I spent most of yesterday afternoon photographing a beautiful apartment on the top floor of a very tall building in Dubai Marina and just after sunset I stepped out on the balcony to shoot a couple of images for myself.
As you an imagine, the view was spectacular and it seems even more unreal to me since the first time I visited Dubai in 2001, none of this was there – I mean, not even one of these buildings. This city has been growing at an incredible rate and there’s no signs of stopping.
Technically, the 24mm tilt-shift lens really comes into its own when it comes to photographs like this. I was able to set my camera completely level (both horizontally and vertically) and then just shift up and down to capture the whole scene. Couple of curves later and here it is.
