This year I was not sure if I’ll be in Dubai during the GPP 2010, so I didn’t sign up for any of the courses. My trip got cancelled at the last moment and upon finding out that David has secured permission to shoot at the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) for his HDR course I quickly signed up as I always wanted to go there a whole day and shoot. We spent most of today there and I think in the next few weeks I will post quite a few shots from there as I’ve got quite a few that I’m happy with.
Since the day was dedicated to HDR, the shot below was tone-mapped from 7 exposures with a 1 E.V. step. Also there are quite a few curves in Photoshop to bump up the contrast in the glass and to bring out some of the details in the walls. I just find the glass in DIFC a great subject to photograph as it takes this slight green tint and there are always some nice yellow shades from the inside lights.
