Award Shortlist   


While in Nha Trang, I went to Ninh Diem to see the salt fields and the back breaking work done by the women there. They work relentlessly all day in the scorching sun for a few dongs.

This is the first photo of a series about those marvellous and courageous women and their hard slog in order to feed the family.

A cracking set Jean Noel. I prefer V2 in colour and for the reflections in the water. They certainly carry some heavy weights in those baskets.

A fascinating set, Jean-Noel, with V.2 being the winner for me. What amazing strength those ladies must have. Carol

V2 is my favourite also, not so much for the colour but the way the women stand out against the water and for the lovely reflection.

Reminds me of one of my early visits to France - Brittany, Guerande - where I first saw the salt fields. This set shows the area in Vietnam so well.

Backbreaking work, and all for so little. Makes you think twice before you salt your potatoes!

V2 is so great for my taste, but all are so good
