A wonderful life capture of this ancient tradition, posed brilliantly and almost covertly. She's not bothered about the camera. B&W makes it even more authentic, and beautiful long DOF as well. Great pic.

Excuse my ignorance but why do olives need to be separated and why does tossing them into the air do this? Your shot has a good composition and I love the expression on the woman's face! Exposure and sharpness are fine. Well done!

Wonderful capture - the lighting is amazing and I really enjoy the B&W conversion as well. Perfectly played. :-)) Your focus quite grand as well. She seems to be mastered by the moment, concentrating on her Olive moment. Wonderful story. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting portrait of the woman sorting the olives. Not keen on the cropped head. The use of black and white is nicely done. Good focus and dof.
