[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a quick grab on my late afternoon photo routine on the bank of Nam Song River - river is part of Loatians daily life. I was lucky to have my camera ready, focused on the woman who was busy tending her farm in the shade of mountain karsts before the day came to rest. It seemed like nothing was disturbing her from this peacefulness scene and nothing was except for the soft sound of the water surface.

If you haven’t been to Laos yet, you are missing something in your life: an opportunity to explore great nature. The vast and sound scenery made me humble and happy for the little things. But what was more contenting was that I found a great place to find true relaxation and peace, isolation from all the breaking news and complicated matters that tortured me in SG.

I hope I have done it justice with my very limited photographic skills.......

Hi Abmdsudi

A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and wonderful textural details in the market garden. The woman tending the crops makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

Hi Abmdsudi,absolutely fantastic this way to show us the end of the day of the daily life in the fields,the girl working kissed by the warm light of sun is the special bonus of the wonderful composition with a magic view too,in effect there is a great sensation of peace and quiet inside the pic as you wrote in the note,very very well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Ce que j'aime à travers vos photographies, c'est que nous entrons de plain-pied dans la vie des habitants. Vous avez un don pour nous imprégner des sensations que l'on peut éprouver en découvrant les paysages, les us et coutumes, la vie tout simplement.
Merci !

Hello Abmdsudi,
Come, come your photographic skills are by no means limited ;-) Here we have another excellent composition from your extended visit to Laos. The girl tending to the crops, back breaking one would imagine, is well placed in the frame and nicely illuminated making a very attractive focal point. The overall ambient light is also very pleasant bringing out the colours and detail in the landscape to great effect.

Hello, Abmdsudi!

The excellent light of the end of the day gives wonderful warm colors to the scene, and the lonely woman is a perfect focal point here in this view of the field. The interesting shaped mountains in the background look impressive! Wonderful place and composition! Well done!

hello Abmdsudi,
very nice the view of this peaceful scenery with the woman to cultivate her land.The warm afternoon light as falling on the land and the mountain range that we see through the hazy atmosphere makes the image more effective.


Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, lep trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa zenom koja radi u basti.
Lepo polje sa zelenom kulturom, lepa reka i kuce na obali, lepe planine u pozdini.
Zelim vam lepo popodne, sve najbolje.

Olá Abmdsudi,
lindo registro aqui dessa horta e paisagem ao fundo, com uma luz, cor e contraste perfeitos. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hello Abmdsudi,
A great composition in this fabulous landscape , and also a fine rural scene with the young girl in her garden in the Fg .

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. Tu as choisit de te mettre au même niveau que le sujet pour à la fois capter la récolte dans ces beaux champs, la dame qui y travaille et les superbes montagnes en arrière plan.

Hello Abmdsudi ,
A wonderful daily life scene with beautiful landscape in background.
I like beautiful composition, nice colors and good sharpness. Interesting notes.
Very well done, fine presentation.

Hi Abmdsudi
such a smart looking photograph. love the white sky, and thats not easy for me to say because I usually hate white skies. The overly bright sky helps to showcase the mountain ranges, and the lower fg is very colorful and perfectly exposed. a great daily life shot here. cheers

Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating landscape with fantastic mountains, nice scene, beautiful reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi, Abmdsudi.
Wow ....... that splendid landscape composed of several areas of interest, first this field where this woman seems to be sowing, then the calm waters of the river with its reflections and as a background those wonderful mountains of such peculiar shapes already in the mist.
A magnificent range of colors, in some tones, very attractive.
Good management of brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I love.
Have a great day.
Very best regards.

Hello abmdsudi,

Excellent landscape showing the everyday life of people at that place.

Best Wishes,

Hello Abmdsudi, very good picture of this interesting scene of everyday life in a beautiful landscape, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good day and happy start of the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hello Abdmsudi,
I can feel the sense of tranquility that you wanted to convey. There is a serene simplicity to this scene, along with beautiful lighting, and a wonderful, natural background. I like the natural colors and the water, too. I'd also like to add that you have abundant and excellent photographic skills. :-)

Hello Abmdsudi, a beautiful light suggests the time of day and as you say, a calm and peaceful time as the woman continues with her work.
The depth of field is wonderful, from the clods of soil to the mountain karsts in the distant background.
And 'the icing on the cake' are the reflections on the river.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

Hello Abdmsudi,
great view of fantastic landscape and beautiful sunset,
fine details and splendid sharpness, well done

Kind Regards

this landscape looks similar that I saw in guilin- china. I liked the visual effect of the mountains in the haze and the light of the end of the day. the woman at work is fantastic as a subject. perfect.

take care
