Abu Dhabi’s skyline, processed with my own Time-Dilation technique in which several exposures, captured at various times of the day are fused seamlessly into a surreal image like this one. It took more than 5 hours on a freezing windy night and morning to capture all images which make this composite.
It’s very interesting to see the effect of the artificial as well as natural light interact with the scene in this manner. This kind of visualization would not have been possible before the era of digital image processing. It’s really awesome to explore the new horizons of creative possibilities.

RAW files were captured with Canon 5dmk3 and Canon 50mm f1.2L lens. Base image was fused with Oloneo PhotoEngine HDR application.
Time-Dilation effect was processed with Photoshop CC 2015 and NIK Suite on a custom built PC running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
As usual, I used a pressure sensitive Wacom Intuos Pro tablet for image manipulation and layering.
