7 Star Luxury

Consistently voted the world's best hotel, The Burj Al Arab"7 star" hotel stands tall and proud on the Arabian Gulf. With a beautiful evening sky to complete this scene, it's hard not to be impressed by its radical and flamboyant design.

 

Due to lack of tripod, I had to shoot handheld with my Nikon D7000/Sigma 10-20mm. Underexposed the RAW file to avoid blur then post processed to correct the exposure levels. A neat work around if you've forgotten the tripod - but only an FX size sensor can produce stellar noise-free results, so this one's a little rough at pixel level.

 

Thanks for viewing!
