Here is an edit of one of my previous shots. I wanted it to look much darker and cold... I think I've achieved it.

I love the leading lines here. Well done.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the Salina Turda salt mine museum located at Aleea Durg?ului 7, Turda 401106, Romania back in 2014.
Time
It would have been afternoon, as my colleagues and I decided to finish our work early and take an excursion away. Once underground, you couldn't tell what time of day it was!
Lighting
The lighting was 100% artificial and no daylight. It varied considerably inside the mine. There was a lot of low lit areas throughout the museum and I didn't have my flash.
Equipment
I used a Canon EOS Rebal XSi at that time and had the standard 18-55 mm kit lens. I had no other equipment with me that day and improvised often.
Inspiration
I loved the depth of the mine, and this particular section featured what seemed to be an endless tunnel.
Editing
I used PaintShop Photo Pro and did some dodging and burning areas to draw the eyes down the tunnel. I did some colour adjustments as well.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I carry a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with a Canon L EF 24-70 F2.8 USM ii, L EF 70-200 F2.8 IS USM ii, a Canon EF 50 1.8 STM, an EF 85 1.8 USM, a tripod, a Canon Speedlight 600EX-RT-II, a Metz 42 AF flash, various Yongnuo flash controllers and various filters.
Feedback
Like I said for my other Salt Mine finalist, don't be afraid to improvise with what you have and don't be afraid to use a higher ISO, if required. Modern cameras are getting better all the time and the only bad photo is the one missed. Even if not perfect, you can't perfect yourself without getting out there and putting in the time.
