Last night I was out again, shooting from Jumeirah Lake Towers, this time looking towards one of the tallest neighbourhoods in the world – Dubai Marina. This particular block in the Dubai Marina has a whole range of very tall buildings, including the tower that twists a full 90 degrees. It’s an impressive sight and although it wasn’t the greatest of evenings in terms of clarity, I did manage to shoot a few keepers.
This session was also made difficult by the fact that I was shooting through a very thick glass that created all sorts of double reflections, even though I had my camera wrapped in a black cloth taped to the window to minimize reflections coming from the inside of the room.
Post-processing wise you will notice by looking at the original that I altered the colours quite a bit. I did this by using a couple of masked curves, pushing the red and the blue in those curves, particularly for the sky.
