Pic(k) of the week 8: Dubai Creek Golf club house - TOP 100 Camera blogs

When the Dubai Creek Golf clubhouse was built in 1993, it reminded a lot of people of the Sydney Opera house. Apparently the buildings Architect, Brian Johnson, is always keeping at least one 20 UAE Dirham note in his wallet, as it shows the clubhouse in full glory; a perfect business card he calls it!

Over the years, my own Architectural photography has become a lot more minimalistic with the image below being a good example of that. Although I initially envisioned the image in black and white, I do like the color version more; more than likely because of the blue and yellow complementary colours.

 Image details:
  • Fujifilm X-T2 with the XF27mm f2.8 pancake lens
  • ISO 1000, f5.6, 1/1000s
  • RAW development in Lightroom CC
  • Nik ColorEfex Pro4 with neutral gradient filter and Pro Contrast

Last but not least, the Bjorn Moerman Photography blog made it into the Top 100 Camera blogs curated by Feedspot, one of the leading modern RSS readers for the web. Thanks to all the blog-readers, we made number 53 out of the 100 blogs selected. For a blog that has been run for almost 8 years without any advertising, I'm very happy with this achievement!

Well done Bjorn. What an achievement.

Can I ask why you used such high ISO and a fast shutter speed for that image?

Thanks for the comment. The high ISO is a leftover from an interior shoot just before. I don't have a problem shooting medium high ISO; up to 3200 I don't even blink.

Happy shooting,
