Pic(k) of the week 50: DUBAI SKYLINE - NEVER BORING

The Dubai skyline is never a boring photo subject! Ever changing with new high-rises appearing on a constant basis, it remains one of these things I tend to come back to every winter; when the weather is more suitable to landscape/cityscape photography!

Beside trying to document the changes in the skyline, I'm always on the lookout for new angles. Such was the case when I found the view below from a relatively new man-made island.  

I used to live in one of the apartment buildings in the middle of the shot when I first got to Dubai in 2002. Hard to believe that more than 2/3rd of the high-rise buildings in the frame below, where physically not there 15 years ago! 

Image details:
  • Fujfilm X-T2 with the XF10-24 f4 lens
  • ISO200, f14, 17mm, 27sec
  • RAW file development in Lightroom CC Classic
  • Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 with gradient and Pro Contrast filter

I'm planning to shoot an exciting Dubai cityscape with the Fujifilm GFX Medium Format camera, in a few days... Let's see if the plan will come together!
