Lol! I haven't tried the restaurant yet.

I was trying a different type of PP on these shots, which seem to have worked.

My favourite is the buttress though - a good example of the texture and microcontrast that the CZ 2/35 picks up

A lot of Dubai seems to look like some abondoned retro-styled movie set - very moody with great lighting. These days I like to try and wait for a person to appear in an interesting point in many of my architecture/urban photos. I think an image of a distant person could add a nice focal point in some of these shots.

True Dubai seems to be deserted ... are you the only one living there?

Great night shooting Phil, the colouring is superb.

Cheers

Thanks for the feedback

@kimchi - good c&c. Unfortunately there was no-one around. This area is busy during the daytime and packed at weekends as there are lots of boutiques and stalls in the alleyways. There was one shot I took with someone in that night, but I was shooting at F11 at the time and they appeared a bit ghostly with the slow shutter.

@ kimchi

You're quote about a movie set has just come true.

To be featured in a Mission Impossible film coming up in the near future!

I was walking along the creek over the weekend and saw that MI-4, or whatever it will be called, is being filmed at the moment in Dubai. There are going to be a few scenes around the Burj Khalifa tower as well - Mr Cruise was dangling off it over the weekend...
