Its a very touching shot for anyone not familiar with what is happening there.
Its a good documentary image, it shows whats happening. The light was not in your favour, as it leaves the women in darkness, but it really about what theyre doing.
I can only suggest lightening the shadows and toning down the highlights as in the mod. The camera has done quite a good job dealing with extremes of light beyond its dynamic range.
I like the way you have composed this, Samik, showing the woman combing the sand in the left foreground and the other woman above and to the right. This makes the image balanced, meaning that you have arranged the visual elements in such a way as to be pleasing to the eye.
By shooting from this angle, you avoided including any other people, and I can see that there certainly were others around, but the legs and feet in the top of the frame are not proving to be a distraction for me. They help to tell the story, and also serve to add depth to the scene.
The story you are telling is very strong, the bent bodies denote an arduous task.
The curved sweeps in the sand add a lot to the overall image, creating a pleasing pattern around the ladies. The strong colours of their clothing make them stand out well and become the important elements in the image.
