Luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi at night

Abu-Dabi-y-hoteles-de-lujo.jpg

 

On April 2015 I visited Abu Dhabi and, one night, using my tripod and some filters I tried to capture some nice shots of the Al-Ras Al-Akhdar district. In the photo you could see the Etihad Towers to the left (there is an intense scene there in Fast&Furious 7), where the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is (and where I stayed during my trip). To the right, you see the Emirates Palace, the most expensive hotel in the world and owned by Abu Dhabi's royal family. Between them you'll see some other hotels that at that time were still under construction, such as a Grand Hyatt and the Bab Al Qasr.

 

The picture is a long exposure (I believe it was at least 30 seconds) so, of course, you need a tripod for something like that.

Que hermosa foto @LuisRG , esta buena la indicación para tenerlo en cuenta cuando realice una foto de ese estilo. Es un lugar que por lo menos hay que visitar una vez, esta muy lejos de TDF.

Thanks @Corrie. And in a few years time Abu Dhabi is going to be like Dubai is today. Frank Gehry is building a new Guggenheim, Zaha Hadid designed another museum, Sir Norman Foster another one, and Jean Nouvel is the designer of the Louvre that they will have.

Thanks @LuisRG for sharing! How many stops did you use for your filter?  The sky colour is really pretty too - what time did you shoot this?

@YanniY I use a Neutral Density filter of 8 stops to be able to take long exposure shots even in daylight :)

What a eye catching photo you snapped @LuisRG.

The water seems like a blue floor. Buildings are reminding me of Las Vegas.

But I never have been in Las Vegas, I watched the place in YouTube videos. hahaha :)
