Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Lake Ontario , Canada On september 28 , 2010. This ship is grounded near the Jordan Marina along the QEW.
Time
I took this picture around noon EXIF info says it was at 12:27:12 PM.
Lighting
As you can imagine the light is natural no flash was used. The sun was right on top & behind us. Something that helped with the reflections , were the clouds & the shallow water.
Equipment
I used a Canon T1i with a Sigma 10-20 f/3.5 lens on a Manfrotto 190 series tripod. This were the settings : F/22 , 1/10 SEC. , ISO 100 , @ 10MM.
Inspiration
I was on the way back to the US , from a photography trip to Canada with a group of friends. We saw the ship on the way to Toronto , and decided that we will take a few pictures of it , on the way back. Getting to the boat was a little difficult , due to the conditions of the road. I made it to the lake shore , so I had to take advantage of this , and take a few shots at it.
Editing
Going back to 2010 and this image , I believe I used topaz adjust to process this picture. At that moment I only used Canon's DPP for RAW processing and as I mentioned , the Topaz Adjust stand alone filter.
In my camera bag
It's been a while since that trip , now days I moved to a Mirrorless system, I'm a Fuji X- shooter now. I currently carry a Fuji X-E1 , Fujinon XF- 18-55 & 55-200 mm , and also a Rokinon 8 mm Fisheye. I also have a FotodioX EF to Fuji X lens adapter to use some of my Canon lenses. But it kind of defeats the purpose of trying to go lighter with equipment. I used a light tripod too. I also have some filters ND & grads and recently I'm using Lucroit's 100mm filter system , which I really like & recommend. Altogether I now carry about 10 pound less of gear.
Feedback
My advice for this shot will be more of a recommendation for photography in general ; and it is to take your time when trying to photograph any given subject , never be content with one or two shots ; cause you may miss the one you really wanted. Walk the scene , go high, low , close & far ; to see what works best for that particular situation. It is better to be safe than sorry , like in this particular situation. Imagine if I had only taken a couple of shots a this ship , and later find out that it was out of focus or over exposed,etc. I could have missed this shot.
