Title from a song by Mike Oldfield,The Millennium Bell Album,1999
Well,...Still,I'm looking for a peaceful place,Calm and ...Still,I hope for a world full of peace and love.
Some Fields around of some villages are great places for taking a relaxation,...green,a slight rain,the sound of birds in far and near,...all for a short time,...and I must to return to a big busy city full of stories and stress.

First the title is great the world can use a bit of PEACE.
The photo is great the mist and fog creat a calm feeling. The colors are fantastic. You have a great composition and very well balanced. The slight curve welcomes us to enter the photo and explore it. Well done.

Hi Mohammad, This is a peaceful scene and a nice countryside view with basic life and basic living. I am with you to wish for peace and quiet to my life and to the world.
A beautiful shot and a wonderful thinking.

Hello, very nice view with all that green and those big clouds in the sky. I like the colors of the flowers too giving a red touch in the image. Very nice. Thanks you

My dear Mohammad: I think you realy need a holidays and forget the stress but, in the other hand, you seem to be like the ingeneer of "The wind will carry us" by Abbas Kiarostami, all the time moving outside to Teheran, luckily for us, that´s allows you to take this wonderful photos. I like the stormy mood of this one, specially now that we are crossing throught a terrible drought. I also like the tinny red touch of the flowers, in fact I wouldnt mind to wait for the rain to come sitting beside them to finaly take shelter with the appropiate company. Take care and enjoy rain and this red flowers.

This cetainly looks peaceful, somehow, even moreso in the low cloud. Nice tones in the greens. A classic elihesamian.
Marcelo_Almeida (1044) 2005-07-12 14:18
Really this place passes a great peace very. Great composition and DOF.
apache (1426) 2005-07-12 14:45
Its good to get back to nature with your shots...:)A lovely place i would really want to spend an evening after a hectic day at work. Lovely climate caught with proximity to nature and beauty. Great sharpness and colours.

Again a nice scene from the rice fields, Mohammad, and yet another proof that in rainy weather it is perfectly possible take beautiful and atmospheric photos. Good contrast between the lush saturated green pattern at the bottom, and the grayish sky. I like this peaceful and calming landscape.
Hanssie (10886) 2005-07-12 15:14
Dramatic, this clouded shot, but makes a peaceful mood indeed, fresh green and I like the tiny red flowers.
A nice title, but when I have a look in this world..... peace on Earth, when......
toni_al (15875) 2005-07-12 17:29
Joli composition, le vert donne l'eclairage au gris du ciel.
msadventure (632) 2005-07-12 18:38
Superb. I echo the critique so far.
john_c (24666) 2005-07-12 20:26
I very much like this composition, full of rich green colours and textures, with dashes of red here and there. The clouds hanging over the mountains provide ambience and dynamism to the scene, though it is neverthless very peaceful. I like the curving crop line through the centre of the foreground. Very well seen and captured. All the best.
MoosicMan (1231) 2005-07-12 22:15
Peaceful it is, Mohammad, and a good week to post something like this. Nice subtle colors here, with good sharpness and composition.
maphoto (8082) 2005-07-12 23:02
Very beautiful photo Mohammad, great framing with the mountain on the left, every elements well place in the picture, wonderful mood. I'm joining you for the hope of a peacefull world, thanks for sharing.
ChrisJ (117883) 2005-07-13 3:43
I like the diagonal slope of the hillside, & the curve of the rice paddy embankment. Good mood from the diffuse lighting, with excellent color & sharpness. Well done!
jrj (34843) 2005-07-13 8:06
Nice countryside compo M.
The strong green setting topped with the falling clouds are well presented here. Fine details with the background village.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-07-13 8:20
great shot here, I like the dull look, however I would just crop a little off the top though, good natural setting, very calm place
Fixfocus (9385) 2005-07-13 12:15
I like the soft lightmood in this picture very much.Well composed with beautiful lines and perspective.The low clouds on top of the hills look great.
jhm (160057) 2005-07-13 12:37
I'm posting also a picture with fog of day, but without mountains.
The rice fields on the foreground together with the red flower, but the great mountains on the background and all green vegetation make your image completely.
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-07-13 13:35
There is always this very attractive situation from the fiels as flat and involved in a great montaneous landscape.
Nice mood here.
I like it

........................................... just looking
davido (1982) 2005-07-14 5:12
I like your message and your shot.
It is such a difficult job to cultivate rice...
Kind of same difficultie as keeping the world in peace...
nima (658) 2005-07-14 16:10
i just can say it is great!
just look at those red flowers! beautiful contrast between colors. i think you should find a shelter ASAP! :))
i like to run away from city! i do it whenever i can!
thank you very much!
pamastro (7290) 2005-07-15 0:43
Another beautiful rice field. The lines move so gently through the whole shot. The greens are beautiful against the grey. And the red flowers add a nice flare in the shot. The mountains disappear into the mist of the day so peacefully. It just exudes peacefulness in every way. Totally silent and calm, no wind. And despite a grey overcast it is not an angry looking sky. Nicely captured Mohammad.
sam224 (6215) 2005-07-15 4:26
Nice composition with very vivid colours. The dark clouds give the compositiona special mood. I would love to go to Iran in the future: from your shot it looks a very nice country. Thanks for sharing.
robiuk (10807) 2005-07-15 10:40
Fantastic atmosphere you captured here, Mohammad!
Beautiful rural landscape with gloomy clouds hangig above the valley and hiding tops of the hills.
Very good colours and contrast!
Good work, Mohammad!
Jeppe (18654) 2005-07-15 18:23
A fine landscape you spotted and captured here - I like the fresh green colour of the ricefield and the mountain background - I like the red flowers very much as an extra element - thanks for sharing.
PixelTerror (0) 2005-07-16 4:35
Strong contrasting settings here having these thick grey clouds floating over the mountains and rice fieds, atmosphere is dark and menacing but the green on the field is very punchy and provides light to this nice view.
Have a nice week end,
stranger (726) 2005-07-16 13:04
another great scene , I just am feeling jealous that I wish i were there too :) .
Great job man, whenever I want to take a industry shot or nature, I always remember yours as a sample :)
Galmeida (12559) 2005-07-16 14:54
I jumped this one and this picture is so beautiful. What a peaceful shot in a nice landscape. The enquadrement of nature elements in levels is very good. Fine colors, light and a excelent composition. Fine notes also!
Well seen and composed.
Didi (60590) 2005-07-17 5:58
Je note un parfait équilibre de luminosité entre le ciel dramatique et l'avant-plan et les couleurs sont parfaitement saturées.
Cependant je constate une légère perte de définition provoquée par la compression du fichier JPEG; je suis sûr que l'image originale est meilleure.
I note a perfect balance of luminosity between the dramatic sky and the foreground and the colors are saturated perfectly. However I note a light loss of definition caused by the compression of file JPEG; I am sure that the original image is better.
oochappan (15638) 2005-07-20 18:31
I missed this one, so busy, and indeed with a peacefull view, the curve bringing us straight in this deep view to the mist on the mountains along that sheltering spot ? with the contrast of this tiny red flowers in the midts of all the green, nicely captured Mohammad.
Steft (5975) 2005-07-23 7:13
Very nice green tones here, they match very well with the greyish tones of the sky. I like the wide view here and the layers of the hills or mountains. But what is the brown thing to the right (next to those red flowers?). Well done, thanks for sharing this beautiful pic!
Stepan (27210) 2005-07-24 5:13
You are so right and you composed it so well !
