Dubai Architecture

A few days ago, I visited the Dubai Marina for a nice dinner with my husband and son, as well as for some photo opportunities. As the sun was setting and the buildings began to lit up, the marina was particularly photogenic. I took various pictures of the buildings while trying to use some of Helen Hooker's 20 Photography Composition Tips, including "Shooting from a Different Point of View".

For this picture, I squatted on the ground to add height to the cylindrical building on the left.  As you'll see later in Picture #3, the building can look quite different at a different angle in a different frame.

Here is another picture of buildings shot at a bottom-up angle, which enhances their height.  The building in the middle is perhaps directing the viewer's eye towards the moon, and the darker skyscrapers on the left and right are framing the overall picture.

This picture was taken more straight onto the buildings (as opposed being shot at a bottom-up angle).  I personally enjoy how the lit building in the forefront is framing the cylindrical building in the background (which was also shot in Picture #1).

Here are twin buildings shot a little more at a straight-on angle than in some of my other pictures.  I think the blue lights help the buildings pop out in the photo.

Another building shot from the bottom-up, as I was squatting on the ground.  The moon on the left hand side adds a little something to the picture, I think.

If you enjoyed these photos, please come see my other post entitled "Dubai Marina", which focuses more on the boats as well as the people in the area. Thank you for visiting my blog!
