Insistence Photographer Syuichi Kitamura Camera used Caplio R4
Photographer's comments
Fine sunlight streamed into the hotel restaurant.
My attention was drawn to this flower, which seems to know its place yet strongly insist upon its own beauty and presence.
I could have moved around the spice containers, but I decided to take the picture as is, without stage direction.
Reason for selection
The photographer appears to have been thinking of the flower when the shutter was pushed, but I chose it because I was drawn to the atmosphere of the table. The soft light from the window and the perfect exposure create gradations of shadow that give a three-dimensional feel even to the unseen glass. It is true that the yellow flower is the focus point of the image, but it is the shadow-created table stage setting that fascinated me.
