What a great shot David! Super sharp, excellent star pattern on the lights! I didn't get any night shots this trip...my buddy that I normally shoot with was almost killed in a motorcycle wreck and she was in a wheelchair this time. So I stayed in with her. Love that BLUE BLUE sky!

Wow, incredible architecture! and your take on it is fantastic! Your trademark blue hour colors. It is perfectly sharp, crisp and clear. Love the wide angle effects too.

The blue hour is fantastically captured with outstanding focus and sharpness of this amazing building, DAvid!
Amazing color contrasts and well shown DOF with a nice POv where the palm tree makes wonders here.
The colors are natural and beautifully shared in this shot.
Excellent work as usual!

Fantastic nocturne as always.
The Clarity is superb, love the stars forming due to f/22
The sky is in a perfect colors as your nice timing
Just the heavy distortion which is normal for wide lenses

An awesome nocturnal capture with great use of the blue hour.
Perfect sharpness and light management. A splendid composition with a pleasant wide angle distortion. I agree with you the Sigma 10-20mm is fantastic!
Very neat work.

If you allow me, I want to call it futuristic "Arc de Triomphe". Modern architecture is nicely blended in older philosophy here. And your composition is fantastic. Such a crisp image after sunset reflects impeccable skill of your composition. Excellent snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Impressive sharpness adds a tactile sense to this shot - it looks "prickly". The fronds of the palm, the the "teeth" in the arch and the sharp edges to the buildings create this effect, I think. Anyway I like it very much.

A great pov in a extra sharp image. Wow, The Blue Hour capture makes the image really work. Without it, I don't think it would work as well. As always your Pro images set the standard for the rest of us.

Super shot I love the sharpness, golden colour and green arches. The 10mm lens has really created a very pleasing perspective. Good work

Simply awesome. Your attention to the technical aspects of photography has enhanced this image. I like the slight apparent motion blur of the palm trees. A superb blue hour shot. Tfs!

I could easily recognize this photo ...it's your signature...blue hour, wide angle, long exposure...you are a champion for this kind of image!
I like your low POV, composition and the sparkles...in fact, all in this photo!

Dubai being in recent developement, there is some wonderfull architecture to take picture of. With your photographic experience, the control you developed in using your predilection tool (the 10-20mm), your ability and patience to wait for a perfect balance between the ambiant light and the blue light. You managed to record brillant image of that arch and its environement. Excellent work and TFS
