    Hi Tareq,
    Nice shots indeed. Very good exposed.

    A little remark on # 3, 4 and 6.

    To my oppinoin the building lean back a little to much.
    Maybe correcting it a little in photoshop can improve it.
    Don't misunderstand me, it doesn't always have to be perfectly straight, I just think if you reduce it a little ( not completly) it might look even more better.

    The #1 is my favorite from this series.

    Very good results with your practicing.

    You need a Tilt/shift for the Hassy?

    Re: Marsa Dubai at night

    Greta stuff, I love city nightscapes. Man I wish my city looked like that. Our skyline is pathetically weak. I've seen other shots of Dubai and it certainly has some impressive buildings. Some feedback about my likes and dislikes,

    I really like the strong contrast, vibrant colours in all of them. Really seem to stand out and look alive. I like the motion blur of the boat (in 3 in particular) against the clarity of the buildings. The long exposure smoothing of the water is nice and doesn't detract from focus on the buildings and accentuates their lighting, the softened reflections show up more of the colour that you'd miss looking at them directly. I think 1st 2nd 3rd (and a few others) could do with some minor work to get rid of the flares, not too distracting and minor but easily cloned out (unless you like them and it's deliberate choice).

    Number 6 is probably my least fav but it's still good (better than I'd manage I assure you ) the thing i don't like is it's got more of an incadescent lighting yellow cast than the others, if it's not deliberate I think whitebalance tweak (shift toward blue) would be good. Also the lens distortion I'm not so keen on, admit it can add to photos sometimes but it's not my thing usually. The others have minor lens distortion but hardly notice and I think the looking up perspective shots in particular benefit as the leaning into the frame makes them look more towering. Lastly the top left of the frame on 3rd, 6th and 8th could do with cloning out the little bit of distracting building / flare on 3rd so as not to distract from what's in frame. Also very minor is I personally find the buoy in the left of the 3rd a bit distracting and would be easy to kill it.

    Hope you don't mind me saying. It is just my opinion and like i say I'm hardly an authority on this. All I can say is I like them a lot and the minor thinks I point out is because of that as I think the litle things improved will make them perfect. Can't wait to see more, especially the night ones. The more photos and vid I see of it the more of an awesome looking place it seems.

    Can't add a lot more, a TnS would be interesting and I suppose is d'rigour for architectural shots. I can see why the minor distortion bothers some people.

    Love nightscapes whatever.

    I have to agree with all the positive comments Tareq, I wish I could find a skyline like that, really nice photo's.
