Wow that's amazing! Now that's something you can put against a wall or something like that :)

Thanks Matz45

The morning after some very late night pp, it still needs a bit more tweaking!

I missed out of cropping rocks on the very bottom left, there's a blemish in the sky around the skyline 1/3rd of the way in from the right, and I missed a star trail or two :cry:

The detail's pretty good though - I'm getting more detail from the Carl Zeiss 35mm than the 24-70 f2.8 at 48-50mm from the same viewing point.

It may take a while to load as it's a big file, but the full sized link is here:

Looks mint! I agree with Matz - this needs to be put up on a wall.

Wonderful pic! A `wall-hanger` for sure.

The detail in the full res. version is really incredible, although maybe you should watermark it?

I like it much more now with the black sky. Dubai looks like the Hong Kong of the Middle East, it seems.

I'm just curious, how much midtone would you lose in an HDR if you only used the 1" and 15" exposures? I'm completely clueless about HDR, but with a 4-stop difference from lightest to darkest exposure and most sensors capturing 8 or 9 stops of EV, it seems like alot of extra processing. Again, I've never done HDR.

Both great photos Phil. I think I prefer the lighter sky.

Thanks guys

I prefer the currents in the water (or lack of them) on the first shot, but the colour temp and cast is more accurate for the buildings in the second. It will be a pain in the *** to select the skline to brighten the buildings on the 2nd shot though - I may give it a try.

Ideally I'd have a dusky twilight sky colour, but with the speed of the sunset it may be tricky to get an even light across the panorama as it takes time to shoot the whole view.
