<<< o >>>the gate #3 7 comments + add yours

This is the third in this small series, and like the previous two it's an HDR constructed from seven RAW files, merged using Photomatix Pro.

Unlike the previous two though, this one's a bit more abstract, not least because it's mostly a reflection in an opposite building. I nearly posted this in black and white, to match the other two in the series, but decided I preferred the colour version of this one, not least because the detail in the building stands out a bit more.

Tomorrow's image, by way of contrast, is a portrait, after which I'll post two more HDR shots of the gate, both of which also include the Emirates Towers hotel in the background.

3x2 + HDR + travel [Dubai, UAE] + urban

My favourite of the series also. Love the futuristic look that the HDR brings to the shot. Hope the sessions are going well.

David excellent series of Dubai images, you say you don't do architecture shots. I don't know why these have all been inspirational.

Going against the flow here I guess but for all it's worth, I do like #2. Agree on this one working so much more effectively in colour though

Glad you posted the colour, I like the subtle blues, green and pinks.
