    Well, I am home from Abu Dhabi! As you all know, I love night photography, so my tripod took the trip with me and I got out and about to take some pictures! No adjustments were made to any of these except for curves and levels.

    Jet lag also came to my advantage, because I was able to shoot my first sunrise ever, and it was a beauty!

    Also, the water shown is the Persian Gulf :)

    Enjoy, I will post some other threads too of different themes.

    Seems as though #6, #7 is slightly tilted.

    Great series none the less!!

    Very nice series of a place totally unknown to me, and I do love the green in the first as it sets itself so clearly apart from the blue of the night sky.

    You're doing some really nice night photography!

    Photos 6 and 7 will soon leak and the water of the Persian Gold will run out of DH's computer and onto his desk - unless you rush and straighten those horizons ;) ;) ;)!!!

    LOL, yea, I saw the horizons after I took the pics and forgot to straighten them. It's funny cause I never have crooked horizons, especially with a tripod!

    You are so lucky to be there!!!

    I was lucky enough to live there for 3 years when I was younger, I now regret moving back to Canada...

    Every time I hear "Abu Dhabi" I instantly think of piles of money.

    Some great photos here. Nice work.

    As you well should! The pictures can't even demonstrate! Also, the best parts of the trip, I wasn't allowed to photograph! Ah, to have photog rights in other countries!
