While standing on the Bar Harbor Pier shooting sunset, a lobster boat pulls up and starts hauling their traps off the boat and on to a trailer. I imagine their season is winding down. All of the sudden, the framing, the lighting and the action came together and I started focusing on them, rather than the landscape/sunset. There's so many clichés about photography that happened with this image: being at the right place at the right time, lighting is everything, you have to go out shooting to get pictures ... It was cold and windy (22° F and 15 mph) and there I was snapping away.
About the lighting, the sun was setting - however the golden light on the subject was from the boat deck below him (thought it looks like sunset lighting). Here's my shot with some post-processing steps below.
A small crop from the upper-right in Lightroom. Ran through Nik Define, due to the higher ISO. In Nik Color Efex Pro: added Tonal Contrast and Skylight Filter.
In Nik Veviza: adjusted the sky for a richer blue color.
In Lightroom, toned down the gold areas of the machinery (so they would not compete with the lobsterman's face), toned down the brightness on the sliver clip on the right wooden pole and add a slight vignette. I also ran through Nik Sharpener Pro.
EXIF data: Nikon D800, 24-70mm @ 42mm, f/5.6, 1/2 sec, ISO 250, 12/7/13, 4:27 PM
