Behind The Lens

Location
Took this at Watkins Glen State Park in Watkins Glen Ny.
Time
Taken in the mid morning/afternoon.
Lighting
Nothing really special about the lighting. It's in a pretty well shades area so no worry about too much sunlight. Can really be shot any time of day.
Equipment
This was shot with the Nikon D7000 and Nikon 17-55 2.8. I believe I used a Singh-Ray vari-n-duo as well.
Inspiration
It looks like a fantasy world. It's actually been shot to death by just about everyone.
Editing
It's a very busy place and nearly impossible to get a pic without people in it so I had to take multiple shots and blend them out. Other than than just contrast, sharpness, and a little vibrance.
In my camera bag
I just graduated from a Nikon D610 with Sigma 24-105 f4 to a Nikon Z6 with the Z 24-70 f4. I also have the Z 20 mm 1.8s, love that lens. Also the Tamron 100-400 and Rokinon 14mm 2.8.
Feedback
Be patient if you want to shoot here. Lots of people so take multiple shots.
