Workers in a tea garden
Lens: Tamron 17-50mm Camera: K-x ISO: 800 Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: yusuf, 09-05-2013, 05:12 AM

Late evening in a tea garden, workers are returning with bags full of tea leaves.

It was a bit difficult lighting condition, wanted to shoot at smaller aperture to get both of them in focus but low light and their motion didn't allow me. Eventually shot at f2.8, ISO 800. Let me know if you like it, feedback and critiques are welcome.

I'm enjoying this photo very much and thank you for sharing it. I'm with you on getting both of them in focus but as you stated you worked within the parameters given. I do not know where I would be without my morning cup of Oolong or jasmine green.

I really like this, from a compositional viewpoint and from a story-telling viewpoint. The lady in front has an air of dignity about her, as she carries her load like any similar manual worker, but with evident self-regard shown by her bearing and the way she wears her jewellery. While it might have been good to have had the person behind in a bit sharper focus, it isn't necessary, in my view.
