Spectacular image. If you don't ribbon, I'll be upset. I love the flying hay and the 3/4th visual on the face. Nice composition, lighting, and interesting choice of subject. I could see this in National Geographic any day of the week! :))

Happy Shooting,

Chris A

Very well composed image.
The strands of hay flying, along with the direction she is looking really add to this shot.

She has such a beautiful expression. I love the way the hay flying around her head continues the lines of her hair. Great capture!

I almost betting this shot wont be understood by most people. The significance of this shot is beyond most reality. I would submit this shot to national Geographic. I bet it would get published. Well done. 10

For me this is a strong image and tells a story, I think a photo must tell a story.
An old woman that worked her whole life, why is there nobody taking care of her, didn't she work hard enough her whole life?
