Behind The Lens

Location
In Tincomalee Eastern Sri Lanka.
Time
Close to noon on a hot day.
Lighting
It was harsh mid day sunlight from a cloud-less sky. I liked the harsh shadows it gave.
Equipment
I had my Canon 7D on a 70-200mm lens and took this hand held.
Inspiration
This was a very different bridge with a unique architecture. I cannot understand why make such a bridge in a remote area. Not many heavy vehicles. I waited until a villager on a cycle appeared for a more attractive composition.
Editing
I shot this in RAW and processed in PS. Converted to B&W and adjusted exposure and sharpening.
In my camera bag
My Canon 5D mark III (now), lenses from wide angle to 400mm, and one macro. Speed light, remote flash trigger, cable release and Lee filter set.
Feedback
Watch-out for the unusual, do not hesitate to take the image even if the lighting is not ideal. In most occasions if shot in RAW processing can give a pleasing result.
