Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the shore of Jamaica Bay in New York City. I was waiting for the boat I was on to depart when this scene just grabbed my eye. It was just asking to be photographed.
Time
This was taken on a hot summer evening. It felt so good to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoying the breeze off the water.
Lighting
Nature provided the lighting for this photo. No amount of equipment could come close to replicating this scene.
Equipment
The only equipment I had on me was my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
Inspiration
The rays from the sky looked like beams from heaven. It was just captivating.
Editing
While the scene was so beautiful on its own, I had to minimize the glare coming from the water. As a result, I also had to adjust the white balance and hue so that it did not look washed out.
In my camera bag
I normally carry my Nixon EOS 35mm and 50mm lenses. Sometimes I have some filters, but that's about all.
Feedback
Sometimes the best scenes are those you aren't expecting to come across. I anticipated seeing some scenery, but never did I expect it to be so perfectly laid out. Observing and catching life in the act is what it's all about.
