Behind The Lens

Location
For many years, I drove past this broken pier in Dunedin, FL and thought, "That would make a great photo." In February of 2015, I finally stopped and snapped a few shots. This was my favorite of the series.
Time
This shot was taken at sunset on a night with really cool clouds and colors in the sky.
Lighting
Since the sun was going down and my light was diminishing, I had my husband do some light painting of the front posts. He used the flashlight app on his cell phone to illuminate the posts more for the shot.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D600 for the shot, along with a tripod, my husband's cell phone and a wide angle lens.
Inspiration
The broken posts with the sailboat anchored near them intrigued me. I envisioned the pier intact and the owners of the boat using it to climb aboard the boat. It seemed like they had a history that needed to be captured.
Editing
Since this shot is an HDR image, I first combined the individual shots in Nik software's HDR Efx Pro II. After they were combined, I edited the final image in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
My bag always has my camera, obviously; a prime lens, a telephoto lens, a wide angle lens, a shutter release cable, extra cards and batteries, and my tripod.
Feedback
What really makes this photo intriguing, in my opinion, is how the pier posts align with the horizon. It's a bit of an optical illusion and can easily be accomplished by setting your tripod at the perfect height to line the two together.
