A very sharp image of this old lady blowing on these rice grains and a nice action came out of this splendid shot!
Very natural colors adorned with wonderful light.
Perfect shallow focusing with a considerable telephoto lens 300mm.
Well done for this neat work.
My warm regards,

A fine daily life in the paddies Hans , she takes great pride in wearing her spotlessly cleaned clothes in the field , amusing and interesting to see the grains being tossed expertly , very few bits will actually end up on the ground , obviously she knows how to handle the rice . If i could look up to her facial features a little better other than that you have separated her nicely from the BG ,fine contrast , good job neighbor ,

A fine capture of this lady toiling away in the rice paddies. Good shutter speed to freeze the action. I'm sure her work is hard, and you've captured her concentration on the task well.

Hans, this looks like a shot that Saparot might have posted.
Great daily life shot. Love to see this kind of work done by the locals. Nicely captured with the rice in mid-air. All is nice and sharp too.

You did an exquisite portrait of this lady!
What a great elegance she has!
The movement is nicely rendered and makes a nice repetitive triangle with the one formed with the sieve until her head. Excellent composition, focus and colors. I like much what I see! Annie

It is a wonderful capture of the dear old lady at work doing what she has no doubt done all her life. You have frozen the rice perfectly
Well done Hansie

Really nice Hans - perfect timing! Nice focus, good DOF and diffused light. Good job!
Thanks for your e-mail regarding my health - all seems good at the moment. I'm busy training for a half marathon next month ;-)

Beautiful tones here Hansie! Just excellent in detail and I love photos of people in their element, in the culture! Excellent stop action of the rice up in the air! Well done!

Deze is erg mooi. Het moment, het detail en de scherpte diepte maken dit een perfecte foto. Ik denk dat deze gewoon niet beter had gekund.
