After John's comment (question) about the poeple in the shot,I prepared this note,hope be useful.
About their work in this fields,You know,in first month of plantation of rice,The farmers do some steps after they do ready the farm/ground as follow:
1- To caltivate of the young plants of the rice,(also here).
2-To "root out" the weeds 10 days after step 1.
(the shot's situation is in this step)
3-Re root out again 10 days after step 2.
and Then it goes to fertilize the farms(to compost),and...

Thanks for sharing your world.

A nice capture of the working people on the rice fields.The off-centered composition is great.The lifelines and the green plants in the water add graphism to the picture.

Very nice view of the green fields and water.
Where did you take it from?
Galmeida (12559) 2005-07-30 13:57
A very nice, fine and simple nature composition very well captured in the north of your country. Excelent sharpness, angle of view for nature graphism, colors and diagonals e geometric lines in the enquadrement.
I like it and is a artwork!
Best to you.
mlopes (494) 2005-07-30 14:00
This is superb, for a western this kind of image is really apealing and make me wanna fly right now to east!
The POV is great, did you take it in the top of a hill?
srabbe (1424) 2005-07-30 14:06
I really like these rice fields patterns, these composition is really good with those lines, and the people in the corner, to give a human touch to this abstract figure.

Hi Mohammad. A beautiful "aerial" view of the rice field - the wide angle view brings out the full graphical appeal of the field's shapes and textures, and the working people are well placed in the upper right area of the composition.
oochappan (16171) 2005-07-30 14:31
Indeed a very graphical impression by your shot from above, all the texturing by the rice and the paths, the people nicely composed in the corner of the frame.
danby1 (3697) 2005-07-30 16:33
hey mohammed good shot and a nice name for it, i feel that each differnt field represents another persons life, and earnings will come from this field.
good shot good light control, good picture thanks for sharing
kikvel (4784) 2005-07-30 17:13
this is so nice
I like the lines at the ground and the people down there, like tiny toy soldiers
Janice (4403) 2005-07-30 17:24
Hi Mohammad - very interesting. The fields are certainly wet - quite swampy. Do the workers wear footware at all? Your rice field photos have taught me a lot my friend. This is an excellent POV, great angle and details. Thank you, well shown.
supereira (9576) 2005-07-30 19:14
Interesting shot.I like the composition and point of view.Good colors and contrasts.I like the detail of the persons.Good light and sharpness.Well done!
kensimage (8565) 2005-07-30 19:27
Very nice, Mohammad, a fine composition with the people well placed in the frame. It looks as though you were up quite a steep slope to get this shot with only a 200 mm telephoto!
cessy (13647) 2005-07-31 2:32
excellent bird view, Mohammad
I like the composition, with the lines around the rice fields
plus the people working there
apache (1426) 2005-07-31 3:08
I like the strong lines in your picture here and the fields are a very good subject to photograph.
You have a very good POV here. Makes me sort of curious as to where you were standing when you took this shot. I would also liked to have a closer shot of the workers on the field. But that my humble opinion. You know best Mohammed…:)
Graal (103034) 2005-07-31 4:13
interesting photo. Nice green of fields and peoples at work. Good composition and sharpness. I like it. Well done.
greg64g (11193) 2005-07-31 4:29

ChrisJ (116166) 2005-07-31 4:49
Excellent use of repetition, of the geometric shapes of the rice paddies. The high pov, & perspective, are splendid. Well done!
jhm (155410) 2005-07-31 5:49
Very nice tittle "Lifelines" the different parts give a strong geometry impression. What its these people on doing?
Again a nice picture of your country.
Leonie (8809) 2005-07-31 7:15

dkeus31 (27735) 2005-07-31 10:17
Nice graphism and good inclusion of the people.
marcon (135) 2005-07-31 12:22
This is a truly significant shot, very simple but very intense. I agree with the title, since between these lines stands all the life of those people. Great composition and great use of the scene to describe your idea. Well done!
vincent24 (9060) 2005-07-31 16:26

