First of all I would like to thank those 16 of you who attended the workshop I ran at GulfPhotoPlus on Saturday. It was a great evening and we were very lucky with the weather. Just before the light got perfect for the blue hour, the wind completely stopped and we were able to photograph some really cool reflections of the Dubai skyline. I’ll post one of my shots from that evening in a couple of days.

While we’re on the Dubai skyline subject, when I went to take this image, I got to the location a bit earlier in the afternoon and managed to capture a photograph of the Burj Khalifa with which I’m really happy. I love the way all the buildings feel so big and overwhelming and I will be definitely going back to this place when there are some clouds in the sky.
