hello Shahbaz

nice nocturnal picture with a good subjet and POV.

the composition is good but sharpness is not perfect ( almost)

nice picture



Hello Shahbaz,

This is nice night shot. Good lighting and composition. TFS


I like that! It's original style! I enjoy the Palm Trees around! It could even can serve a marketting project. I person could sale aquatic watch who resist to the water. Take the watch direct to the fontain.
It would be better if you had a tripod. The clock yould be probably readable with a little much precision. But for the rest... It stay with some clear! It have some good interest for the rest. Instructive. SOme touristic aspect and i enjoy the style of the monument

A famous location of Dubai where I have passed saveral times. But this image has a sensual touch because of its nocturnal photography and from relatively lower point of view. Warm composition and green signal are interesting. Well done brother.

Thanks for sharing this image.

Shahbaz, Wonderful work. I love this shot because of the control that is shown with long exposure. Have you moved to UAE or you are visting?

Very nice compo and light effect. Excellent mixture of red and gold.