These days I went to a show of a celeb Brittany's photographer Philippe Plisson
and I found he is great for Light houses, landscapes including highlands ans landscape, and my girl friend told me that despite this one is a great one, you (of course) and some of the fellow TE are able to do so, and she ask for a question : what is missing to you as an equipment? So Y said: well may be some different format camera, and an Helicopter :)))
As I can see you are in advance on every body you have an Helicopter for the POV and talent.
Well done composition the farmers are at the right place and the shining water in the field is great.
Beautiful lines in.
I like it
weswang (18223) 2005-07-31 23:41
Hi Mohammad, You are not only good at taking pictures, you are very knowledgeable to the farm procedures as well. A nicely captured picture with sharpness and nice contrast. I like the geometric lines and the reflections in this picture. A nice subject and a well taken picture.
Amirsun (2122) 2005-08-01 1:45
Very nice picture, excellent use of farm's lines and farmers in this composition. I think you taken this photo in Cloudy day.

Zepi (22848) 2005-08-03 8:04
Encore une magnifique image !
J’aime ce côé graphique trcé apr les lignes, les personnes apportent beaucoup ici!
Superbes couleurs et cadrage!
Merci pour le partage
pamastro (7290) 2005-08-04 0:41
Another great rice field shot where you've captured and used the field patterns to your advantage. The lines, the textures of the plants and the water make for a lot of excellent detail and a simple graphic image. The people are well placed in a spot where they make a perfect focal point. It also captures the scale of the work as they look so small among just this portion of the fields. It's almost like a something small until you see the people. Very nicely spotted out and photographed.
nerve (10231) 2005-08-04 9:24
Very nice composition Muhammad, reminded me one of the C.Renault's shots suddenly...
white and green colours are beautiful here..
Great work overall..
sam224 (6215) 2005-08-05 3:13
Excellent shot indeed. Stunning perspective and very good simmetry and geometry. Nice colours and very good composition.
Very well done!
billabongx (1585) 2005-08-05 3:19
Hi Mohammad, I like well this composed picture.
The formation of the picture and the saturation of the image is very good. Nice color contrast and beautiful scenery. Well done.
Didi (60588) 2005-08-05 13:49
Mohammad a photographié une jolie vue aérienne depuis sa machine volante.
La composition est excellente est parfaitement cadrée. Le graphisme est très original.
Mohammad photographed a pretty air sight from his flying machine. The composition is excellent and framed perfectly. Graphics is very original.
fiedziu (1764) 2005-08-05 21:02
wow, fine composed picture
Hanssie (10856) 2005-08-07 7:50
A nice title, Lifelines....
It is abstract, what you posted here in a fine light, simple and with the persons aded, very nice !
john_c (24666) 2005-08-08 23:49
An outstanding landscape scene, captured with great artistry and visual impact. The lines of interest are superbly rendered and one's eye is treated to a great colourful interspersing of crops and water, with the workers perfectly framed. Great work.
bantonbuju (51815) 2005-08-12 11:56
hi mohammad, this is an amazing picture my friend; i just love its simplicity, its repetitions scheme, and the tiny figures enlivening the scene;
best wishes, jerzy
Jeppe (18654) 2005-08-12 19:05
Wow - I like the graphics in this fine image - the graphisc of the rice field and the presence of the workers - thanks a lot Mohammad for sharing this view with us.
ngythanh (8456) 2005-08-16 18:55
I am glad I found you today.
Not only a wonderful picture to view, but a lot of neat lessons for me to learn.
In order to do so (learn), I have added you into my personal list of those whom I am taking lessons (and advice) from.
bazal (7900) 2005-08-18 4:26
The choice to present this shot with a narrow crop is very good ! The graphism is very nice and the different lines make the picture dynamic. The presence of the rice-field workers give a good idea of the scale and adds a nice human presence. It's also another interesting view of these men at work. Thanks for sharing !
Luciedls (164) 2005-12-08 9:32
Très belle composition. Les personnes en haut de l'image apportent une belle touche. J'adore aussi votre titre. Merci !
