Pic(k) of the week 21: FESTIVAL CITY - BUSINESS BAY BRIDGE, Dubai

Festival city, is a large residential, business and entertainment development along the Dubai Creek, close to Business Bay bridge. The project was started in 2003 and its expansion is now slowly coming to the "complete status".

Across the Creek, under the Business Bay bridge, one has a spectacular view on the two Festival city hotels.

The image was made during my favourite time, the 15 min lasting "blue hour", just after sunset. This short time window, allows me to have a nice balanced look between the foreground (under the bridge) and the architecture in the background.

Image details:
Fujifilm X-Pro2 with the XF 10-24 f4 lens
ISO 200, f8, 26s, 21mm (31mm full frame equivalent)
RAW development in Lightroom CC
Nik ColorEfex Pro for optimal contrast

For years "bridges" have played a big role in my Architectural photography; a quick collection of some of these shots, can be found here.

Remember: "We build too many walls and not enough bridges" Isaac Newton
