Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo 50 km. to the west of Masqat in Oman.
Time
It was about 5 PM and I wanted to take advantage of the "Golden Hour" It was in november and the sun sets at 5.30 at that time of year in Oman.
Lighting
It was a very hot day in november so I left the hotel about 4 PM to take some photos of the beach during the "Golden Hour" The sun was setting at my left, so I had a nice opportunity for a warm coloured photo with lovely soft light without the severe black shadows of the Oman daylight.
Equipment
I didn't use any equipment other then my wonderful little Lumix DMC-TZ100.
Inspiration
Oman is a country with a long coastline, deserts and goats... lots of them. I was working some 50 km. to the west of Masqat and during the few hours I could spend with my camera I visited an old village at the coast. Hundreds of goats were scavenging the streets for something to eat, even wast paper and plastic dissapeared in their digestive systhem... And where goats eat plastic, they also die. So I found a skull on the beach and decided that it had to be the subject of a photo about my first impression of this wonderful country. After some tries I decided to move the skull a few meters into the sea to create a more interesting photo. My father allways said; " the sea gives and the sea takes" That was the cherry on the cake of my very first impression of Oman.
Editing
I did a little post-processing in Lightroom, only to enhance some details but the photo is allmost as it originally was when I took it.
In my camera bag
I don't have any equipment in my bag (yet) I am a beginning photographer and I am learning to use a camera, to look for the good light, composition and point of view. One day when I know how to use and set the camera well enough, I will start to think about a bag filled with technical things instead of the need to understand...
Feedback
If you want to take a photo like this one, it's better to wait untill the "Golden Hour" The light at the end of the day gets warmer and softer, without the heavy black shades of the daytime sun. This composition was arranged, many times I just shoot what I see but in this case I saw an opportunity to create a better composition by moving the goat skull just a few meters into the sea. Water allways creates nice reflections and motion and I found the strange contrast of a goat skull in the sea very surprising The easy way to get a nice compostion is the "Rule of Thirds" and don't forget to get your knees wet... The low point of view is very important when you are taking a photo of a small object on the ground. If you take this photo from a higher point of view, you loose contact with your subject and it will look like something left behind instead of an effort to show it for what it really is...
