Behind The Lens

Location
This Image was taken from the Rooftop of 53 floor tall tower in Dubai
Time
It was getting very hazy at midnight, so I prepared myself that its Going to be Foggy that Night. So at 3 am I left my Home for Rooftop and 3.30am I witnessed this Surreal Sight.
Lighting
It was 3.30 am the sky was dark but the Road and Tower Lights. As the Fog started flowing in, it started getting Very dreamy Atmosphere.
Equipment
This shot was taken by canon 5d Mark iii with 17-40mm F/4 Lens
Inspiration
I saw few images of Dubai city covered in Fog but I never witnessed it. I always wanted to take a fog image but Fog is unexpected and its not easy to Get an access to a rooftop. But that night Luck was my Side as i Predicted Fog early and I had an access to this tower.
Editing
Yes, This is 4 manual Exposures. First i did basic adjustment in Adobe Lightroom(hsl,lens correction, highlights and shadows) then I exported it to Photoshop. I manually blended all the Exposures and added some Contrast , Orton Effect, Sharpness and Noise Reduction. I resized and exported for web
In my camera bag
Normally I Pack my Canon5d mark iii , Canon 50mm F1.4 lens, Canon 17-40 F/4l, Canon 24-105 F/4l,canon 70-200 f/4, yongnuo speedlite and Finally My GoPro.
Feedback
Shooting at Rooftop is not Easy Especially at Fog. One mistake the Consequence will be Big Such as tripping over the Roof as it get very wet Cause of Fog, dslr falling over the tower, damaging the A/c plants on The roof. So i Suggest to be extra cautious when visiting Rooftop for shooting Fog.
