One would think this photo was taken in a remote village; while actually, it was taken in a fun park I visited recently. Pot making was offered as one of the attractions at that place & as I was passing by the place, I just flicked my camera into the Black and White setting and took a couple of shots; one a telephoto and this one I zoomed in to focus on the work going on. I did not have to resort to too much Post Processing - just a little a minute tweak to the levels and a frame did the job.
What I like about this photo -
- The centre pot and the pot-making process in focus; with the wheel in a motion-blur grabs the attention in a very nice way.
- The sharpness and the cripness of the photo is another point in favour.
Improvements I would like -
- To take the photo to another level, the photo must capture the natural pottery with the pot-maker in the frame.
- In this photo, a clearer or plain background without the people would have been better.
- With regards to angling, I would also like to try another shot with a flatter angle - ie. sitting at the level of the photo and taking a shot.
