You all must have probably seen this shot a hundredsmillions uncountable times, in fact, its the first thing that comes to mind when the word “Dubai” is being tossed around in a conversation.
Any ways, I tried experimenting with Photoshop to try and make my shot stand out from the rest, and no matter what I tried, I think it looks best as it is. Raw.
Standing at approximately 100 meters less than a kilometre, the Burj Dubai Khalifa is just one way of showing what man can accomplish today, in a place where dunes used to make up the landscape, just more than a decade ago.
Having moved out of Dubai for the first time in several years, seeing this scene every evening is on my top five list of “Things I miss about Dubai”, right between my mum’s home cooked meals and how warm home was. Sigh. Oh well. :P
