The Giants' Alley by VerticalDubai The Giants' Alley by VerticalDubai
A walk amongst what will be "The Tallest Block on the Planet". All these buildings will eventually have between 80 and 120 floors.


EDIT:
Some have been asking about details: This is NOT a panorama, just a normal long exposure (no HDR either) taken with a wide angle lens on a full frame SLR. The settings are

Shutter Speed: 20 seconds
Aperture: F/11.0
Focal Length: 14 mm
ISO Speed: 200
White Balance: 3230K with a touch of Magenta

This has been featured on :groups: #Everything-Nikon. I love the effect you have managed to get with minimal post production. This is an example to many on how knowing how to use your kit can get some amazing results. Well done!

why? I think the beauty of this picture is that it shows the whole construction site and the full lenght of the buildings. It would miss a lot of key elements if it was cropped down.
