ON the beaten track
There are the rice terraces like this also in China, my dream was to see them, but unfortunately I did not have enough time. Marvelous view. You had mixed feelings but I would be delighted with all this from northern Vietnam. Maybe I should go once more to this part. Your pictures are very inviting. Breath taking view. amazing how the landscape can be made by humans.
Kind regrad s Malgo

Dit uitzichtpunt gaf een prachtig zicht op de rijstvelden, de gelaagde structuur is hier heel goed te zien. Mooie vertical compositie, waardoor de heuvels zich nog hoger lijken op te stapelen. Mooie WS-foto ook met de dame en de eenden!

Curious landscape, fields make an impression.
Good POV and composition.

All photos show terrific sceneries and they become even more interesting along with the note. Even considering the number of tourists you describe, a trek in this area should be a great experience thanks to the natural beauty. Maybe my personal favorite is (not surprisingly) the woman with the ducks. I was fascinated by the narrow road winding through the scenery, but the woman's posture indicates that she had posed like that many times before.
I find this main photo slightly pale. I am also not fond of too heavily saturated colours, so instead I darken the photos until they look slightly too dark. Then I add some brightness.

Beautifully carved terraces upon the slopes, Paul, the sight from a high point shows clearly how every piece of available land is employed.
Dit is echt zo’n foto die ik mij van de aardrijkskunde boeken van vroeger herinneren. De prachtige terrassen met de rijstvelden van Zuidoost-Azië.
Het is opvallend hoeveel mensen ik de laatste weken heb horen zeggen hoe toeristisch Vietnam is geworden, zonder dat ik ze jouw ervaring heb verteld. Volgende week gaat mijn schoonzus ook al die kant op.

Dit is werkelijk een heel mooie foto met al de bewerkte tafel cultuur op de berghellingen.
U bracht dit heel mooi in beeld.
Schitterend panorama over dit groot gebied.
Goed gedaan, bedankt.
Groeten uit Oost Vlaanderen,

Such terrace fields are so wonderful. Although made for purpose of growing rice they look like huge works of landscape artists. Excellent light and perspective.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La plongée vers la vallée est impressionnante et les cultures à étages sont superbes et de toutes les couleurs.

The terraces remind me of those built by the Incas that we can see in Peru, and the curved lines create a very nice pattern, making the image very attractive! Very good colors and depth! Wonderful view captured from a very nice POV!

I saw this from the bus window but didn't bother trying to get a photo. Looks similar to Bali, China or the Philippines. Incredible repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!

this is really an spectacular panoramic view of the cultivated fields in Vietnam,on the slope hills making the whole scenery even more attractive.I wonder the degree of the farmers difficulties as cultivated this ground.Excellent presentation.

questo è un paesaggio che lascia senza fiato, l'opera dell'uomo che si protrae nei secoli cercando un compromesso con la natura.
Bellissime foto, tutte.

Impressive panoramic view of these steep slopes, for rice cultivation, is an image of great attraction for the tourist, the work done by the people of this place, for their survival is admirable.
A magnificent color that gives much chromatic richness to the image.
Very good lighting management and very good sharpness.
Well done. I like it.
I wish you a nice week.
Very best regards.

first of all, I didn't know we could upload 4 WS photos!
I really like the WS #1, that one made me smile :)
as for this type of location, isn't it every photographers dream? I know its one of mine.
Reading your note, you sounds conflicted. There seems to be alot of joy in photographing these rice fields on the slopes, but yet you also feel its something which everyone photographs. Perhaps that takes away some of its charm for you?
in any case, I love the shot, and i'm jealous :)
so that should tell you everything you need to know
