    Amazing city and country. I was lucky enough to live there for 3 years.

    I really like the composition of the second shot. This area looks beautiful, however to be honest these pictures need some work. Try playing around with white balance settings, iso settings, and using a tripod when necessary to get that extra detail in your shots. You definitely have a beautiful area to perfect your pictures in!

    Composition of number 2 is very nice, however I think that the set slightly lacks tones, maybe if you tried it when the lighting was less grey and murky you might get some harsher contrasts.

    How did it get the name for this location?

    Cornish? Do you know?

    Would be interested to hear and/or read.

    Cornish as a word is originally a word from English language as I think, and we use it in Arabic also as a description of the sea side walk area.

    and this picture is in Abu Dhabi city

    I too really like that second shot, with the curve of the seaside walk drawing one's eye into the shot.

    pronounced "korn-eesh"

    I grew up in Beirut Lebanon, we had a cornish [I think it would be spelled corneesh or korneesh???] along the water the entire coastline in Beirut. It is a waterfront road / walkway. Typically middle eastern, very wide sidewalk along the water. Nice.

    That's quite interesting, that little fact.

    I actually live in Cornwall, UK, and the people here are referred to as the Cornish, which is a Celtic nation with it's own language, which is also referred to as the Cornish language.

    That's why I was interested.

    Many thanks for the extra insight.
