Question: the specs say your exposure was 180/1....I can't convert that, but it had to be a fairly long shutter speed. Do you happen to remember? This is really beautifully done.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the enchanting village of Vernazza, in Italy. Vernazza is one of the famous Five Lands villages, a place to visit at least once in your life.
Time
The picture was taken at sunset in a late spring day. As you can see there are still flowers and spring vegetation, and there was a lovely warm wind that I can still feel on my skin if I close my eyes.
Lighting
The light was incredible as suddenly an average sunset exploded in an incredibly warm atmosphere. I was absolutely in love with the contrast of this warm atmosphere with the cold storm that was approaching from the lefts side. The transition from warm to cold in the water was simply mind blowing.
Equipment
For this shot I used a Canon 5D MkIII with a Zeiss Distagon T* 21mm lens. In addition I used some GND and ND filters in order to balance the light between sky and land, and to achieve the long exposure effect. A polarizer helped a lot to bring up the color of the water in the "cold side"
Inspiration
The incredibly peaceful atmosphere. I was there with some of my best friend, and together we were drinking a lovely glass of wine to celebrate the incoming summer
Editing
Yes, but it was minimal as to achieve the long exposure effect I used GND and ND filter as mentioned before. For that reason, I only used Lightroom for minimal contrast and color retouch and to correct the distortion of the wide angle lens
In my camera bag
I love to travel really light, so in my backpack I carry only a camera body, two lenses (a Zeiss Distagon 21mm and a 18mm) and my filter bag. Then a sturdy tripod is required, and a good remote shutter too! Other useful accessories are a first aid kid (safety first!), some cleaning clothes and a beer :)
Feedback
Try to achieve your images on filed, not in photoshop! You don't need thousands dollars of equipment, but just few gears of good quality. Then, never give up: work for your Soul, not for the Likes on Facebook!
