Title • the gate #2

Like yesterday's this is a shot of the underside of the DIFC, and also like yesterday's it's an HDR, constructed from a seven shot sequence using Photomatix Pro.

Unlike yesterday's though, it's considerably more angular as it was shot at 16mm with my 16-35mm rather than the 15mm fisheye. When I first processed both these images I preferred yesterday's, but now I'm not so sure. I like both of them – there's something about the curvature of the reflection that I really like – but think that maybe this one has the edge.

As always, I'd be interested to hear what you make at it, and which you prefer.

Tomorrow's image, by way of comparison, is a street scene taken in Al Seef, after which I'll post a somewhat less stark shot of the DIFC.
