The Art of Commerce

Original photo by GF
This image was captured by my husband on a trip to India.  It speaks of a lively and colorful market he passed on his way through the city. Each vendor has his offerings neatly arranged with as much visual appeal as possible. 

While this appeal is composed of many details it comes down to light and color.  I cropped the photo and reduced the bit depth, highlighting the form,  the color and the contrast of light and shadow. I think this draws us into the vision that inspired the capture and shares the beauty and creativity that can be a persuasive element in the art of commerce.

"Gourd-ous"! I like the new format and the larger image. The colors are especially rich in this piece. It has a very nice feel to it.
