Here is an image I shot back in 2010 of Burj al Arab and decided to reprocess it. Going back to my origins by creating such surrealistic images. Unfortunately, I took this image in JPEG but am glad I managed to make the best of it. I was fortunate to be present there at a time when a storm was rolling over which is pretty rare in Dubai. Even this view is hard to find as they have construction going on now. Talk about being lucky. 🙂
I hope you all enjoy this image too and feel free to share it as well! Love you all!
