I think I mentioned it before, but there are many neon lights in Dubai. They really use them a lot to decorate their buildings. They look nice, but make the capturing and editing of photos a little more difficult.

Same with this photo fo the Dubai Festival city. It actually should not be as purple as it is, but my white balance was set for a nearby bridge (completely lit up by neon lights) and it created this color. And as I really like it, as it’s something different from the blue shots, I let it be.

This is a manual blend from 4 exposures, taken around 1am at night :)
