Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Dubai
Time
I took this photo during the night.
Lighting
The contrast between the night sky and all of the lights of the city make for an extremely sci-fi look. The exposure time is 2 minutes here so all of the car lightning goes swirling through the image which makes for a very cool effect.
Equipment
Sony A7RII, Zeiss 16-35, Manfrotto 055xpro3 Tripod
Inspiration
This view was familiar to me as I shot it before. However, I never shot it properly and I knew I had to someday. The weather at that day was great and there were nice clouds which is rare in Dubai. The wind direction was also perfect.
Editing
I always do post processing, however in this shot not that much color-correction was needed. I enhanced contrast and colours a bit, but that's about it. Most of the work went into stitching the images in Photoshop as this is a vertical panorama.
In my camera bag
I normally bring a Sony A7RII & Sony A7II, Zeiss 16-35 f4, Zeiss 55 f1.8, Minolta 135mm f2.8 for some longer distance shots. I also usually bring a bunch of ND filters and a shitload of batteries!
Feedback
This shot has an extremely sci-fi look because of the extreme buildings, the intersection curves but especially because of the night timing which shows all the light in a perfect way. When capturing cityscapes, try to include interesting intersections, curves in roads or other interesting shapes combined with car lights and lights of buildings. This could often prove interesting in compositions.
