Behind The Lens

Location
In Tortuguero, Costa Rica
Time
In the afternoon
Lighting
Just natural lighting, overcast day
Equipment
Canon 5D mk III with EF100-400 at 310 mm. Iso 800. Taken handhold from a small boat
Inspiration
The fantastic colors of the Basilisk with its wonderfull yellow eyes.
Editing
In Lightroom I saturated the colors and added sharpening. Removed some sensor spots.
In my camera bag
Always my Canon 5D mark III or DS with my favorite L lenses 70-200 F2.8, 16-35F4 and 100 mm Macro
Feedback
Have lots of time exploring the area, and of cause to be in the morning and afternoon hours where the light is at its best.
