Night view of the Burj Al Arab

You may have noticed that most of my recent Dubai shot are night one. The reasons here are multiple, but mostly two. During the day, the weather was crazy sunny, with a lot of haze, which did not really work well for photos. On the other hand, the sunrise and especially blue hours were crazy short, in the range of 15 minutes only. Really hard to get many shots, if you do around 30s exposures. But since Dubai is so lit up, you can take photos during the whole night anyway :)

For today’s photo I zoomed in all the way while taking photos of Palm Jumeirah (the panorama I posted few days ago) while looking to the right. I wanted to include more of the city here, but was not able to extent the camera out enough from the balcony, to not see the wall of the skyscraper I was taking photos from.

This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
