Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken from the balcony of my third floor hotel room in Sorrento, Italy.
Time
It was early morning on June 1, 2015 around 6am when I took this shot.
Lighting
Upon stepping out onto my balcony, the sun was starting to peak over the mountain tops behind me and shedding a warm orange glow over the Gulf of Naples. Some purple hued clouds were were drifting through the scene.
Equipment
The shot was taken with a Fujifilm XE-2, XF35mm F1.4 WR lens @ f/8, ISO200,1/200 sec. handheld.
Inspiration
The ship was perfectly positioned and some early morning clouds were partially obscuring Mt. Vesuvius in the distance. The morning was very atmospheric with the hazy warm sunrise and the intermittent bands of clouds.
Editing
I primarily use Adobe's Lightroom as my digital developing solution. With this shot I also used Photoshop to add some additional warmth to the photo.
In my camera bag
For this trip I had two cameras that I alternated depending on the surroundings: a Canon SL1 with a 40mm F2.8 STM and a 24-105 F3.5-5.6 IS STM, plus the Fujifilm XE-2 with the 35mm F1.4 WR lens and an XF18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS lens. Both cameras are small, light weight, crop sensor units that have their own unique characteristics. The Fuji has a warmer color palette while the Canon offers better details especially in the shadows. As it turns out, these two cameras were the perfect selections for touring Italy and capturing some great shots!
Feedback
For this shot, it was essential to be at an elevated location as ground level would not have delivered the same perspective. Also key was willing to get up early; the weather patterns at sunrise and sunset in this location often produced spectacular sun/cloud patterns. The mist and haze of the morning adds to the atmospheric quality of this shot in many ways; getting the cruise ship in the photo perfectly positioned was an added bonus.
