I like the colorful cloths that are in contrast to the neutral pale browns of the waters and the rocks.
POV is unusal and interesting: I'd call it "God's point of view" ;)
It gives us a feeling of examining those people as pure 'subjects'.
I think, displaying a portrait of those women beside this one would make a WOW effect.
What do you think, Chris?

your gallery of old pics are really impressive, Chris! this is a good daily life scene taken from a bird's eye view. the muddy waters made a good contrast to the two women and the rocks shown in the photo. good catch!

Yes! I can see the triangles too! Good eyes Chris... Well composition and contrast. Imagine there are still many people in the world that still wash their clothes at the river like that. well done, thanks for sharing... :)

Nice compostion and interesting POV from high up looking down. Focus and exposure are good and clear. Intersting reflections in the water - some match (pails) and some rocks don't. TFS - Sam

Celle-ci me plait aussi enormement, les femmes donnent une touche irréel à cette image, le cadrage en diagonale c'est TOP.

Like the POV again, all elements are balanced in and the result is a very good aspect from the life of thesse people.
Great et original

Really great shot!!!! Imagine in the western world, if I fell into this water, I would run home and wash, then wash my clothes, to remove this water. Life is so hard for these people.

The colours of the clothing works really nicely against the brown water Chris. I agree that the composition works well, with the way the women are positioned.

Chris, very nice picture with a very appealing setting within the frame.
By the colour of the water it seems that a lot of people have already done their washing there....:-)

The colomn they are standing on, is look like a trunk petrified but it could almost be antic sculpted colomn :) The posture and pov are very nice! I like the colorful piece of tissue they are clothing. Powerful contrast over the water!

Nice point of view and composition.
All seems to float like if these women were on a raft.
I think this picture would be better if you have erased the rocks on the borders of the picture ;)

Another one on the TL opening intro page.
Nice clean washing water, with a few suds spoiling the water quality!!
Good one Chris
