Congratulations on being a finalist! Great contrast in colours with the gold and the blue. The reflection is so clear you could turn the picture upside down. Great photo! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

Amazing shot. It's a beautiful place. I have been through there a few times on my way to Elfin Cove AK.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken from one of the fingers of South Harbor in Petersburg, Alaska. I love photographing the harbors, as commercial fishing is the biggest part of our community!
Time
My sister and I had gone to the Sons of Norway Hall for bingo the night this was shot. After bingo, we saw there was some great fog and we decided to take a "photo walk". We walked down on several areas of South Harbor that night and I got some amazing shots of fog, boats, the moon, etc...It was a wonderful experience...Alaska at its finest! This particular image was taken around 11pm on June 26, 2015...there are other images taken that night in my gallery on my profile as well!
Lighting
I only used available lighting for this shot...just lamp posts and the moon, no flash!
Equipment
The camera used was a Canon 5D Mark II, the lens was a Canon EF 24-105mm 1:4 L IS USM, tripod used was Ravelli APLT4 61"
Inspiration
I was originally inspired by the fog that had appeared as we were leaving the Sons of Norway Hall...and when we walked down the dock, I saw that everything that was lit by the lamp posts looked gold! I started taking photographs and the moon peeked out from behind the clouds! The whole scene was reflected in the waters of the harbor and it amazed me, so I photographed it! I'm so glad I did! It has become one of my most favorite images!
Editing
I used Lightroom to fix simple things such as exposure
In my camera bag
I have my Canon 5D Mark II, a Canon 70-200mm L 2.8 lens, a 50mm 1.4 lens, a 90-300mm lens, a 24-105mm L lens and my speedlight flash..extra batteries, extra memory cards, business cards, square payment reader, and a pen :)
Feedback
Use a tripod, have patience and enjoy the experience!
