Behind The Lens

Location
I am an amateur photographer who likes to travel. The photo was taken in Hungary, Bokodi-Hutoto lake. I was traveling by car from Budapest to Vienna with my family. . This Hungarian stilt village is built in a lake that never freezes over due to the power plant that uses it as a cooling pond. The water is continuously circulated — cool water into the plant, warm water out — so it keeps the surface from fully freezing. If you’re looking for fish in the wintertime Bokodi lake is the place :).
Time
I had predicted that I would be on the lake at sunset, but I had to get off the road for 40 minutes and find out where these wooden paths were in the water. I asked the local people, but they did not speak English. I drove through dirt roads at risk in the mud, my family was worried . Finally a drunk man pointed at the lake and said something in Romanian. I think he did not even know what I was asking him, but when I went in that direction I saw the place.
Lighting
?lthough I was late, I had time to find a position and wait for some people who had a wedding photo shoot.
Equipment
This was shot on Nikon D750, Nikkor 16-35 f/4 lens, Manfrotto tripod , CPL filter Hoya
Inspiration
I accidentally saw an amateur picture taken with a phone and thought I could make a nice frame if there was a nice light.
Editing
I did color and contrast corrections , dodge and burn, and used some Nick filters .
In my camera bag
Normally in the bag are Nikon D750, Nikkor 16-35 f/4 lens, remote shutter, Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro - for macro shots and long distance landscapes, CPL Hoya and ND400. I don't like to wear many lenses, because i like hiking in mountains and there each gram weighs ten times more :)
Feedback
I'm not a professional to give advice, but to make a good shot, I'm convinced that patience and a great deal of luck with light are required.
