And P.S, I like the people in there, too. Gives it scale, and a sense of humanity amidst all that architecture.

Thanks a lot for the comments.

I had a version without the people but it just felt "empty".

This shot is beautiful... except for the people walking the other way. However, I don't think it takes too much away from the beauty of the shot. I also see a bit too much noise in the sky (do you use noise reduction software?).

the 'squashed' people on the left are a distraction... but otherwise a fantastic shot! great use of wideangle!

Have not visited Dubai in a number of years now. I love shooting there, so many interesting things to see. Beautiful shot by the way. Not sure if it would be better with or without the people.

A friend of mine likes the couple on the left, however i would have liked to have seen it without them so you can see the architecture behind. Stunning photo, love the stillness of the water.

a little too much empty space in the upper-left quadrant for me, but great tones and a cool surreal feel with the tower in the background

I love how that tower looks, it's one surreal image with a surreal tower in the background. Makes me want to visit want to pack up and visit this place, so I can see it for myself. Also enjoy a good reflection.

Gorgeous shot. The lighting and exposure are perfect. The only thing I'm not fond of is the perspective distortion. 7

The people kind of detract for me here. However, there is still no denying that this is gorgeous.
