Sultan's Palace, Muscat, Oman

    Newer Older

    One of the two arcades bordering the big square in front of Al Alam Palace, the Sultan's Palace in Muscat, Oman.
    Nikon D90, Sigma 10-20
    HDR, 3 pics +/-2ev, Photomatix 4, Photoshop CS4, Neat Image

    Note: This palace was built in the 1972 by Sultan Qaboos bin Said.
    The Arcade is totally white (apart for the brown marble squares on the floor) and with daylight the different arches create an impressive effects of white-on-white delicate shapes. At night the artificial illumination creates a series of yellowish and blueish reflexes that have been enhanced by the HDR process.
