Smart Village Garden, Egypt

A perfect setting for a village cricket game with North Stainley CC 2nds playing Ripley CC 3rd XI in a Nidderdale and District Amateur Cricket League game. The club's pavilion is on the right hand side of the large building behind the batsman. It looks just like a semi-detatched house on this smart village green.

The smart, wooden pavilion at Dumbleton CC in Gloucestershire has a seating area overlooking the village pond. It's a lovely cricket ground in a smart village.

On my way from work (Smart Village) to home (Heliopolis) on the Ring Road (الطريق الدائرى) (check map). Parked the car, crossed the road to the other side and shot the scene.

 

The scene was eye catching...stunningly beautiful that I wanted to take this shot months ago. Of course, it was a victim to my HDR treatment.

 

Composed of 6xp RAW images (2 AEB sets) merged in Photomatix. Color treatment in Lightroom + some orton-like stuff in PS Elements.

 

Would love to read your comments and criticism.

On a gorgeous early autumn day Freightliner Shed 66622 heads the late running 13.30 Tunstead - Westbury Lafarge loaded cement (6V82) through the smart village of Hale, Greater Manchester.

 

Home to millionaires and the wealthy set there was no shortage of smart eateries, pavement bars and clipped accents as I walked through the village in search of a coffee to wile away the 30 odd minute delay. Nor was there a shortage of estate agents open for business on a Sunday either - however anyone with less than £0.5m to spend need not apply.

The famous Pyramid in Smart Village.

 

I was leaving work late at 9pm, then I thought, "when am I going to shoot this!?!? I've been procrastinating this for a long time". So I hooked up my gorillapod to a light post and shot 3 exposures to create a HDR. The longest exposure took 30secs. It took me around half an hour in the freeing cold to get some good shots..

 

3xp merged into HDR image and tonemapped in Photomatix. Further color treatment in Lightroom

Harpreet Singh a large holding farmer with 95 acre who is part of this initiative says “ Water management has improved productivity and lowered costs extensively.” In 3.5 acres of land he has 2400 Eucalyptus tees under which he grows maize, bottle gourd and other crops. Agroforestry systems enhance carbon sequestration and provide fuel wood, thus reducing the need to deforest.

On 24 – 29 November 2014 The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food security (CCAFS), East Africa in collaboration with partners on the ground took 16 farmers on a climate analogues journey. The journey was diverse and allowed farmers to see different agricultural approaches that will work for their future environment.

This village temple was saved from destruction during the Cultural Revolution in China by the smart village head. He sent the people to disguise it as a school and got someone to paint two communist figures among the gods and deities. There he explained to communist propaganda that the villagers worshipped Communist as equals to the ancient gods...

Village: Kutail Block: Gharaunda District: Karnal State: Haryana Country: India Date: 24th July 2014

27 years old Kuldeep Kharangher sprays UREA on his rice farm after checking the colour of the paddy leaf with a leaf colour chart. The leaf colour chart helps him decide the most appropriate dosage of nitrogen fertilizers (Urea) for his crops. This saves costs and also cuts down on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Kuldeep Kharangher’s 10-acre farm is part of Farmer Participatory Evaluation of Adaptation and Risk Management Interventions in Katauli. Kuldeep uses various climate smart interventions on his farm such as mulching, intercropping, conservation agriculture, crop rotation, leaf-colour charts, hand held crop sensor, nutrient decision making tools and improved water management. He said, “ There is water saving to the extent of 50% than before. Other farmers come and ask how we save water, earlier they were skeptical of these methods.”
