Amazing picture! Perfect timing and great sense of atmosphere :) Was there any lighting equipment used (besides the sun) to achieve such a dreamy-yet-crisp photo?

I remember sitting on my Dads knee as he drove back to the barn. Love these.

Last weeks of summer..

Behind The Lens

Location
At a nearby lake. Lakes are my very favourite scenery for photoshoots!
Time
I'm a golden hour addict,so it was at time time the sun was setting.
Lighting
This particular photo,was taken against the sun about 10 min before it has set. I was looking for a good angle to soften the beams.
Equipment
I used Nikon d700 with Tamron 24-70 2.8 shot @42mm, no reflectors/ocf,just natural light.
Inspiration
This old rusty tractor, when I still would be a child I know I would jump straight on the trailor and play,as my kids did when we came there :)
Editing
Yes in PS cc.Cross processing, few layers in curves and colour balance,mainly colour adjustments to bring back the dynamic range of the picture. Also two or three small details has been removed via content aware,which I thought would distract from the kids.
In my camera bag
Good auld d700 ,always tamron 24-70 and either 50 mm 1.8 or 105 mm sigma macro
Feedback
You have to try and balance both- emotions and angle of light falling on the scene. If you see something vintage,like this tractor- don't let the opportunity go away. Just go and take a photo,as I know from my past experience- you will regret if you won't take a chance ;) Even if the owner is there and you are super shy, go and ask to take a photo,I know I do alll the time ;)
