This was taken while we were walking about inside Dubai's Zabeel Park. With my trusty Nikon D7000 and a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens, I saw this beautiful Japanese-themed structure slightly backlit against this wonderful soft "golden hour" light. While in manual mode (13mm, f8, 1/40, ISO 100), I took the shot and later did very minimal post-processing. I didn't have to do a lot of unnatural editing as the natural contrast created by the evening blue sky and the greens below already helped to draw attention to the striking colored cloud formation.
