[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A long absence in TL and finally am back now. Blue hour at Dubai Festival City (DFC) with Intercontinental Hotel at the front. A limited space in the area makes me difficulty for finding a good POV as there is lot of obstacles at the back plus am already sweating while taking this shot, it seems humid days in Dubai will not going to end.

I like the faded colors of blue right after the sunset and the buildings that started to lit-up caught its magical beauty with its reflections.

Cloned-out dots spots, slightly cropped, levels and added contrast, sharpen by USM and resize.

Hello, Buddy -
Just a wonderful blue-hour image; incredibly sharp details and rich colors. The f/16 aperture and long exposure really created a wonderful effectd. The only small nit I have is the slightly distracting bright ball of light in the bottom right corner, which could have been cloned out or reduced. Otherwise, excellent work.
