Excellent composition. It is amazing how sharp your foreground is. Excellent!

Behind The Lens

Location
This Photo is taken on the Old Market in Wismar, an old hanseatic town in North Germany.
Time
It was the blu hour in the evening.
Lighting
I only used the light of the town.
Equipment
The effect of this picture is caused by the 14mm lens I used and the low point of view. I had my tripod not with me, so I laid the camera on the pavement of the market.
Inspiration
Wismar is a beautiful medieval town, often photographed, so I searched for an unique picture and found it on the pavement.
Editing
Not much post processing in Lightroom, the usual things, highlights down, the dark tones a little bit up.
In my camera bag
I usually use a Sony alpha 7ii, a 24-70 mm lens and a 100-400 mm lens. These are my main lenses, also I have a 90 mm macro lens and a 14 mm wide angle lens. But I always carry the both first ones with me. I depends on the situation, whether I'm going by car or by bicycle or by feet. It´s not so imported to carry a lot of equipment with me, vital ist the light, the composition and that you are on the right place to the right time. And that is mostly in the morning or in the evening.
Feedback
Be aware of the light, try different angles, go to your knees or stretch your arms out and take photographs and discuss the photographs with friends and be not afraid of critics. This is the only way to get better. That's what I'm trying to do, do get better...
