The scene itself is impressive, but the smooth transition between light and shadows, not to mention the excellent composition, makes this outstanding!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took it while during a hiking in Yuanzi Forest, Taichung (Taiwan)
Time
Before sunset.
Lighting
I grabbed my camera because of the light which was creating that nice atmosphere.
Equipment
I used a Sony a7r with a Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS. This is my all-terrains equipment for travelling as I'm trying to avoid overweight. Besides that lens is kind of heavy, it allows me to cover the whole range I normally need.
Inspiration
The warm light and the stunning tree above the subject
Editing
I always do my post-processing with Lightzone. This time I added more contrast to the branches and I enhanced colors to stand out the light.
In my camera bag
I am a travel photographer so weight is an important handicap to take in account. Because of that, I jumped to the full frame mirror-less world with a Sony a7r which gives me a high quality with a pretty good weight and dimensions. At the beggining I got a Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm f/2.8 ZA which gives amazing results with such small size. However, I soon felt that it was far to cover my needs. It was not enough wide for landscapes and as a prime lens I didn't get the advantages of any zoom. Because of that, I finally acquired the Sony FE 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS. As in any zoom lens I lost a bit of quality but I got all the advantages that such a wide range lens gives you. I recently got a light tripod (Silk SBH-100 DQ N) which is small and stable enough to take it with me for long walks. Besides that, I always bring with me a couple of filters: - CPL filter: which is quite helpful for bright days, to enhance colors in vegetation and to avoid reflections in come compositions - ND Filter: to play with long exposure pictures
Feedback
Shooting during the so called Golden Hour can be the difference between create an average picture or a good one. I always trying to take that into account. Besides that, if you are lucky enough to visit Taiwan, get lost in some of its mountains and forest...great shoot are waiting for you! :)
