[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at El Corniche, a popular promenade along the waterfront in Doha, Qatar and facing the Arabian Gulf. The backdrop is the emerging skyline of Westbay. The hazy effect in the sky is due to the fine sand particles in the atmosphere which is normal occurrence during this time of the year in this area.

PP-adjusted contrast, tweaked the curves a little, and re-sized for TL posting

Hi Rolando,
A splendid panorama of this lovely city skyline. Great sharpness and light management. I like the tranquil ambient in this shot enclosed in such a natural frame of the palm tree.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Rolando

Good inclusion of the date palm tree. It frames the bg, adds graphism, layering & depth. Yes, tweaking the contrast is a good way to compensate for haze, dust or smog & glad you did so. We can now see the futuristic skyline more clearly. Tfs!

Hello Rolando.
Great shot with fantastic city in the background, composition, POV, colors and sharpness are perfect, congratulation.
Regards Robert.

Doha has a terrific skyline to admire from afar , the couple taking avantage of the promenade along the Corniche has found their own spot to drink it all in , commandable panorama of a city and country i wish to visit one day .
My best regards,
