Award Shortlist   


It seems that Vietnam is covered by rice fields. They give the country food and are very attractive to look because of the beautiful green, shapes and the people with their conical hats bent over the green shoots of the growing rice.

The work does not look pleasant as you have to be wet all day with your feet and hands in the muddy water but the people I met were always charming and gave me a smile or a wave.

These photos were taken near Lak Lake (see previous upload to see some information and some photos of beautiful children and their village).

f11 1/125th sec zoom at 55mm natural light (late afternoon)

Thank you for having a look at my photos.

All the best,

I agree with Rende and also V1 for me, but I think some cropping on the LH side to minimize the burnt out area would make it a stronger image.
Well done

V1 for me, but the other shots add so much background. All are taken with discretion and respect, excellent reportage.
