This is a great suject you have captured but i personally feel that it could have been improved upon, although i apprecviate you took this from a moving train which is challenging in itself!

For me i find the tree at the top right of the shot distracting plus the fact it's cut in half. Also i find the image unbalanced, the placing of the people in accordance with te rule of thirds eg bottom left third would have produce a much more appealing shot. Finally, i think the choice of border does not complement the photo, a plain white i think would look much better.

On the plus side the colours and contrast between the vibrant clothing and the rice is beautiful.

If you have the time and patience i would play with the shot in PS, the results could be really impressive!

I see you're on the spot, so to speak, perhaps, in India. So maybe you could improve on this potentially super shot next time.It's rather nice as it stands!

I suggest that when on a moving train with your camera to hand, you leave it set with shutter priority, a very fast shutter speed, say 1/1000s (this was 1/320th, I see from the exif data), raising the ISO if necessary to ensure the aperture will be within range of the lens, and fixed infinity focus.Anything near is going to be motion-blurred anyway, and you'll have a large aperture, and there won't be time to focus before the moment has gone.

I look forward to a crystal sharp follow-up. I'm pretty sure I could try for years and still not achieve it!

Happy shooting! Alan T
