Outstanding.

Behind The Lens

Location
This shot was taken from the Shangri La Hotel which is located next to the Sheikh Zayed Road and offers a perfect view over downtown Dubai.
Time
Around 7PM, during the blue hour.
Lighting
The sunset was perfect. The Sheikh Zayed Road leads the eye directly to the setting sun.
Equipment
I used a Canon 6D with a Canon 16-35mm F4 lens combined with a general tripod.
Inspiration
I always wanted to take a shot of this outstanding skyline. Due to that, I was more than happy to get a permission for the hotel roof. The view was unbelievable.
Editing
Most of the post processing took place in Lightroom, I did some color correction in Photoshop and fixed some small details.
In my camera bag
I generally have my camera backpack with me. I carry a Canon 6D, a 16-35mm F4 wideangle lens, a Sigma 50mm Art and my tripod. Enough gear to take great photos without having to much weight to carry.
Feedback
My only advice is to think about your shot. What do you want to achieve? How should your picture look like? If you can answer yourself these questions beforehand, its much easier get the perfect shot.
