365 Project : Day 029

I am posting this right now from Golden Tulip Beach Resort here in Abu Dhabi.  I found this just right beside the hotel, the houses on the left are for the employees of the hotel and about the yachts… that one I don’t have any idea.  It was pretty dark here so I was forced to shoot this at ISO 200.

It’s a nice hotel, it is quite cozy in here.  Nonetheless a great place to relax and unwind, far from the busy streets of Dubai.

Gear: Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16 + Manfrotto Tripod + Timer Remote
Settings: f9.0 | 91 secs. | ISO 200

Post processing: (not so much since I have to do this on my Macbook Pro lying down and without any mouse)

  • Adjusted white balance, contrast, vibrance and clarity from Adobe Camera Raw
  • Applied noise reduction and some sharpening

Have a nice weekend to all!

  1. Your photos are so beautiful and inspiring!

    I was wondering, though, how you get your “twinkley lights” (for lack of a better name) to have so many points, like in this photo? I am a beginner, and can only get mine to have 6 points.

    • Thanks Abby! I really appreciate that 🙂

      About the “twinkle lights”, or the rays of the lights, it depends on your lens as well, how many blades and elements, but generally speaking, you can get more rays if you put your aperture high, like f9 or f14 or f22 and higher 🙂

      Hope that helps 🙂
