Behind The Lens

Location
This picture is taken in White Rock, British Columbia. We have gorgeous sunsets here in BC so I go out and try to capture them as much as possible.
Time
I got to the pier about an hour before sunset even though I've been in this place for many many times. One thing I want to focus on is the preparation of creating images, and I've started to put more thoughts into my pictures and try to bring my vision to life.
Lighting
I've always wanted to create an image with long exposure by the sea. I set the shutter speed to 30 seconds so the water will appear to be more calm and this way the water won't draw too much attention away from the beautiful lit sky.
Equipment
This picture is taken with a Canon 30D with a 10-22mm on a tripod.
Inspiration
I have always wanted to capture sunset and long exposure by the sea. I checked the weather report and the sea tide the day before, packed my gear and go to work. I rushed to the pier to make sure I'll have enough time to walk around and find the composition that I like. I want to create images that when people look at it, they can imagine themselves there and inspire them to go to see for themselves.
Editing
I had the tendency to over process my images especially when they are involving with sunsets. I wanted to bring out the colorful sky and wow people. As I get more experience with photography, I found that a lot of times less is more and I try to follow this rule ever since. Although I did quite a bit of post processing on this image but I think this is justified with the end result.
In my camera bag
I usually shoot with my Canon EOS M5 mirrorless camera. The 10-22mm wide angle lens is a must carry wherever I go. I'll almost always pack tripods (a regular one and a mini one). Filters: ND, and Polarizer. I've also started to use my 70-200 f2.8 more and more these days.
Feedback
Make sure to check the sunset time and position as this is very important for having a good composition on your image. Also check to see if the sea tide (You would want low tide so you can get out further on the beach) Bring something flat to put under the legs of your tripod when setting it on the beach as sand are very loose and it will create blur especially if you are doing long exposures.
