Pic(k) of the week 10: DIFC - Dubai Arc

Another great place for Architectural photography in Dubai is DIFC, Dubai International Financial Center. Apparently the "tripod police" is known to patrol the area. I did however not see any "no photography" signs. 

2012 Pic(k) of the week 10: DiFC - Dubai Arc
Similar to the one in Paris, the main building at DIFC is an "Arc de Triomphe" like structure. Even though not officially called like this, I personally call it, "Dubai Arc".

In the middle section of the arc, we can see one of the oldest high-rise buildings in Dubai; The 1978 World Trade Center.

Another interesting perspective from below the Arc, can be found here.

Image details:
Nikon D700 with Nikkor 14-24 2.8
RAW development in Lightroom 4 (Yes, got it!)
CS5 for perspective correction
Nik ColorEfex Pro for contrast adjustment
Nik SilverEfex Pro 2 for Black & White conversion

This is one of the first images processed with the just released final version of Lightroom 4. So far, I'm really impressed. A great application just got even better!

Wherever you are, whatever you do, have a great weekend!
