One of my archived shots from 2015, re-processed in 2015. I took it in the desert at the outskirts of Dubai during my photo-outing with Colby Brown Photography. Yea, that's him trying to find his way back home.
I took this shot with a Canon 5Dmk2 and Canon 70-300 mm lens.
Processed with Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC 2015 and
Featured is Al Salam Tower, home of Du headquarters. This area of Dubai isn't often photographed but like the rest of this city, everything is work in progress. If close your eyes and open them 10 years from now, you probably won't be able to recognize this same frame. Ok. Make that 5 years.
Photographed with Canon 5Ds and Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and LEE Big Stopper (10-stops ND filter).

Many of you have requested I post the 3 shots which make the 'Time Dilation' shot, so here it is. 3 AM, 5 AM and 8 AM photos taken from the same location, from the roof of the Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road. Of course, having 3 great shots was just the starting point. The rest happened inside Photoshop and a few other plugins. It's a slow, painstaking process, but well worth the result.

There have been many photos of Dubai captured from this vantage point, but never like this.
What you're looking at is a mixture of 3 photos, captured at 3 different times; 3am, 6am and 8am. Unlike the usual time-lapse blended stills where mixing is done with simple gradients, this one is blended with layered masks on a facade-per-facade level. The result is surreal, somewhat disorienting and...pretty neat. I think I'm going to do a few more of these and name the style as 'time-dilation image blending'.
Captured in Jan 2015 with Canon 5Dmk3 and Canon 50mm f1.2L lens. Processed with Lightroom CC 2015, Photoshop CC 2015 and NIK Software with Wacom Intuos Touch Pro.
