Wonderful

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is actually a mix of three shots. The tree was photographed on an ancient Hawaiian battlefield that I walked past every morning around 8.
Time
Morning
Lighting
The strong early sunlight brought out some details in the tree that would not show well in actual moonlight.
Equipment
The camera was a Panasonic Lumix ZS DMZ 40 using the automatic setting.
Inspiration
Somehow the dead tree on a battlefield steeped in Hawaiian history, where the soldiers of Hamamaha were still buried, struck a chord. It took me a long time to come up with a combination that showed the tree in a way that echoed that feeling.
Editing
This photo is actually a mix of three shots combined in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
On this day, I had just my pocket camera that I take walking.
Feedback
Look for a good tree outline against the sky or at least a background without too many distractions. If it turns out well, transfer to a background that does not distract.
