Behind The Lens

The location of this picture is the Ali Qapu Palace in Esfahan. Ali Qapu (Persian: ????? ?????, ‘?l? Q?p?) is a grand palace in Isfahan, Iran. It is located on the western side of the Naqsh e Jahan Square, opposite to Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, and had been originally designed as a vast portal. It is forty-eight meters high and there are six floors, each accessible by a difficult spiral staircase. In the sixth floor, Music Hall, deep circular niches are found in the walls, having not only aesthetic value, but also acoustic.Shah Abbas, here for the first time, celebrated the Nowruz (Iranian New Year) of 1006 AH / 1597 C.E. ?
?I traveled to Isfahan on Sep 07, 2017 for a mission. When my mission was postponed to the next day, I stayed in Isfahan night. That same night, I went to the Naqsh-e-Jahan Square to photography, and the reflection of this construction attracted my attention. Although I did not have a tripod, I set the shutter speed to 1 second and took this picture around at 22:00.
To take this picture I used the natural light of the city and the lights played a great role in the beauty of the reflection of this photo.
?This was shot on a Canon EOS700D With a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens , UV and Polarization filter .No other Equipment was Involved.
?Reflection of this construction in Water attracted my attention.
?Landscape and architect photographers usually required a lot of processing. I used Lightroom to processing white balance and light and colors.
In my camera bag
?I normally have this equipment in my bag: Canon 55-250 f/3.5-5.6 usm lens, Variable ND filter, Cleaning Pack, Godox ttl v860 speedlite whit Godox 1x-c Transmitter, And 1 additional Camera Battery.
?To shoot the same photo, you should go to this place on a day when the air is calm and the wind does not go down. It is also recommended to take a tripod with you and use it. ?
