I like this photo for different reasons. But number one is that as a farm worker myself, I see it as very universal. We all need to farm and we all need to eat. Good show. EZ

This image has a message and it transmits it very well. It has no special coloring no special effects just plain and simple but straight to the point.

Excellent action picture, and good information connected with it. Nikon D40 is one of the best camera I have ever come across.

This picture is designed to make you think about how fragile our food system on this earth is. In the countries of plenty it is hard to imagine not being able to afford to eat.

It’s a familiar sight in the Indian sub continent. It somewhat rekindles a kind of homely feeling within me to make me remember how close is our global bond. Thanks.
