What would Abu Dhabi's night sky look like if it lay 6,000m above the sea level, somewhere in Chilean Andes? What would we be able to see if the sky wasn't plagued by the light pollution and haze like the skies of all the cities on this planet?We'll never know for real but perhaps, we can imagine it.This is a 5-stop HDR exposure of Abu Dhabi, captured at the Blue Hour (more like 'blue-20-mins') with my signature post-processing techniques and digital enhancements plus a few touches of matte painting. In other words, this is fine art, so please, treat it as such.I used Canon 5D Mk2 + Canon TS-E 24mm + Promote Remote Control for HDR bracketing.
