The Famous Dubai Fog

This Picture shows the Dubai Downtown area Covered in Fog.  It is one most amazing scene to experience but it is also one of the hardest also.  It was predicted that it will be a foggy night, so I set my alarm at 2.30 am to check for fog. At 2.30am the Fog blanket was almost rolling into the city. I had 30 minutes to go at a rooftop of any 40+ high-rise towers. As I reached my Favorite rooftop I saw the Magical Fog blanket covering all the towers and the entire high-rise tower are half covered making it a magical view to experience.

This image is a 3-bracket image but only 2 exposures used in Blending it. I used Lightroom for standard touch up and corrections and then Photoshop to blend the image. Later I used Nik colorefex (Pro contrast, tonal contrast) and Dfine (Denoise) then sharpen it using High pass filter and exported the image.
