Love this picture... the rows, the unified direction of the flowers... the dark and light variances...the clouds.... love the rays shining down... almost like God is speaking to the field of flowers.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture along the street to go to job, in Migliarino, Lucca, Tuscany
Time
It was about 7.30 am, I was going to work, I always have my equipment with me...
Lighting
I was searching a different shot for this beautiful sunflowers, a different point of view.. every morning I observed the place, and one day I finally found the correct light : in this picture the light seems that caress the sunflowers!
Equipment
I used a Nikon D3200, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 and my tripod
Inspiration
I love sunflowers and the sun! I've tried to take a picture with a different point of view, I would empathize myself with them, anything better to put me behind and follow the sun like sunflowers!
Editing
This is not a single shot, one shot for the sky to emphasize the sunbeam, and one for the sunflowers' field: with Photoshop I put them together. Than, like I usually do, I adjust contrast, line curves, vividness and shadows.
In my camera bag
I alway have my camera Nikon D3200, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ( wonderful for landscapes), Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G, ND Filters, and the Tripod Manfrotto 055XProb
Feedback
This is not an extremely particular diffult picture, rather is a very simple one.The thing that makes it different is the strange point of view. With this point of view the people enter with me in the field of sunflowers, and aybe they have also the same feeling that I had taking this picture. Also the converging lines in a composition get a picture powerful.
