Dubai Marina at night, please have a look and let me know your opinion,

 

Camera is Nikon D5100, 18 – 55 mm lens,

 

I have added some post processing in LR,

 

The Most difficult thing was the distortion, i found it too difficult in this photo, DSC_0895-Large.jpgDSC_0896-Large.jpgDSC_0898-Large.jpgDSC_0899-Large.jpgDSC_0901-Large.jpg

nice work samer , next time try to use tripod and low ISO to eleminat the distortion

i think if you use long shutter speed it will give a nice look 

 

but i loved them all , you are doing great

Mostafa,

 

Thank you for passing by and commenting,

I did not mean that i do not like the noise because of high ISO and darkness, i was talking about distortion in the buildings in 1st and 2nd and 3rd photo,

Regarding the tripod it was not possible due to the heavy crowd around, all photos are hand hold and I used slightly slow shutter speed this why you can see the buildings having a feeling of motion, since I was in a moving boat when I took the shots,

Incredible place to live or visit.

Would love to go there with my camera one day and take a few

thousand pictures lol!

Did you increase the colour saturation a lot in Lr during post processing?

samerh,

Great shots samerh though there are few distortion in it.

I know its very difficult get a good shot there as the crowds are the main concern.

Dale, you can shoot millions of shots there in Dubai as Dubai got everything to show you, from landscape to the vibrant street photography. I think Dubai is one of the best place in the world to shoot night photos. Incredible place to live and enjoy holiday!!

I was there last month on  few days and I missed the opportunity. I am also look forward to stay there few days to take a few thousand pictures.

samerh
I usually back off a little in post processing with vivid colours BUT
Dubai is such an incredible city that the brilliant and vibrant colours
seem justified here.
Most of us only dream of being able to take pictures in such an extrordinary
location. 
You have done really well considering these shots were hand held. Whenever
I take night shots I always use a tripod and a timer but I understand that with
the amount of people in the area you were not able to do that.
Looking forward to future posts of this beautiful city.
