Rush Hour on Planet Dubai

Explore Front Page (#1). Thank you!

LARGE size. (Contacts only, sorry...).

Taken from the 72th floor of a building in construction, thanks to my buddy Ali and his connections. Also present was great photographer and worldwide traveler Lucie Debelkova currently visiting Dubai.

It was an absolute exciting experience to be shooting at that height in this skyscraper under construction and being able to put the camera facing down so close to the edge of the building. I had to use the Live View to compose the shot because I did not want my head to be hanging in the void!

A few more shots to come! And I will go back there again because the blue hour is too short here, only lasts for 25 minutes...A sunrise shot could be cool too!

You can see how bad the traffic is in Dubai at around 7pm...

5 exposures Digital Blending, shot with my Nikkor fisheye. Some optical correction so that the buildings do not appear bended.

Sorry for being late visiting your streams. I've been a bit overwhelmed by the number of comments on my last two shots...Many thanks, I really appreciate your visits!
