Lots of rice paddies at Banaue in the Philippines. These are the Hapao Rice Terraces in Hungduan.

"Banaue is a town on the Cordillera mountain range in the north of the island of Luzon, in the Philippines. It is mainly visited for its stunning rice terraces, which are a UNESCO World Heritage site."

A wonderful and a well suitable entry to Friday's theme!
Great colors and perfect POV for catching the beauty of this landscape.
The buildings give a nice sense of scale of the vastness of the area.
Well caught light and exposure.

Hi Chris.

Very good addition to theme friday, I love the thought that this has to be on a slope for the water and the way they arch the contours so attractively. Well seen.

Have a good Easter.

Hi Chris, good repetition of the rice paddies.Their irregular shapes adds to the charm of the scene.I like the little patches of bright green and the buildings dotted about.
The presence of people adds scale.
Where did you take the shot to get this elevated PoV?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Bom dia Chris,

Bonjour Chris

Repetition of rice field demonstrate that repetition could be irregualar, but it is effectively repetition. Good high POV, I am surprised you took this image with a 55mm, it looks more compress as a telephoto, unless you cropped your original image to focus on the field. Nice work and TFS.

Hi Chris,A good choice for this weeks theme,one really gets the feel for the size of these rice fields.Good details & clarity,I bet this is an even more vibrant & striking image when viewed at full size.You certainly captured all the various green hues,I also imagine that the irrigation system must be unique.TFS.

Hi Chris,
a great capture that could be anywhere in SE Asia. The POV is eye-catching and very pleasing. May be abit more saturation could help.

HI Chris,

The repetition of the rice paddies is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the different rice paddies. The afternoon light is giving nice tints to the colors. A good contribution to the Friday's theme, have a nice day.
