Could you tell me what this building is and where? It resembles the Marina Bay sands in Singapore but with its own distinct character.

This is Gate Towers in Abu Dhabi on Al Reem Island. The shot was taken from one of two towers next door called, respectively, the Sun and Sky Tower. We almost moved into one of the suites in the bridge you can see and also one of the rooms that could capture this great photo. Ended up getting a villa !!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken from my 66th floor apartment of the opposite building, Sky Tower. Our window only opens about 2 inches so I had to tilt the lens so it would fir underneath the window and outside. I then slight adjusted the camera for the best composition. The picture was taken handheld.
Time
The photo was taken about 0730. My wife and I awoke to the fog. The first of the winter fog.
Lighting
The longer I left it the brighter it was getting as the sun was coming up.
Equipment
I used Nikon D500 with a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens. Nothing else, as mentioned above, it was taken handheld.
Inspiration
We haven't been long in our apartment and so this was our first winter. In Abu Dhabi the fog can come anytime between December and February. Waking up to this view was amazing.
Editing
It's quite funny as this photo has had no post-processing at all.
In my camera bag
Nikon D500, Nikon D7000, Sigma 10-20mm, Nikon 14-180mm, Nikon 50mm, Sigma 70-300mm, Sigma 150-600mm, 2 Polarisers, Speedlight flash.
Feedback
If your not sure just take the picture. Always be ready, you never know when an opportunity will arise. Also never give up, keep putting your photos into competitions, eventually you will win.
