These farmers were coming back from the fields and, as they are not used to see foreigners, they all started waving, smiling and calling us.

On sent bien la bonne humeur de ces agriculteurs revenant des champs. Expo et netteté sont impeccables. J'aime bien le léger flou des roues, indiquant le mouvement...

Great shot of this farm scene! Great focus on the moving target! Interesting mixture of hats, but I think I do see at least one khmer scarf. Well done. Fine work, regards,

That are happy farmers that is obvious, the still smile despite the hard work they did. Good POV and execution with vibrant color hues, you used the sun to boost the colors, superb. Thanks for your critique of my sunset.

Good title for this joyful and alive photo. The enthusiasm of this people is contagious and the warm colours makes the image really appealing. A well captured travel photo.
This reminds me of a story an English friend of mine told me. She was in China with her boyfriend in a small town and were watching the caravan of a circus passing by in the street. A Chinese child near them told to his mother (they could understand Chinese): "Today is my lucky day, I could see the elephants and two white people at the same time!"
Isn't it nice? (:-)

Cette photo est un plaisir. Il y a encore des gens souriants, aimables, sympathiques, accueillants. Le travail ne les aigrit pas, bien au contraire. Excellentes composition et réalisation.

a funny cheerful and colorful photo.
Do they wear those scarfs against the dust or the sun?

It is amazing how things has change in the last 20 years and for good and not worst. At least in this case it is a happy farmers on such a nice farming tractor or whatever you call it. When I was in Cambodia, there was a truck that pass by me and they were just laughing and waving.
The last time I have seen images of a group of young men like these wrap in the traditional towel, they were Kame Rouge military that my mother and my Cambodian neighbor here in America talked about. It was scary and threatening.
I t is absolutely wonderful to see, all this happy and smiley faces. Cambodia had seen its worst days. It is great to see such improvement. I know there is still so much more to be improved, but at least here we see a great beginning.
Great shot, I love the energy and cheerfulness of this photo. Thanks.

Great to see such happy people - in a country that has been through so much. With their coolie hats and krama scarves they are well protected from the sun and the dust. Cheers, Marlene
