Well it's not really a landscape, and like most of Dubai it's definitely not natural, but here are a few shots of a small waterfall in Zabeel Park in the heart of Bur Dubai.

I visited yesterday morning but didn't pay too much attention to this area, so revisited today to get a bit more time around the bridge and waterfall.

Nice shot there dubaiphil! How did you make the water look so blurry? Slower your shutter speed I presume?

Well stopping down to F16 slows the shutter, and then putting a 10 stop ND filter on the lens slows things way down - most of these were around 20 second exposures

I guess it's safe to say that UV filters and polarizer filters aren't the only filters that give an effect that can't be done in Photoshop, it would be interesting to do some cloud photography with a neutral density filter.

Great shots by the way, it would be interesting to visit Dubai one day, the modern architecture is amazing to my understanding.
