Behind The Lens

Location
I realized this photo in Bastogne, on Place Mac Auliffe during the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.
Time
It was early afternoon. The crowd had gathered along the main street in the center of Bastogne, eager to see the column of vintage vehicles and ls actors representing various units who fought for the liberation in 1944 in Bastogne.
Lighting
Standing on one of the benches still rare free, I was hoping the month of background to take at least an incredible picture and out of the lot. It is by seeing the driver of the Jeep with his cigar, his sunglasses and smoked this development by the sun I thought to myself, "this one will be a beautiful picture!"
Equipment
I had my Canon 7D and my 100-400mm.
Inspiration
The contrast highlighted by the winter sun, relax beside the driver, his way of smoking this cigar while plunged me 70 years back. I almost feel VE like my grandparents could feel it. (Thank you to all those who are like me felt that way).
Editing
To bring even more strength to the photo, I have developed in sepia, giving a more authentic touch to this historical reconstitition.
In my camera bag
I try, with experience, to content myself goals and enclosures only required depending on the type of picture or situation. Here, luckily I had my zoom, otherwise it would have been difficult to recreate through this photo, the atmosphere perceived at that time.
Feedback
I think to take good pictures of street, besides the techniques and equipment, we must have the skills of observation, patience, to take the moment, the real one that gives you this emotion.
