Landmark Tower and ADIA HQs in Abu Dhabi. Photographed on 24th January 2013 at 7:20am from the tallest point of The Domain superskyscraper which is approximately 381 meters or 1,250 feet high.This is a stitched panorama, assembled out of 9, single-frame exposures.Image was processed in a 16-bit per pixel colour space in order to avoid any gradation banding which can occur in 8-bits per pixel environment. LR 4.4 was used to pre-processing. 16-bit TIFF files were assembled using Photoshop's automated Photomerge feature. Final tweaks were accomplished with Color Efex Pro 4 and Viveza 2. I also painted a few exposure masks in order to control the tones on the buildings and the surrounding fog. I was going for a very intense and emotional interpretation of the light. Gotham City is an endless well of inspiration.On a hardware side of things; I used Canon 5dmk2 coupled with the razor sharp Canon 50mm f1.2L. I opted for this lens due to the very low barrel distortion and minimal vignette which makes this lens an ideal choice for stitched panoramas.visit me on Facebook:
