Hi TL Folks!

i took a short break from work and had a stay at Hilton Resort Ras Al Khaima.

Here's a shot of the main pool in front of the lobby.
I waited for the blue hour to come, and while most of the guests are busy having dinner, i waded neck deep in the water with my tripod and took some long exposure shots.
If it had been in the sea it would be a disaster for me and the gear. Fortunately pools dont have waves,.

thanks for the peek!

Hello Ian!
Wonderful blue hour composition and great perspective!
I love your lens!
Best regards!

Hello Ian,

I am so impressed that you were willing to wade into the water with your camera to achieve your desired shot!
The blue hour colours are beautiful and link well with the reflected lights.
There is a nice symmetry about the shot but, perhaps a little crop from the top would improve the thirds composition.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
