Yep, last photo of the two bridges is my vote too, best of the lot.

Thanks for the comments/critique.

The ship water feature is something that a lot of people in Dubai drive past without really noticing. At night it looks better as the water flowing from the main mast looks like a billowing sail as it is uplit. I thought I'd give it a go as I was passing by.

The bridge is the favourite of the set for me too. I revisited this evening to try a night shot.

The Sigma 10-20 is definitely the lame duck in my camera bag. In daylight it is OK, but at night it flares horribly at any aperture with point light sources. Ho hum, I'll have to make do until I go full frame and get either a Nikon 14-24 or Zeiss 21. Anyway, here's a night version - I like the way the light spills through and dances on the water in the foreground, but hate those "starbursts" you get from the street lights - yuck!

Great set Phil! I like the deserted look that they have.
