Another paddy field & Workers
Category: Vintage India

I cant help but click, when I see paddy fields and workers with colorful attire :) There had been numerous posts with paddy (or vegetable or corn) fields and workers in it, the last one being 'Workers at Paddy fields near Mandya ... again'. I wonder, how many more words I can find like 'again' and 'another'! This one is also near Mandya / Sri Rangapatna,  on the way to my house @ Kozhikode:

This time I was right next to the highway inside my car and only the lens peeking out of the window to avoid their attention. I used the Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L lens for this shot, handheld in Av mode, f/9 and ISO-100 for a 1/200s exposure. I had used white balance shifting (towards red/brown) and later used GIMP to increase colour saturation and cut off the lower portion of the frame.

When I read the first line, this is what came to my mind... 'just like how the farmers don't get tired of tilling the soil and sowing the seeds seasons after seasons putting in all their efforts to feed the hungry world too cant help but clicking them:) :)'

Great click as always :)
