Downtown Dubai

I got super lucky with the clouds. It’s a time blend.

I follow the weather over the course of the winter in Dubai, the one thing I always do is pay attention to the rain. When there is rain I start planning a shot. After a storm Visibility is vastly improved and the atmospheric haze is dampened down for about 36 hours, the sunset will have clouds and incredible colors.

Wow, nice shot! I can't help but wish you could've kept the clouds super sharp though. Very tasteful edit and colors, so many would have taken it too far.

Believe me there were edits that I took it too far, I’ve been concentrating on refining everything so I appreciate the comment, those clouds were moving so fast there was no hope of capturing them sharper without sacrificing iso which I’m not willing to do ever on landscape/cityscapes. thankyou for the kind words.
