This photo won the 2020 Choice award. It fits the theme of my challenge. The photo you entered does not.

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken at the entrance way to the Wormsloe Historic Site in Savannah Georgia during my brief weekend Trip in August 2019.
I believe this photograph was taken around two o'clock in the afternoon when we were leaving the park.
This happened to be a quick shot, so I just took the natural light the best I could.
My equipment was Canon 80D, with my Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Lens. The shot was taken handheld at 35mm, f/4.5, 1/100 sec, 800 ISO. Probably wasn't the best settings, but it was a run and gun shot.
At the end of August 2019 I went to my friends wedding in Hilton Head SC and extended that trip with my girlfriend for a few days going back to Savannah GA - this would be our second time visiting the city in a span of a year. I wanted to try and see places I hadn't been too the first time we visited. I did some research before leaving and found out about Wormsloe Historic Site. I saw photos of the entrance way and fell in love with and told myself I need to go there and take a photo of those trees before I left. When we were there I took two photos of the entrance way, once when we first got there and then when we were driving out of the park. I wasn't satisfied with what I was getting the first, so I had my girlfriend pull over when we were leaving, popped out, got in the middle of the road and snap some photo super quick (because there were cars coming at me from front and behind) - which is where I got this photograph.
I edited this photo in Lightroom, with a preset from Photographer/YouTuber Chris Hau and then edited down that preset to my taste. As mentioned before I popped out of the car and snapped a couple photos super quick because there were cars coming towards me at the end of the path that I took out in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
What I tend to carry with me in my camera bag: Canon 80D with a Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 as well as a Canon EF 50mm f1.8 stm Lens. I have a second camera too, being a Canon M50 with a 15-45mm lens. For long exposure I keep a Vello ShutterBoss Timer Remote in my bag as well as a Moment Anamorphic lens for my iPhone. Depending on where I travel I will bring my GorillaPod 3K Tripod or a regular Tripod.
This spot can sometimes be hard to capture because people are always walking or driving down this road as well as being a popular photo spot while visiting Savannah, so my advice would be getting there right when they open and just wait for the right moment to capture this road. Hopefully if there's just a few cars you can just photoshop them out. My photo isn't anything too special, a lot of people take it from this angle so be creative with making it your own. I feel if I get the chance again to visit this site I would try something new.
