365 Project : Day 314

Going back to my roots now, Cityscapes/Landscapes.  It’s that time of the year where the weather is getting cold and the sky is clearing up giving a rich blue tone.  This was taken early morning at the Downtown Burj Dubai.  Getting a nice old and new architecture at this vantage point. Gear: Canon 7D + 8-16mm Settings: f8 | 8 secs| ISO 100 ( DRI / Digital Blending of 3 exposures) Post processing: 3 exposures DRI Curves adjustments

365 Project: Day 266

A little break from portraits 🙂  Back to my first love, landscapes / cityscapes.  I really find lanscapes so fun to do, portraits are fun too but landscape or cityscape is more relaxing.  Summer is back back in Dubai and I’m surprised that the cold season went this long. Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 8-16mm Settings: f11 | 3.2 secs. | ISO 100 Post process: 3 Exposure blending using DRI Dodging and burning Curves adjustments Color Enhancements Cheers! /Mike

It’s really challenging to take a picture of the Burj Khalifa, simply because it’s very tall.  I mean, it’s not the tallest building […]

365 Project : Day 119

This building needs no introduction, The Burj Khalifa, formerly known as Burj Dubai.   I know, I already have a shot like this, but this one has a different backdrop 🙂  This one had a sunset view 😀 Anyway, to those who doesn’t know, Burj Khalifa is currently the tallest building on Earth, if you want to know the specifics, then google is your friend. Gear:  Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20 Settings: f9.0 | 1/160 | ISO 100 Post processing: Applied […]
