Behind The Lens

I took this photo on the island Marstrand on the West Coast of Sweden. It is of the bridge that leads to Marstrand.
At sunset.
I was thinking to capture a nice sunstar. To do that I had to use my tripod and the apereture at f/22. To get the water smooth I used a 3 stop ND together with a 3 stop DNG to manage the This gave me a shutter speed of 30 sec.
Camera: Fujifilm XT-1 Lens: Fuji XF 10-24mm f/4 Haida filter Manfrotto tripod
When I drove on the way to the island I saw this bridge and imediatly I knew I wanted to take a photograph of it. Soon the sun would set so I tried to find a good angle. When I found the spot where the lines of the bridge woul lead the viewers I into the scene I waited for the right moment for the sun would set, to get a nice sunstar for the extra effect.
I do all my post processing in Lightroom and Photoshop. LR is my go to Raw processor where I prepare the pic for further fine tuning in Ps, where I can use layers to improve the different parts of the photo. For this I use luminosity masks and the TK panel, developed by Tony Kuyper to target specific tones in the image during my digital development.
In my camera bag
What I allways have in my bag when doing landscapes is of course the camera ( nowadays a fullframe camera) and a sturdy tripod. For lenses I use a 12-24 mm, 16-35 mm, 24-70 mm and a 70-200mm. I also have a 150mm filterholder with polarizer, GND and ND filters.This is quite a heavy setup but I know I am settled.
For the sunstar you need an f-stopp of 16 or 22. This gives you also a great depth of field and unless you do not have a extreme near forground you are settled. For smoothing out water it depends and you have to go by trial and error. Small waves need mayby 5 or 10 sec. Bigger waves need longer exposure times.
