Artist's Description

A display of glazed pottery stretches – or so it seems – to infinity. 359 views on 10 July 2011.

This was shot indoors at the Cheetal Grand, a major landmark on the highway from New Delhi to Dehra Dun, in late December 2007. The light here was very low, but I figured it was also soft enough to capture not just the bright colours, but also the more subtle tones in the middle distance and background.

I shot five frames here, four of them close-ups to emphasise the beautiful shapes. But for some reason this long shot is my favourite, simply because of the depth of field and the use of diagonal perspective that seems endless.

I adjusted my focus ring to concentrate on the third piece of pottery, so that the viewer’s eye would be led along the row as it vanished beyond the frame.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/30 sec, ISO 800, focal length 78mm.
