Something very casual about a sail up there. Glad you were able to take it all in and totally relax. So hard to achieve today.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam, just outside of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon). The Mekong is a vast maze of rivers and canals.
Time
This was taken in the middle of the afternoon in May. The temperature was around 107°F and the locals still cover themselves from head to toe.
Lighting
This is all natural lighting.
Equipment
I used a Canon 5d miii with a Canon 16-35mm wide-angle lens.
Inspiration
I wanted to show a POV-type shot so that the viewer could place themselves in the peaceful moment.
Editing
I lightened the shadows a bit so that you can see the detail of the plants on the riverbed.
In my camera bag
I normally carry my Canon 5d miii with 2-3 lenses, a flash, and a light-weight, compact tripod.
Feedback
Be creative. Try to capture a unique image that will catch the eye and tap into the emotion of your audience.
