daily life shot. The colours contrast well and there is good, interesting daily life action. I also like the different layers of colour. Very well done.

Hi Mohammad. You capture a superb light and a great reflection for this new and interesting work-picture. Congratulation for the choice of crop that fits very well with the composition, and for the light management. Thanks for sharing.

Great composition in this interesting shot. Good thoughtful note as well. I really did not know you grew rice in your country, I always thought it was too dry there for that.
pamastro (7290) 2005-07-10 1:35
Another excellent field shot. I also get the fatigue feel here and definitely would not like to be in their shoes, even if they get to be in this environment. The work would drain any chance to take it all in. I like the three working up there and the other two almost marching along going to their own place to do the same thing. It has a very heavy feel as I said. But still lightened a bit because of the environment.

Nice photo. I like the composition and the brown tones of the earth and the green tones of the grass. The colourful cloth stand out very well. A beautiful photo.
sandip (3492) 2005-07-11 14:28
