This is a slightly impressionistic rendition of Dubai Marina in the UAE, one of the most fabulous projects anywhere on this planet, aka as the 'Tallest Block in the World'. Dubai's ultra modern architecture, coupled with dramatic morning light, fog, do wonders to my imagination so I hope this photograph reflects that.

Tech talk: This is a horizontal vertorama made out of 5-exposure HDR. Pre-processing was done with LR 4.2, stitching with Photoshop CS 5.5. Final grade with Viveza 2, Color Efex Pro where I converted it into monochromatic duotone.
camera: Canon 5D Mk2, Canon 70-300mm f4.0 IS L USM, Helipan CPL, Gitzo GT 5541LS tripod and RRS BH-55 ballhead.
