My view of the Dubai Marina. I've taken this shot at least 100 times over the past 6 years, but I think this is my favorite angle. Luckily, it wasn't too hazy that day. Usually it's hard to get rid of the reddish glow in the sky.

Very nicely done! Nice job getting rid of the ever present red hue. Here's a view from my balcony down at the south end of the marina: //tinyurl.com/5utplez

Love fisheye photos. I like how your composition encompasses the body of water. The blue of the sky is brilliant. Great shot.
