I truly believe that the addition of the person in this photo really makes it work so much better than the one without. Great photo as are so many of the photos in your gallery.

I agree with you, I believe that adding a person in the frame always give a more "live" perspective and that's the reason I actually went back another day and put myself into the frame. Thank you very much for the comment!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Volos city, Greece. The cave actually located on Mt. Pelion at it's west side just few kilometers before the famous village "Makrinitsa".
Time
It was about 11 - 12 a.m. The day was raining and I had the light I just wanted.
Lighting
As I said before because of the rain the light was soft and gave me the opportunity to get a shot as I exactly wanted to be.
Equipment
Just my tripod, me camera Fujifilm X-t3 and the fish-eye lens Samyang 8mm f2.8ii.
Inspiration
I had took a photo of this cave some time ago but I wanted to go back and put myself into the frame because adding a person always gives a more alive image in my opinion.
Editing
Very few things I processed, didn't have to do many. I boosted a little bit the shadows and increased the yellow color too.
In my camera bag
I try to take always all my equipment with me because I don't want not having something with me when I really need it, so better carrying some weight more than miss something important for me.
Feedback
We need to explore the places we live in more carefully as there are many diamonds (places) we don't know about them..
