Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at Split Rock State Park, in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
Time
This was taken about 4pm.
Lighting
It was overcast with a bit of cloud texture.
Equipment
Nikon D300 with a Nikon 28-70 f2.8 lens, and a 6-stop b+w ND filter.
Inspiration
I've always wanted to capture an "iconic" shot of the historic Split Rock Lighthouse.
Editing
This was edited in Camera RAW from the original RAW file. Contrast, exposure, blacks, saturation have been edited.
In my camera bag
Nikon D800, Nikon F100, Nikon 28-70 f2.8, Nikon 16-35 f4, Nikon 105mm micro, several ND filters, wired trigger.
Feedback
Simply a long exposure with a tripod and ND filters. Right timing on the light at Lake Superior.
