Good Morning Everyone. My journey in Dubai was amazing with your support. I’ve travelled to Wollongong (South of Sydney), Australia a few days back. This place is beautiful. From the greenery, to exotic animals, from the weather to the fruits, It’s all like a dream. Love this place. You can call it a gift for a photographer.
So here is a peek at one of my latest landscape shots. I’ve used leading lines with the stairs on the right side. The long grass stand at the left third of the image. Has been placed apt in my opinion. I’ve used some curves and saturation layers on Photoshop. Turned out amazing! Specially love the colour in the sky.

Thank you everyone!
A simple snap after a long time. Minimal post processing. I’ve only worked on saturation. It was interesting to watch those kids skate and ride a cycle with joy through that forceful water sprinkling every few minutes.
Hello everyone, It has been a very long time. I’ve taken a break from photography for a while. I am currently focussing on 5 web design projects before I head out to Australia.
But it does not mean that I leave you guys hanging alone right here. Come take a look at my new snapshot from Jumeirah Beach. This place seems to be very famous among photographers in Dubai. To be frank, I’ve never been to this place before even though I have visited the Jumeirah Open Beach infinite times.
I’m also going to give a few links of different photographers who tried a similar shot from the same point. All of them have done a great job, but I seem to see things from different aspects. I’ve focussed on editing more than composition since it is inspired by those pictures.
I’ve used FDR Tools Basic to Enhance Details and Tone Mapped 9 different 1″ second long exposures followed by Adobe Photoshop CS6 to work on lighting and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 for minor adjustments.
I would love to see some feedback on this one. You are most welcome to compare my shot with the links provided below.
I would also like to note that this photo was shot at 16mm as compared to the others which were shot at focal lengths less than 16mm.
Here’s one of my old images from Jebel Hafeet. I’ve used Photomatix Pro for a Single Image Tone Mapped HDR. Well technically it’s not a HDR as it comes from a single image, but they simply call it HDR because the software calls it so. Basically brings out the details with color saturation, detail enhancer, luminosity, micro-smoothening and strength. I know they are a lot of terms, but they definitely do help. This image was completely worked on in Photomatix.
Leave a feedback leaving color suggestions out. Thanks guys!
PS: Also want to point out at some noise in the image. Next time I’ll try Dfine 2.0 by Nik software.
Good Afternoon friends,
Another day, another picture. This shot consists of the tall United Arab Emirates flag followed by the Dubai Drydocks World, a shipyard where they repair ships and store requirements of an offshore construction job. But that is besides the point.
I’ve tried to post process this image to look like one of those pictures of old Dubai. Let me know whats is your interpretation of this image. Thank you in advance.
I consider myself lucky of being in Dubai specially because of the kinds of creative architectural building that I find here.
This is a 2 exposure HDR processed with Photomatix Pro and Photoshop CS6. I imagine a HDR with more than 2 exposures would have been better but it didn’t strike me when I was out there below this wonderful structure.
Maybe if I get the permission to shoot at The Gate once more, I’ll try a full color 7 exposure HDR.
Good Afternoon everyone!
Another shot from the cheese building. I like the composition here. Not a big fan of the colors but I’d say its worth the share.
As promised, I have shared my latest photograph of an abstract version of the Sheikh Zayed Road.
While the shutter was open for 30″ seconds, and my camera was handheld, I thought of rotating the camera 360*. The effect turned out brilliant. Hit the Share button and post a review.
Thank you for your continued support.
Good Afternoon friends,
This is my second last picture of the Sheikh Zayed Road as I have many shot from different locations of this road. I wasn’t very keen on sharing this, mainly because I feel it needs more post-processing but a friend suggested, “something is better than nothing.”
Recently, it rained in Dubai. This caused the unclean glass of the Dubai Metro Walk bridge. I had the camera handheld for 30″ seconds to get the light trails right but unfortunately, that wasn’t enough. I added layers of masks to increase contrast, add colors, lighten up dark areas and darken light areas of the image. The aperture was set to f/22 to have the light burst effect on the light poles.
My next image will an abstract version of the same shot, where I rotate the camera 360* while the shutter was open to taken in all the light. Check it out tomorrow.
Thank you guys!
Good Morning guys.
This shot is from the roof bar of Four Points Sheraton hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road. Normally there are a lot of people here but I went at the right time when the roof bar was closed. There were only a few people on the pool side (other side of the roof).
In this shot, I’m focussing on the reflection and how it creates an interesting image. The strong yellows are the result of harsh sunlight and post-processing.
Share is with your friends and let me know what you think about this image.
My opinion would be to try a landscape of the same shot to get more area towards the sides. Would look great.
