Amazing image! Congratulations!

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in the historic windmill village called Zaanse Schans in the Netherlands.
Time
It was taken on an early summer morning with almost no wind and amazing light.
Lighting
Waking up early in the morning and being on time on location always pays off with amazing light and stillness.
Equipment
For this shit I used my Canon 6D with the 16-35mm f/4 lens. My tripod was a aluminium Vanguard.
Inspiration
I am inspired by other great Dutch photographes such as Albert Dros .
Editing
I did very little post processing on order to bring more contrast and saturation. For the rest I use ND filters for the long exposure effect. In PS I use quite often the DxO Nik collection.
In my camera bag
Always my Canon camera and 16-35mm lens as well as my 70-200mm f/2.8
Feedback
Be early on location and do some scouting before on a rainy or cloudy day. Try to find a nice composition and then plan your shot using the weather apps and Photopills . Use graduated filter or ND filters in order to be able to capture something unique. Most important don't give up...!!!
