This is one of the times when the sky looks so beautiful in dubai and i happen to be luck to have taken this shot. Since it was in the middle of the day when i shot it, i  choose a small Aperture setting (a large number-as the smaller your aperture the greater the depth of field) and bracketed the shot using hand held using ISO of 200 upto 9 brackets. The road side road acts as a leading line for the viewers.

How it was shot:

> Handheld
> Nine exposures auto-bracketed and merged to get and HDR
> Camera: Nikon D300s
> Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5

How it was tone-mapped:
> Preparation: developed the RAW files with ACR
> Resulting TIF images were then used as input to Photomatix
> Tone-mapping: Photomatix Pro 4.0 (Detail Enhancer)

How it was post-processed:
> Post-processing was done in Photoshop
> Topaz Adjust on the roads
> Curves for the Sky
> Nik Filter for the sand
> Imagenomic Noiseware on the entire image
> Sharpening
> Watermarking
