seemingly simple capture, but luminous color, tactile texture, a sense of place, of work, of character, of life

Thanks for all the useful, nice and sometimes critical comments. Just starting to submit my shots, so I appreciate any encouragement and feedback that helps me improve.

Love how hats symbolise the heads.

This is a brilliant image. There is a secret balance, between the two carriers on their perpendicular planes. It is momentary and eternal. You get a 10 from me.

You should have used the full 720 pixels on at least one side. Other than that, this is some interesting street photography. Nice textures, colors and a lot going on.

vibrant colours, nicely sharpened, nice DOF, very interesting shot that holds you attention and you hold your breath to as you want to see if the limes (?) will fall. Great capturewell done

more of a tourist snap than a well thought out image...I reckon it would have been better to approach the person and get a decent shot...in this, everyone has their back to us...sorry :(

Great street life!

the ladder, the pole, the two people carrying baskets, the decay of the wall - it all provides a wonderful snapshot into the back alleys of Hanoi

Excellent street shot. The tempation is to complain that you can't see their faces, but I'm not sure you could at any angle.
