Another excellent backache shot.
Such a difficult job...
I still like your composition and capture of colours.

Isn´it amazing to see the daily life of a part of the world thanks to TE? Well, and thanks to you Mohammad. Wonderful, like as usual. Take care.

very nice one Mohammad,
very good use of the dof and the pov in front, good details, very good composition, well done my friend
jmdaoudal (82) 2005-07-19 13:12
This one is very tight to this activity and you catch well the work in line.
DOF is very good and we have the first field entirely sharp.
These three people in the line are at the right place in the frame, and colors are excellent.
The only thing i would make a suggestion is the size of the picture, i mean wider would have given a better opening to the person at right who will touch the frame in a minute :)))
Well done again

Just look at these colors! The combination of colors seems so good! and composition too!
Another great shot from rice fields, from Astaaneh, one of the most important rice producer cities!

Hello Mohammad, nice photo again of the rice collect. Women must have a lot of back ache...... The colors are very nice and I like this testimony of the daily life in your country. Thanks you for sharing.
Galmeida (12559) 2005-07-19 13:39
As usual a fine and quality composition you did. I'm not the first to make the critique but one of the first :-)))
Great DOF, nice daily life theme and a wonderful capture in a vertical frame of a moment of life that have repetition daily.
Very good colors, enquadrement and contrast.
Very well done and composed as your great usual that you present us!
Best to you.

very nice shot mohammad! i think that the ladies are constantly in this position! and cannot stand up straight after a day/week/month/year picking rice like this! good shot well seen and well executed!
KevRyan (22956) 2005-07-19 14:51
A beautiful line through this image Mohammad - really beautiful - very nice colour and good definition where it needs to be too! Such hard work for these people - I think they will have a diffrent kind of strength than most of us.
best wishes Kev

Again a well-presented scene of the hard work in the rice fields, Mohammad. The women's postures really make me wonder how strained their backs must feel by the end of the day. Good use of DOF to have the foreground elements crisply detailed, and the scene extend into the back with a bit of a softer focus.
Janice (4403) 2005-07-19 19:24
When I see these rice photos first thing I think of is "back-breaking!"
Your composition is perfect Mohammad, the people are in just the correct place. Super colours and details too. Well done.
MoosicMan (1231) 2005-07-19 20:00
Such a pretty sight, these colors and the way you have presented this view. But when I see these middle-aged people bending over like that all day, it makes my own back hurt. Good shot, Mohammad, keep them coming, my friend.
cessy (13647) 2005-07-19 20:40
very nice angle and composition, Mohammad
nice catch of the moment
john_c (24666) 2005-07-19 21:38
A colourful, well balanced scene possessing much colour and dynamism. The workers are portrayed in natural pose with great clarity. The grass contrasts well with the red colours and I especially like the portraiture format you have used to render the scene in layers. Very effective and well executed. Regards.

Hi Mohammad - i like Your observation of life - very good compo and frame - Regards
Graal (102894) 2005-07-20 4:02
good reportage from the difficult job. It's really life. Good composition and colours. Well done.
Amirsun (2122) 2005-07-20 5:11
Very nice shot, I like the people working in queue in this picture, and when I look at this I have good feel with this DOF.
Tanks for sharing
bazal (7900) 2005-07-20 5:29
Hi Mohammad. Great shot of these women at work. They definitively must have a very hard task to collect rice, bending all day in the fields. But your shot is beautiful, with optimal light and superb colors and contrast. Do you think they would like to know that people can see and appreciate their work from other countries, thanks to your contributions to TE ?
Thank you very much for sharing, friend Mohammad !
jrj (34843) 2005-07-20 6:15
Always interesting to see the shots of your country side m. As this one, great daily life scene, good capture, rich details, well done.
eco (112) 2005-07-20 10:15
nice daily life theme
nice colors, sharpness and light
sergecross (3438) 2005-07-20 10:37
Mohammad, very nice place, excellent category to work. I like the peopl working and the grass colors. Very nice perspective and and topic.
weswang (18223) 2005-07-20 10:43
Hi Mohammand, I can tell that they were pulling out grass out from the rice field. This is a hard working job. One needs to concentrate on the job also. A well captured photo to show the appreciations to the hard working. Thanks for sharing.
papagolf21 (101944) 2005-07-20 14:48
Le travail dans les rizières doit être pénible pour ces femmes courbées à longueur de journée.
Cela forme un très beau tableau, hélas, je ne crois pas que l'on ait trouvé des machines pour ce genre de travail.
Très, très belle réalisation Mohammad.
oochappan (16171) 2005-07-20 18:25
I like this curious separation by the bushes of the women working together nicely placed in a 1 to 4 ritme, to the man in the background a tiny bit OOF like they are less necessairy, all spots on the women, nicely done Mohammad.
jhm (152938) 2005-07-21 3:29
Again a reality picture of your country, the hard working woman every day, on the fields for foods for later. Excellent composition and soft of colours.
ChrisJ (114043) 2005-07-21 4:55
I like the symmetry of the field workers. Excellent color, sharpness, & graphism. I like the lighting & contrast. Well done!
CliffW (2377) 2005-07-21 19:54
This is an outstanding shot Mohammad, I've very drawn to it for the line of workers harvesting, plus one in front to draw us in. Each doing the same work in the same position, but all different.
As I scrolled, I noticed that I liked it even better whem I was down far enough so that the distant people were just out of the picture. Then just the green, the water and the women. It was an interesting experiment and might even make a strong shot stronger, I thought, but it is very good as is.
pamastro (7290) 2005-07-23 2:00
Another shot showing the backbreaking work of keeping the rice fields. I can't wait to stretch my back after sitting for only a little bit so being like this all day would really drive me crazy. It's a lot of work in these fields. The DOF is good here. I think you might be able to crop out the back. Perhaps at the third line in the field above the tall grasses and bushes. It's nice to see the other people in the distance but I think the focus would be clearer on these in front if that were to be cropped out. But nicely photographed labor again. Now I have to go stretch out my back.
Hanssie (10794) 2005-07-25 14:38
Funny to see these women in one line and one's missing:-)) Nice seen ! A picture full of fresh green and all very clear. I only would have cropped the persons in the top, but that's only my idea...
bantonbuju (51815) 2005-07-28 1:47
hi mohammad, very nice work here my friend: i like the way you show us this daily activity from iran - all of the women leaning in the same time; it must be a kind of boring type of work, and quite hard i think;
have a nice day, jerzy
gelor (3229) 2005-08-11 7:28
Une bien belle photo où l'on peut se rendre compte du travail pénible de ces femmes. Que font-elles ? S'agit-il de repiquer les pieds de riz ou ... Personnellement, j'aurais supprimé la partie supérieure (?). A voir le rendu des couleurs, je ne regrette pas d'avoir acquis un 20D ! Merci.
keribar (43841) 2007-02-10 2:11
I chose this one because I think it is a bit different from the landscapes and monuments we usually see in your site . And also because I know how difficult it is to get All women working, looking at the same direction, all kneeling, and none of the heads covering the other. Add a uniform background, like a green carpet, and a great light and you get a prize-winner.
Keep going well - Izzet
