Traditional UAE

I found this Traditional Restaurant, called as Al Fanar in the dubai festival city by accident. I just knew this would be the right subject for HDR. This subject is quite different from what i shoot HDR in the recent days. As soon as i entered this place, there were lot of statues here depicting the tradition of UAE before the discovery of Oil. As i was shooting inside i felt like this were real people looking at me while shooting. It was weird feeling though. Anyway, i think it a place you should visit if you enjoy emirati cusines or would love to try.
