Veins of Dubai

Just one artery, to be precise. This image is inspired by the incredible work of my friend @DanielKHC, who is well known as the ultimate master of breathtaking cityscapes (including Dubai). Even this title is shamelessly borrowed form him.

 

Of course, I can come nowhere near his image quality (this was taken by an older small-sensor camera, whereas he uses the ultimate full-frames), neither his editing precision - I impatiently 'paint with a broad brush' while he takes time to meticulously blend multiple shots into a single and perfect masterpiece. Neither do I talk security guards into letting me to the very top of the tallest towers - this was from my hotel balcony...

 

Yet I picked a Dubai photo from the archives after I saw his last transportation-themed piece, in an attempt to emulate the evening colours and feel, if not detail and precision. Next time I promise to take my phone with me and do better than this :)
