This has a quiet and dreamy quality. It reminds me a little of Millet's painting of the gleaners. I very much like its simplicity too.

Hi Jaeghie. Although this woman probably works hard, my interpretation of the photo is of peaceful village life - which I liked. The color palette really enhances the photo - the green dress with the green touches of vegetation in the background and on the woman's kerchief. The orange apron also gives the photo a kick. Something, however, is missing for me, to make the photo more "exciting". I think it might have to do with the uniform lighting (which I guess is not up to you... :) ) or a shallower DOF that will put even more focus on the woman - maybe it can be achieved by post-processing.

I have to give this a three thumbs up because of its subject, color, composition, but mostly its uniqueness. Wonderful photograph! That said, I think it could do with some sharpening. Or even more processing to bring out more detail in the grain and the folds of the clothes. In a way I find the dark in the upper right distracting, but on the other hand it allows one to see the heads of the grain against the dark background, which is a nice detail. Thank you for sharing this moment with us!

Nice shot, I like it. Good lighting, but I like to see a bit more contrasts (matter od taste). Good composition, well seen and good photographed. (2 empty tumbs...)
