Photographer's Note

Most people are aware of the huge amount of construction taking place throughout Dubai, with barely a kilometre of land unaffected by the massive development happening.
It is often said that Dubai is one massive construction site, with only pockets of land portraying yes, but still very appealing. If you choose your location carefully, get there at the right time, and crop out certain unsightly objects, you can still capture something quite attractive. In this case I got to my location just after sun rise, and managed to capture these perfectly still reflections in one of the man-made lakes in Jumairah Islands residential development, partly seen at the right side of the image...including a bit of greenery. The tall buildings in the background are part of the Marina development seen in some of my previous postings.
I increased the contrast slightly and did some additional cropping.
