I like it very much Mohammed, it's nice to see an after earthquake picture that shows the other side of the story - thank you very much for sharing.
The compo is really good, I like the way you left the foreground so empty, it still looks very "alive"

Nice shot Mohammad. I really like your composition here, not only the placement of the woman closest to us, but also the digaonal line created between her and the two women closest to her. Your colors are very vibrant and saturated, which works well in a shot like this. You say in your notes that this is not adjusted in PS, but it does appear just a little oversharpened to me. Very nice shot, and interesting because of the recent earthquake as well.

Very sensitive note Mohammad. I like the way your words are filled with strength and hope, although these last months have been particularly difficult for your country and your people. Thank you for sharing with us, in good but also in bad moments.

Yes, a really good shot, as Line said, good to see the aftermath with life carrying on. Really good compo, with detail in the foreground, and field workers in the middle distance.

A very good shot to complement your previous posting, Mohammad. A hopeful moment of people continuing to go about their lives after the earthquake, and another beautifully composed and colored scene from the rice field. Thanks for sharing it, truly a posting that embodies what TE is all about.

Very fine image to watch Mohammad - I like the way that the green (rise plants) become more and more tight - the presense of workers also adds extra to the image - thanks for sharing.

Great shot Mohammad. I can identify with this picture. The Philippines is also plagued with many natural disaters and planting rice is also the main activity of many rural folks.
I like the colors and the composition in this pic. Very well-exposed.

Wonderful depth, & the women are very busy! I hope life returns to normal very quickly in Iran.

Very good composition Mohammad. Nice rice fields with people at work. I like your low POV and angle with only a small band of sky. I like your note too, very sensitive. Very nice catch, very well done Mohammad.

Nice shot. Great colors, especially in the workers' clothing. It's a very nice field. The people really bring the field to life. And a very good life goes on. We still have to eat and work and keep things going. Very nice atmosphere. Very wet and chilly. Great job.

That a very nice view and the life must go on... Hope that the earth will be more quiet for the incoming years now...

Excellent shot with superb composition. The horizon suits the scene very well. The characters in the shot are nicely positioned in the photo. To be honest, it's a scene I would not really expect in Iran, so you show me something new again! :)

Hey! What a beautiful scene. It reminds me a japanese rice field. I think it is perfect for that UN Rice contest...

A day after? unbelievable... When looking at this I remember my childhood, collecting potatoes from endless rows. But planting rice should be more complicated...
Good overview of everyday life.

This one is very great !!! I like very much the deepth you get with this composition. The life colors, and the life from people working. As you say, the life goes on ... allways !!!

Very good shot. I like the composition giving a large place to foreground. The colors are saturated with contrast. Great DOF. And I discover that Iran is a very green country. Thanks
