Artist's Description

I really enjoy the freedom that depth of field gives me when I have a camera in my hand.

On this occasion I literally crouched as far as I could go, just to utilise perspective to draw the eye towards the top one-third of the frame, where my focus is the sharpest.

The slender “rails” you see up the top – that stop tantalisingly short of meeting – are actually handrails running across the summit of each sail of the famous Opera House.

I don’t think this experiment would have worked as well under a clear blue sky. On this occasion, the sky was moody and grey, which actually worked in my favour.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F11, 1/500 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

Featured in THE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ VAULT, October 2009.
