[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bit of an insomniacal night meant I headed out with my camera and tripod in the early hours to the 'Business Bay' area of Dubai... Full moon and a bit of scudding cloud and a 4 and 1/2 minute exposure gave this result.

270 seconds, f22 and ISO100. Minimal PP...

Hi David
What can i say. Beautiful location and beautiful picture. Lovely attractive tones. The water has been rendered glass-like by the long exposure and the image is sharp as a pin. I was looking for noise caused by the long exposure but with my old eyes I couldn't see any.
Nit picking. Top right there is a tiny blemish and the are construction bollards at the extreme right.
A photo I would be proud of.

Great photo, David. Incidentally TL is enriched with a major participation of you.
Dubay is one of yours favorite subjects and this captures showing a magnificent use of long exposure is a photo of high quality and great taste.
tenha um bom dia,

Beautiful composition, colors. Really a WOW capture!!

Awesome nocturnal shot! Very soothing and I like the effect of the slow speed on the mood. Love the colors of the reflections. Well done, tfs.

Hello David, the colours of the lights and their reflections across the smooth water are so beautiful.
Your DoF is excellent, as we are able to see yet more skyscrapers in the distant background.
The curving wall leads us right into the picture.
Good to see a shot from you, regards Jean.

Hi David,
This must be one of the best ive seen in a long time. Interesting patterns and lines created from the reflections. Very crisp image with all the elements to create this well defined, sharp and soft lit urban metropolis.
PS Thx for positive critique and wshop. Always tends to uplift ones photos.

Always a great pleasure to see your "clean" pictures......
Bravo David !!
