Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the wreck of the Peter Iredale, Which Ran aground off the Long Beach Peninsula, in Oregon, 20 minutes out from Astoria.
Time
This was taken at the tail end of my Photo Safari in Astoria. I wanted a nice ship wreck to play with, and when i got to the site, it was around 10 Am. The lighting was perfect for the many textures There.
Lighting
the day was very interesting. the clouds were awesome for a backdrop, yet the sun snuck in on the side, enough to cast shadows, and help create this beautiful steam off the beach. it was hard to get the right Stop filter to expose all the textures happening. normally people take this shot at the golden times, but i was looking for something different this day. I think i found it.
Equipment
I used my trusted pair of Nikkon D5500, and my AF-S Nikkor 14 - 24mm 1:2.8G ED Ultra Wide Lens, The Sensei Pro Filter adapter specifically designed for the ultra wide lens, The Lee 150 MM Big Stopper (10 stops) and a .9 ND Lee Medium Gradual filter, All set on my fathers old D55 Manfrotto Professional Tripod, using a corded shutter remote.
Inspiration
I always love the look of the unusual. the image that stops you and says.. oh my.. ok, this is new.... Most people, when they take images of the Peter Iredale, take the shot of the Bow. But as i was pre framing the site, i saw this interesting frame. I saw the ribs of the rest of the ship, floating up from their own pools like solitary islands, swept with the green of the plants growing... like the green on a tropical 9sland in the pacific....the texture of the barnacles encasing the ribs themselves... like the reefs... to the mystical steam flowing off the sand towards the sea, like ghost waves returning to the waters they once came... and the sand, with the hard textures of lying in wait. So much happening, all asking for a voice. So i gave it one.
Editing
some post, in regards to pulling out the vibrancy of the moss, and a little contrast to expose the fog coming off the beach itself in the background.
In my camera bag
I have a huge Lowepro bag, that seems to not fit everything I carry. it always feels like I'm a soldier hiking with full gear on. With that pack, I always bring my Nikkor 55-300mm, my Nikkor 200-500mm, and my "go to" lens Nikkor 14-24 Ultra wide lens, (How I love that lens!) Add the Lee Little, Big, and Super Stoppers, the medium ND Grad filters, the 4-5 back up batteries, Lens cleaners and cloths, extra Memory cards, I'm usually good to go for anything.
Feedback
dont always look for the same, try to find the different in a shot. taking a photograph is not unlike polishing gems. Take your time, allow the eye to be pulled into something special, them allow yourself the patience to polish it so others can see it as well.
