Look Above

500px: https://500px.com/photo/109903671/look-above-by-baber-afzal

This image was taken during a photowalk in San Francisco in the year 2013. Julia Anna Gospodarou was the one leading the walk along with Nathan Wirth and I was blessed to be a part of it too. Many other amazing photographer friends were a part of it as well whom I got to know at that time!

The following image is a composite of 2 images. The long exposure sky is a separate image merged into this image taken in San Francisco. Thought it was about time I worked on it.

Cryptic Tide (Monochrome Edition)

500px: https://500px.com/photo/104804145/cryptic-tide-(monochrome-edition)-by-baber-afzal

Taken at blue hour during the same day when the fog engulfed the city's skyline. I felt the need to produce a high contrasted black and white image in order to highlight the fog that existed and at the same time darken the buildings too.
Hope you guys enjoy it too!

The Afterlight

"_Be the light you were meant to be so the World can follow you_"

Took this image when the fog rolled into the city. Fortunately, the fog remained low till before dawn but once the sun rose, the fog started to lift up. 

I am glad I finally got a great image from this perspective during the blue hour. The real challenge I faced in this image was to create a balance in the colour so I had to reduce the blues and orange from the street light in order to create some harmony. 

I am content with the way it has turned out and I hope you all enjoy it too!

Along the Curve I

Here is another sandscape image I shot on the same day when I was out shooting with Ian, Sally and John. 

What I loved about this perspective was the feel the sun's light gave on the sand dune below. Soft and yet slightly harsh and the reason for it to behave this way was because the sun was hiding behind the clouds at that point in time. 

The other reason was to show the beautiful texture that exists on the sand too. Just love the way it curves along the bend!

Along the Curve

Taken today during sunset in the middle of the Desert at the outskirts of Dubai. Since it had rained yesterday, the sand was a bit rigid so thankfully it was easier to walk on. That is one of the reasons why the sand had such rough texture too as it can been in the image.

ENVISION

I have had this image in my archives for almost 5 months now and I guess it was time for me to work on it again. 

I felt blessed to have access to this location since its highly restricted but I saw a beautiful perspective from there of the Dubai Skyline and had to have a go at it. I leave it to your imagination where I took this image from since I can't really disclose it. 

The arch of that place really frames the skyline of the city majestically and I spent a good 2 hours shooting there. 

The sky however has been composited into the image to make it more dramatic as the sky on that day was pretty dull. 

I believe its one of my finest works of this year but I may reprocess it later again just to make more improvements to it. 

Hope you guys enjoy it as well & God Bless! :)

INAUGURATION

500px:
https://500px.com/photo/104589953/inauguration-by-baber-afzal

Revival of a classic taken in 2010 on the inauguration of Burj Khalifa. I happened to find my way to the top of Souk Al Bahar that day and half an hour later was arrested by the police for being there with no proper permit. LOL 

Thankfully after 45 minutes of interrogation, they let me go with a warning but all I can is that, it was worth it! 

If I get the chance to go there again legally, I would! smile emoticon 

Hope you guys enjoy it too!

The Approach

500px:
https://500px.com/photo/104122379/the-approach-by-baber-afzal

Taken over the weekend when I went out shooting with Rilind. The sky was really hazy that day so that is why you can't see the sun properly plus the sunlight ended up being a bit weak too. 

Regardless of the circumstances, I did my best to bring out enough light in this image portraying the shades of light and texture on the sand dune as I approached the top. 

Another image manually blended and I hope you all enjoy it too! :)

To The Summit

Taken on the same day when I went out shooting with +John Kosmopoulos , +Ian Good  and +Sally good.  

I have to admit that this was a really hard one to shoot because the sand was so soft that I kept on sinking along with my tripod. I had to remain still with my legs partially submerged in sand for almost 15 minutes to get this right! 

Loved how the sand was drifting off the sand dune due to the strong winds and being complemented by the beautiful sun rays as well!
