I love the assymetry of the sun and the end of the pier. Creates a bug in my mind, that keeps me at this beautiful picture. Nice job!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a place called Hansbakk in Trondheim, Norway.
Time
Taken at sunset.
Lighting
The light was beautiful for a long periode. But I chose to take the photo while the sun was barely visible. So that I could get a sunstar in the photo just above the rails.
Equipment
This photo was taken with the Canon 1Ds mark II camera and 17-40mm L lense using a Induro tripod, LEE filter system and a remote trigger.
Inspiration
I have seen many sunstar photos and sunset photos. And I wanted to combine this with a leading line landscape. So The Norwegian weather, the pier and other sunstar photos inspired me.
Editing
Most of this was made at the scene using the LEE filters. But I have lifted the shadows and pulled down the highlights. Also rised the contrast and lifted the over all exposure.
In my camera bag
Now I carry with me my Nikon D610 as it does alot better job with shadows. I also have the Af-s 18-35mmg lense, the 10,5mm fisheye (the beauty with nikon is that you can use dx lenses on fx cameras), and 50mm 1.8g. The 50mm 1.8 I carry around incase someone wants a portrait at sunset. And that has happened a couple of times.
Feedback
Find a foreground with leading lines at a place where the sun sets. Set the camera on a tripod and use a remote shutter. I have also mirror lock up on.Set focus about 1/3 into the photo, use a narrow aperture to get more depth of field. A longer shutter speed to soften out the water, above 3 sec (or take many photos and stack them togerther in photoshop, thus creating the same effect as a long shutter. If you got a 1/100 shutter, you would need 100 photos to get a exposure equal to a 1 sec exposure. The good thing with this technique is that the overall iso also gets lower). In post prosess you lift the shadows, lower the highlights, adjust the over all exposure, rise contrast and clarity, but do not loose details in highlights nor shades. Adjust colours and whiteblalance after taste. Good luck!
