Behind The Lens

Location
Bubble Pond, Acadia National Park
Time
I took this shot shortly after dawn. I'd driven up to try to do some night sky/Milky Way photography on Cadiallac Mountain and the coast, and despite the forecast was completely clouded out. Headed out of the park, I stopped at Bubble Pond to see how things looked.
Lighting
I'd been hoping for some nice underlighting on the clouds, but it was already too late in the morning for that to work out, so just took what I could get.
Equipment
Canon 6D with a Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens. Tripod mounted.
Inspiration
Given the lack of inspiring light, I was more focused on trying to capture the serenity of the moment. There was no one else around and the water was placid.
Editing
This was an HDR image produced by taking 5 bracketed exposures and processing with Photomatix Pro to bring out detail in both the shadows and the highlights. Additional work with Photoshop and Nik Color Efex pro to make a more dramatic image.
In my camera bag
I love the 24-105mm for a walking around lens. It's wide enough for many landscape shots yet the zoom allows me to get closer in. I am usually carrying the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 Pro FX for true wide-angle work and the Canon 70-200mm f/4L at the other end.
Feedback
I think the highlight of this image (at least for me) is the clarity of the water and then the leading lines of the reflection, drawing the eye deeper into the frame. In both cases, the stillness of the water is the key. In my experience, just around dawn is the best time to experience this, so getting up early is absolutely critical.
