Behind The Lens

Location
In Canyanlands, Utah. USA
Time
7am
Lighting
I took this photo during the golden hour, of the sunrise. The sun lit up the underside of the arch, and I saw the warm glow, surrounding the spires. The composition presented itself, to my delight.
Equipment
A Nikon D3200, with a Tokina 11-16mm, f 2.8mm wide angle. Handheld shot
Inspiration
I wanted to capture a different view of an otherwise 'overshot' view. I found this composition intriguing.
Editing
Tone mapped this in Nik software, increased to contrast, to bring out the texture, and dodged the sky to decrease the 'un-natural' blueness tone mapping created
In my camera bag
A Nikon D3200. a tokina 11-16, f 2.8, wde angle. A Nikkor 55-70 f 4.5-5.6mm zoom, a Nikkor 18-55 3.5-5.6mm lens. a Hoya Pro ND 200 filter, 58mm. A Moose's warm (81A) Circular Polarizer, 52mm. A B+W 77mm 106, 6 stop ND filter
Feedback
Walk around and look at what you are trying to photograph from different angles. Kneel down, and be flexible. I lost my opportunity to capture the shot I really went to get, due to the large crowds, but with patience, I made something I loved. Don't be surprised by crowds
