You may know the Burj al Arab from the photos of its tennis court high above the city of Dubai or you may know it as the world’s only seven-star hotel.  I was drawn to it because it resembled a massive, luxurious sailboat out on the Persian Gulf.  And now I love it because a co-worker helped me move past a hurdle on nighttime shots.  What do you think?  How did I do?

  1. Good shot. You did very well!

  2. Amazing! I never seen it from this point of view! Much more exciting! Also a great night photography shot!

  3. Gorgeous. Did you get to go inside too? I’m so intrigued by Dubai.

    • Sadly, I didn’t get to go inside. I did Google images of the interior and am going to try to make it inside, hopefully up to the bar/restaurant that sticks out of the other side, if I ever go back.

  4. You did very well 🙂


I love hearing from you!
