City reflection

January 29, 2020

This photo was shot using Olympus E-M1 Mark ii and 12-40mm f 2.8 Pro lens from 43rd floor of Aspin tower in Dubai. I have to place the camera lens agains the glass panel to get a symmetrical reflection of Downtown Dubai. For that I have to open the glass panel window making sure I got a good hold of the camera afraid that I might drop it.

12mm · f/4.0 · 1/125s · ISO 64

I am surprised windows can be opened at that height. Great idea for a shot.

The windows can be opened only 6 inches max that's why it's hard to shoot.

Great picture. Science fiction in real life.

Never been to Dubai, so could never guess. Just an amazing image. Thanks for effort required to get this photograph
