    Terraced fields are a form of sloping land cultivation of many different ethnic groups around the world. In agriculture, a terrace is a piece of sloped plane that has been cut into a series of successively receding flat surfaces or platforms, which resemble steps, for the purposes of more effective farming . This type of landscaping, therefore, is called terracing.Graduated terrace steps are commonly used to farm on hilly or mountainous terrain.

    Taking this from a high vantage point allows us to see the natural patterns more clearly. The water is so still it looks like glass in some areas and the people lend a good perspective on how vast these fields are. I'm glad you didn't place them in the middle, this image has good composition. Nice work.
